New exhibit celebrates 20 years of Wisconsin art

Wisconsin is rich with talented fine artists.

For the 20th consecutive year The Plymouth Arts Center and Gallery 110 North have announced the opening of Alive in the Arts...a juried exhibition. This event regularly attracts entries from all over the state. The works of 54 Wisconsin artists were selected by the Juror for this show. The exhibit opens to the public Friday, June 5 and will run through Aug. 7.

Juror Laura Fiser viewed 227 entries and has selected 84 pieces in a wide range of media for this exhibit. Fiser currently serves as Curator of Collections and Exhibitions for the Paine Art Center in Oshkosh. She manages the museum’s permanent collection and organizes a broad range of changing exhibits.

Fiser has brought to Oshkosh major traveling exhibitions of the work of Dale Chihuly, Ansel Adams, Henri Matisse, Norman Rockwell and Frederic Remington. Fiser holds a B.A. in art history from Davidson College, N.C., and a M.A. in art history from the University of Cincinnati with a concentration in 19th and 20th century art and museum management.

Prior to joining The Paine, Fiser served at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Ky., the curatorial and education departments of the Cincinnati Art Museum, the North Carolina Museum of Art and the Mint Museum of Art.

The public is invited to meet the artists at the opening reception from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 5. Live musical entertainment will be presented at 5 p.m. by Laurine Gajewski on hammered dulcimer and at 6:30 p.m. by Katie Christensen on piano. Awards will be presented at 6 p.m.

Presenting sponsors for this exhibit are Wisconsin Bank & Trust and 20/20 Visions, Dr. Sharon Roberts and Dr. Bradley Wicklund. This event takes place on the same weekend as the Northern Moraine Spring Art Tour, Friday and Saturday, June 5 and 6. Tour guides and information are available at the Plymouth Arts Center, host site for the tour.
