Paintings based on vintage postcard scenes

The University of Wisconsin Sheboygan invites the community to visit the Fine Arts Gallery on campus for the latest art exhibition, featuring paintings by local Sheboygan artist Rubén Vega. Some of the artwork is based on original postcard images of historic Sheboygan scenes.

A special opening reception takes place on Friday, Dec. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. The show runs through Jan. 20, 2018.

Rubén Vega, a native of Mexico City, has traveled extensively throughout Canada, the United States, and Mexico, painting the beauty he finds there - whether in cityscapes, seascapes, or landscapes.

His love of architecture began when he entered the School of Architecture at the University in Mexico City, but it evolved into a passion for painting with watercolor, a medium whose transparency and light provide the ideal conditions for his themes. "Everything has its own beauty, and anything is worthy of being painted. The artist must interpret what Nature and man have created and then present it so that others may see it, too," Vega said.

UW-Sheboygan’s Fine Arts Gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The campus is located at One University Drive in Sheboygan. For more information about the show or UW-Sheboygan's Fine Arts Gallery, contact Gallery Director Dan Smith at dan.

The campus, part of the University of Wisconsin System, offers freshman and sophomore level classes in over 250 majors. Small classes taught by experienced faculty provide a high-quality learning environment for area students, who are often able to live at home while attending college.
