UW-S instructors exhibit personal creations

Tom Uebelherr and Rick Ponzio are familiar teachers at UW-Sheboygan. Since 2001, Tom has taught a variety of college art classes including drawing, sculpture, painting and photography. Rick, who has a M.A. from Bowling

Green State University, is a Senior Lecturer in Communications/ Theatre Arts at both the UW-Sheboygan and UW Washington County campuses.

Their creative work will be exhibited through April 29 in the campus art gallery. The exhibit is titled “Purely Conjecture – Observations, Reflections and Fanciful Delusions.”

Carved out of Minnesota Dolomitic limestone, one of Ponzio’s pieces is called "House Pet" and is a cross between a dog and a dinosaur with a 'happy to see you' smile. Another work titled "Visions of the Future" is hand carved from Indiana limestone. Ponzio explains that “it is an expression of an inner state rather than a portrait. Having a momentary glimpse at our internal projection of the future might result in such an image - or at least that's my purely conjectural rendering.” Uebelherr’s creativity is also in evidence with a sculpture titled, “Creations of an Ex-Smoker.” The unique eye-catching piece created with concrete, steel and lilac root, definitely sends a clear message about smoking.

The Fine Arts Gallery is open to the public, Monday- Thursday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The gallery is located inside the Fine Arts Building on the UW Sheboygan campus located at One University Drive in Sheboygan. It is open to the public and admission is free. For more information about the exhibition, please contact dan.smith@uwc.edu.
