Presenting for student artists is especially important since making art can be a very solitary act. The performance or exhibit allows artists to see what the public has to say about their work. Art is a visual communication after all and the dialogue inherent in communication is what the art exhibit experience is all about. Members of the public have received the exhibit with good comments and reviews. Since the Theatre is located in a public space frequented by many students have been afforded the opportunity to sell their works too. So far two pieces have sold. This is thrilling for any artist, but especially a student.
For Mr. Ben Lamp and I this was a great opportunity to gain a bit of publicity for the program we've worked to build at Pewaukee High School. We appreciated the chance to shine a spotlight on our talented students and on our own teaching as well.
If you haven't already visited the exhibit to stop by and check it out. Waukesha Civic Theatre is located at 264 West Main Street, Waukesha, WI 53186. The show will be on display through January 6th.
