"The Pinhole Thing" Exhibition by Cameron Gillie

"The Pinhole Thing" Exhibition by Cameron Gillie

Class of 1925 Gallery, Memorial Union 
September 29th - October 27th, 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 photography by Cameron Gillie, titled "The Pinhole Thing." This exhibition brings simplicity back to photography, with works that are created "with a camera that is nothing more than a light-tight box with a tiny hole that projects an image on film." As digital photography becomes more popular, Gillie brings us back to the oldest form of photography - by using the challenging pinhole.

Opening reception is on Friday, September 29th from 6-8 pm.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Exhibition then open daily from 7am-10pm until October 27th.


"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.
