UW FDL Art Momentum Show

The UW-Fond du Lac Art Students League will present the annual Art Momentum show and sale, 5-7 p.m. on Friday, May 5, in the Visual Arts Gallery (A-125), 400 University Dr. The event is free and open to the public.

A brief program begins at 6 p.m. with the announcement of the annual scholarship winner and presentation of first, second and third place prizes by this year’s guest judge Lora Vahlsing.

Art Momentum is a student-run, organized and juried art event. The evening will feature student art work on display and available for purchase. Light refreshments will be served.

UW-Fond du Lac students who participate in the Art Momentum show commit to donating half of the proceeds from each item sold to support an art student scholarship fund through the UW-Fond du Lac Foundation.

Continuing from last year, a selection of donated art and craft items from local artists will be available for purchase with 100 percent of the proceeds from these items supporting the scholarship fund.

For most of the students, this is their first experience showing work, having it judged and offering it for sale. A mixture of drawings, paintings and three dimensional work will be available for purchase.

“The students have been carefully selecting work for this event for several months,” said Wendi Turchan, art lecturer. “Art Momentum is a wonderful opportunity to show our support for the work done this year by the art students at UW-Fond du Lac.”

A special preview of artwork that will be available for sale at Art Momentum will be on display through May 2 at the Gallery & Frame Shop, 94 S. Main St., Fond du Lac.
