Evening of art supports student scholarships
The UW-Fond du Lac Art Students League will present the annual Art Momentum show and sale, 5-8 p.m. on Friday, May 8, in the University Center Commons, 400 University Dr. The event is free and open to the public.
Art Momentum is a student-run, organized and juried art event. The evening will feature student art work on display and available for purchase. There will also be music and light refreshments.
Students who participate in the Art Momentum show commit to donating half of the proceeds from each item sold to support a student art scholarship fund through the UW-Fond du Lac Foundation.
A selection of student art which will be included in Art Momentum can be previewed through May 4 in the window display at the Gallery & Frame Shop, 94 S. Main St., Fond du Lac.
For most of the students, this is their first experience showing work, having it judged and offering it for sale. A mixture of drawings, paintings and three dimensional work will be available for purchase.
“The students have been carefully selecting work for this event for several months,” said Wendi Turchan, art lecturer. “Art Momentum is a wonderful opportunity to show our support for the work done this year by the art students at UW-Fond du Lac.”
Student work will be judged by Trina May Smith, an instructor in the art department at UW-Oshkosh.
