October and November saw much good art in the Art Galleries. Material Worlds was featured in the Baer Gallery in October and filled with still life paintings by Cassie Marie Edwards and ceramic sculptures by Craig Clifford.
The Godschalx Gallery featured the exhibition, Plywood by Post. Project organizer, Katie Ries, Associate Professor of Art, St. Norbert College, invited artists to join her in a collaborative mail art project. The artists shipped thin pieces of birch plywood to each other, once a month, adding to each panel when it was in their possession.
The 2019 Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition was featured in the Baer Gallery in November. The exhibition included works by seventeen current St. Norbert College students. Awards were juried by curator, artist, and owner of the James May Gallery, Kendra Bulgrin. This year’s winners were: 1st Place, Hailey Buss, for the painting Celebration, 2nd Place, Megan Huth for the sculpture, Jumbo Avo, and 3rd Place, Bridget Van Beckum for the pattern design, Mallard Ducks. Honorable Mention Awards went to Hailey Bush for Freshwater Fish of North America, Rhiannon Cooper for Great Grandmother, and Noah Fidlin for Birdhouse.
Also on exhibit in October was 6×880=One, a collaborative project by students in Art 389, Aesthetic Rites and Rituals, taught by Fr. James Neilson. Each student created a piece that in length is one sixth of a mile, collectively making the work in the gallery one mile long.
There are still a few days to catch the November exhibitions, which run through Friday, Dec. 6.
