  • Trompe l'oeil Paintings by Lee Budahl

    Date: 7/1/2015 at 7:00 am to 10:00 pm
    Cost: FREE!
    Location: Union South - Gallery 1308. 

    The paintings in this exhibit appear so naturalistic that they tempt the viewer to touch them. As such, the paintings are part of a tradition of trompe l'oeil (fool-the-eye) realism which began in ancient Rome and is still visible in places like computer screens as "shadows" at the edges of rectangular shapes. Although Dr. Budahl's paintings may deceive a viewer, the deception lasts only a fraction of a second, since the viewer knows rationally that the picture frame contains only a flat surface covered with paint. According to the artist, this brief unsureness about reality opens the possibility for a unique experience.

  • "Reflections" by Roberta Condon

    Date: 7/1/2015 at 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
    Cost: FREE!
    Location: Memorial Union - Lakefront on Langdon Gallery. 

    The artist states, "I am a Mother, Dog Walker, Painter, Gallery Owner, Long Distance Swimmer. While reflecting on the things I see around me I note the feeling, the smell, the reflections in the water. Returning to the studio, I paint with these impressions in mind. The show contains 14 pieces painted with the varied Wisconsin environment in my senses and psyche. My heart is so full when I view my surroundings, it aches."

  • "Safe in Sound" by Irineo Medina

    Date: 7/1/2015 at 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
    Cost: FREE!
    Location: Memorial Union - Porter Butts Gallery. 

    The artist states, "My abstract monotypes are about the creative process used to reach the finished product. My pieces originate from music, allowing my mind to wander and my hands to dance. This method allows me the freedom to dive deeper into the realm of abstract and subconscious creation."

  • "She Defines Herself" by Heather Brammeier

    Date: 7/1/2015 at 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
    Cost: FREE!
    Location: Memorial Union - Class of 1925 Gallery. 

    The artist states, "This exhibition examines the relevance of masterwork paintings. By focusing on the female figure and her relationship to the space, I am exploring identity and empowerment. The women in the portraits are all shown in a moment of introspection, and invented landscapes create metaphor for internal struggles."
