Ancient media adapted to new works in UW-S gallery exhibit

Area residents are invited to visit the University of Wisconsin Sheboygan Fine Arts Gallery for its latest art exhibit "Remix: Praxis & Juncture" by Sheboygan artist, Peg Haubert. Her work is on display now through the month of August. An opening reception takes place on Friday, July 14, from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery.

Haubert now works as a full time artist and volunteers for the Sheboygan Visual Artists as marketing/communications director.

Haubert’s work was equally influenced by Artist James Prohl, a known traditional realist teaching classes in his Milwaukee studio, and Kenn Kwint, also a known Milwaukee based fine artist with a unique approach to making art. The two completely different approaches to making art has enriched Haubert’s life and artwork.

She maintains that it is highly beneficial to study various techniques and art styles before coming into your own unique form of expression. Influences from both schools of thought are evident in her work. Haubert’s work explores myth, symbols, glyphs, world events, poetry, and scientific discoveries delivered via geometric forms, etching, burnishing and paint. A wide variety of media are used often taking on the look and feel of ancient artifacts. “I find it challenging to be adding encaustic to my mix of media. Encaustic is one of the oldest media as it was discovered over 2000 years ago and is now making a comeback,” said Haubert. “It is one of the most playful media I’ve worked with to date and fits perfectly with the often times ancient look of my work.” Haubert teaches encaustic workshops at Lakeshore Art Supplies and in studio at 913 Indiana Ave.

The exhibit will remain on view thru Aug. 30. UW-Sheboygan is located at One University Drive in Sheboygan. Free parking is available. For more information, visit www.sheboygan.uwc.edu.
