University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Department of Art Professor Andrew Redington and alumnus Tom Berenz will be featured as part of the Fond du Lac-based Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) exhibit “45 North: THELMA Summer Invitational,” opening Aug. 21.
The exhibit will feature some of Wisconsin’s most prominent artists and opens with an August 21, free reception from 6 p.m. to 8 pm. The two-level exhibit, curated by Shane McAdams, features 45 pieces from 18 different artists. McAdams, an adjunct professor at Marian University, has a studio in New York.
“This thrilling new exhibit will bridge the gap between the Fond du Lac art scene and those in Milwaukee and other areas of the state,” said Kevin Miller, THELMA’s executive director.
Redington’s and Berenz’s exhibit works are joined by those of Peter Barrickman, Kimberly Benson, Derrick Buisch, Willy Carpenter, Michael Davidson, Breehan James, Frank Juarez, Greg Klassen, Kay Knight, Keith Nelson, James Pederson, Rafael Salas, Lynn Tomaszewski, Jason Vaughn, Shane Walsh, and Scott Zieher.
The exhibit runs through Sunday, September 21.
