Promega Art Showcase

Read the review from The Isthmus on the Spring Art Showcase

The Current Exhibit:

Exhibit dates: March 19, 2019 - June 7, 2019
The Promega Spring Art Showcase presents ‘Evocative Mechanisms of Art’ , featuring Cherie St. Cyr, Peter Eglington and Steve Feren.

Much like a musical call-and-response, we respond to visual arts initially through what we find familiar and this lights a pathway that allows us to explore the unknown. Newly-known impressions become suddenly familiar, leading us to yet other unknowns. The cycle continues, guiding us deeper and deeper into our shared consciousness. The artwork in this showcase is meant to evoke such meaningful responses, and will include vibrant glass sculptures, hand-dyed textiles and mystical paintings.

The Upcoming Exhibit:

Exhibit dates: June 11, 2019 - September 1, 2019
The Promega Summer Art Showcase presents ‘Studying History, Designing the Future’, featuring works inspired by The Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection in the School of Human Ecology at UW-Madison.
Originating in the study collection that Helen Louise Allen, Professor of Weaving from 1927 to 1968, amassed to teach her students about textile techniques and the global cultures that practiced them, this collection has grown to over 13,000 pieces and continues to support the curriculum across numerous disciplines. This group exhibit will demonstrate the ways that this unique resource serves as a point of inspiration for a broad range of student endeavors, and will include students' creative responses to designs and techniques found in the Textile Collection.

A symposium will be held on Tuesday, June 11th with the artists at 3:30 pm followed by the Exhibit Opening Reception from 4:30–6:30 pm.
