Chippewa Valley Artists engage viewers through form, color, sound, and shadow
Eau Claire, Wisconsin — The Chippewa Valley Museum has partnered with Empty Walls Art and invited artists for a winter art show in the museum’s Ayres Associates Gallery. Dimensions and Discovery now showing through April 8, 2023. Whether hanging on the wall or perched on a pedestal, the works you'll see in the gallery are anything but flat
Tuesday, January 31 an Artists Reception will take place from 6-7:30 pm at the Chippewa Valley Museum. Guest Christy Skuban will offer a reflection about the show and attendees will have a chance to meet the featured artists.
A series of three Art Talks will be part of this exhibit. On Saturday, February 18 from 1:30-3 pm, visitors can meet artist Don Gaber. They can learn about his art, tour the gallery with him to view examples of his sculptures on display, and work with reclaimed parts to create new art.
Tuesday evening, March 7 from 6-7:30 pm, program attendees will hear about the creative processes of artists Kelsey M. Wenberg, Scott Von Holzen, and Ray Kaselau. A walk through the gallery will give the artists time to share details about their work on display, followed by an activity for attendees to experience making their own creations.
Saturday, March 18 from 1:30-3 pm, an Art Talk will feature Christy Skuban and Aubrey Hogan. Both artists will discuss their art and the innovative procedures they use, followed by a gallery tour, and an artist demonstration on building abstract wall constructions.
