UW-River Falls senior students present art exhibition

March 4, 2015

UW-River Falls seniors Michael Czech, Emily Cheever, Lisa Marshall, and Julian Gelhaye will present their bachelor's of fine arts (BFA) degree exhibitions on March 9-23 in Gallery 101 of the Kleinpell Fine Arts building on campus.

On exhibit will be fiber weavings, paintings, drawn illustrations, photography, glass sculptural work and mixed media sculptures.

Czech of New Brighton, Minnesota, is a senior with a double major in fine arts and art education with emphasis in painting and drawing. He exhibits paintings and drawings with a focus on the lighter side of life, finding subjects in humor or whimsy.

Cheever of River Falls is a BFA candidate with an emphasis in photography and painting. Her photographs explore the unique, unpolished quirks of everyday English life. The artwork is an anthropological look at what it means to be English.

Marshall of New Richmond, Wisconsin, is a BFA candidate with emphasis in fibers and painting. She exhibits double-weave, woven-wall hangings that display complex compositions and color combinations. Also on exhibit are oil paintings on canvas that merge patterns in nature with patterns in weaving along with color theory.

Gelhaye of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota, is a BFA candidate with an emphasis in glass and ceramics. On exhibit are glass sculptures incorporating mixed media meant to create a sense of nostalgia and expose issues of childhood and education.

An exhibition reception will be held at 6-8 p.m. on Friday, March 13, in Gallery 101. The exhibit and reception are free and open to all.

Gallery hours are 1-8 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and 2-4 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call the UWRF art department at 715-425-3266.
