Art Gallery Opening at University of Wisconsin- Whitewater - 12.10.2018

From: 05:00PM to 12:19AM

I'm having a gallery show open up on Monday, December 10th in the Arts building of the University of Wisconsin- Whitewater.  Has to do with my better-late-than-never college graduation.  Long story.  But, if you're in town, the opening is Monday from 5-7 pm.

I left school in 1995 to pursue an art career.  As I'm still working on making that happen, this year I decided to finish up my remaining very few credits and finally graduate!

If you're anywhere in the Midwest, please stop in and say Hi.  I'll have a number pieces up from a few facets of my career.  Books, Mad magazine, this and that, as well as my very first oil paintings, done for the independent study I did which made this possible.

Here's a brief write up of the opening in Milwaukee's Shepard Express: https://shepherdexpress.com/events/student-shows-in-crossman-gallery-end-semester/

Location:

UW-Whitewater College of Arts and Communications: 950 W. Main St., City of Whitewater, Wisconsin 53190
Whitewater, Midwest
