Call for Art Educators to exhibit work

Life & Style Feature
By UW-Marshfield/Wood County

Viewing or creating artwork is a great way to celebrate.  The University of Wisconsin-Marshfield/Wood County is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2014-2015.  To mark the occasion, it would like recognize and celebrate all the amazing and talented art educators in Central Wisconsin.

UW-Marshfield/Wood County’s Art Department is sponsoring the Central Wisconsin Art Educators’ Exhibit September 15 to October 31, 2014.   All art educators teaching within a 35 mile radius of Marshfield are invited to exhibit a piece of artwork in Gallery 450.  Work in all media will be displayed as space allows.

All work must be original in concept and execution.   2-D work such as paintings, drawings, prints should be ready for hanging and no larger than approximately 3x5 feet. There are a limited number of Plexiglas covered pedestals and display cases for smaller 3-D work in ceramics, metals and sculpture.  We regret we do not have space for large sculptural pieces or instillations.           

Please indicate your intent to exhibit by July 11 by contacting Professor Kitty Kingston, UW Colleges Art Department Chair at 715-387-6582 or or Susan Wendlandt, Gallery 450 Director at 715-897-4478 or

Delivery dates for artwork are August 25 through September 3.

These educators’ art will be on display to recognize their talent, but they will also be used to teach students. UW-Marshfield/Wood County, as well as elementary and secondary school art students, continuously use the displays for reference and study.

Gallery 450 is located in the lobby of the Helen Connor Laird Fine Arts Building.  It is free and open to the public weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and during most theatre and music performances.

We look forward to celebrating the work and contributions made by the art educators of Central Wisconsin.  Visit our Visual Arts page to learn more.  


Sue Wendlandt is the Gallery 450 Director at University of Wisconsin-Marshfield/Wood County, your local University of Wisconsin campus.
