"Tooned in: The political art of Phil Hands"

"Tooned in: The political art of Phil Hands"

Gallery 1308, Union South
August 4 - September 22, 2017

Come explore WUD Art Committee's newest installation coming soon to Union South's Gallery 1308! 

"Tooned in: The political art of Phil Hands" shows the Wisconsin State Journal artist's work in the Union South gallery.

Phil Hands' interest in political art is described as such: "Since cavemen scrawled on walls, people have been using drawings to satirize the world around them. Political cartoons compress complex ideas, and point out hypocrisy with humor. In a political era ripe for satire, there’s never been a better time to learn about the art of the cartoon."

Opening reception is on August 4th from 6-7 pm.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Exhibition then open daily from 7am-10pm until September 22nd.


"Unsound Methods" Exhibition by Daniel Atyim

"Unsound Methods" Exhibition by Daniel Atyim

Class of 1925 Gallery, Memorial Union
August 11 - September 15, 2017

Come and check out a new art exhibition from the WUD Art Committee coming soon to the Class of 1925 Gallery in Memorial Union! 

This exhibition includes recent oil paintings by Daniel Atyim. An artist seduced by color, his latest work highlights the textural properties of oil paint. The resulting topography of paint interacts with the underlying surface, clarifying or obscuring your shifting perception of the forms represented. The images suggest reconfigured human fragments, the natural world and forgotten spaces. 

Opening reception is on August 11th from 6-7 pm.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Exhibition then open daily from 7am-10pm until September 15th.


'Modern Faces' Exhibition by Rirostro

'Modern Faces' Exhibition by Rirostro

 Gallery 1308, Union South
June 9 - July 21, 2017

Come check out WUD Art Committee's latest installation in Union South's Gallery 1308! 

Rirostro's Modern Faces is a collection of modern portraits created between 2009 and 2017. Faces and heads are often the primary subjects in his art.

The artist describes his work as such: "While sometimes described as 'cartoonish,' I like to think of the cartoon faces as a little more serious. The subjects within these paintings come from my everyday surroundings and through my life experiences, filtered through film, art, music, and art history. They are subjects we often see represented in a way that allows the pieces to raise more questions than answers. My work is my way of coming to terms with the lack of reasons in our lives, and the path to embracing that realization."

Opening reception is on June 9th from 6-7 pm.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Come check out WUD Art Committee's latest installation in Memorial Union's Class of 1925 Gallery! 

Nancy Rich’s exhibit highlights the rugged and beautiful rowboats that serve New England lobstermen and women...ferrying them to and from their larger craft moored offshore.  Other images portray elegant “sea sculptures” found along the northern reaches of the Atlantic Ocean, and a third collection shares the whimsy of objects floating in liquid or frozen in ice.

Light refreshments will be provided.
