One of the ways Waupun Fine Arts is supporting the arts this summer is by featuring the talents of three Waupun area college students in the Waupun Fine Art Gallery on the second level of the Waupun Public Library. The show runs through the month of July and the public is invited to the closing reception on Wednesday, July 27th from 5-7 PM.
Two of the featured college students are sharing their passion for photography with a variety of subject matter and one student shares her talent for illustration and her passion for piano and her favorite composer.
Craig Vander Galien from the Randolph area, is a former graduate of CWC and attends Trinity College in Palos Heights, Ill. Even though his major is not in the arts Craig has a passion and talent for capturing his subjects at just the right angle and in just the right lighting. He uses his camera at incredible heights to capture many unusual images of city the Chicago.
Kathryn Coraggio is formerly from the Beaver Dam area, is a graduate of CWC and attends Winona University in Winnona, Minnesota . Kathryn is a former recipient of the Beaver Dam Area Art Association’s Bertha Proctor purchase award for a photograph that she took in the Horicon Marsh. The purchase award photo is in a traveling exhibit and just also happens to be on display right now on the lower level of the Waupun Library.
Hannah Dykstra is from Beaver Dam, is a former graduate of CWC and just graduated this spring with a degree in Art Education from Trinity College in Palos Heights, Ill. Hannah’s senior exhibit featured her graphic novel about a Russian composer, Dmitri Shostakovich who she took an interest in while studying piano, another of Hannah’s passions. Copies of her graphic novel are on display in the gallery and for sale at the library desk. Hannah also provides a link to her blog page in which she shares more of her graphic journey with the composer and his music.
