Sauter will display his portrait paintings rendered in different media such as watercolor, multi-layered stencils and freehand spray paint. Wall will display a collection of paintings on saw blades that express the disasters and pleasures that impact the environment and in return affect us.
Moelter, of Taylors Falls, Minn., majors in painting and minors in ceramics. Her work embodies her struggles dealing with Chronic Lymes Disease and the relationships with those close to her. The body of work represents how easily someone can feel abandoned and discarded like paper products.
Sauter, from Roseville, Minn., majors in painting and minors in ceramics. His paintings show his process of working in different styles and mediums to achieve a variety of emotions. He wants each portrait to be powerful enough to have an impact on the viewer whether it be positive or negative.
Wall, from Eastman, Wis., majors in painting and minors in glass. She paints with acrylic and acid on the saw blades and incorporates actual branches, vines and weathered wood into her artwork. One of her main focuses is the importance of honeybees and she wants to convey the connections she sees between the cyclical nature of life and her experiences growing up on a farm.
An exhibition reception will be held from 6-9 p.m., on Friday, Nov. 15, in Gallery 101. The exhibit and event are free and open to the public. The art can be viewed during regular gallery hours from 10 a.m. – 8p.m. Monday-Friday and from 2 – 4 p.m. Sunday.
