Laura Schneider and Juliane Troicki: Illuminating Women
Feb 20 @ 10:00 am – Mar 28 @ 5:00 pm

Exhibition will be on display from February 20, 2020 – March 28, 2020

Illuminating Women: An art collaboration by Laura Schneider and Juliane Troicki

Illuminating Women is a collaboration of journalism and documentary photography. The project combines portraits of 30 inspiring women from the Fond du Lac community represented through black and white photography and biographical narratives. Laura and Juliane created this project to shine a light on exceptional women and their gifts to the community. Laura and Juliane hope that the Illuminating Women Project will move the Fond du Lac community to be inspired by their stories.

Juliane and Laura are very grateful to Agnesian Healthcare, a member of SSM Health for their generous sponsorship and for making this project possible.

 

Laura Schneider was born in Wisconsin.. At an early age, Laura recognized she had something different to offer the world. But, it wasn’t until recently that she realized what’s possible.

Laura is a Midwest-based artist who colors outside the lines of life. While earning her BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, her passion for photography was ignited in the darkroom.

For nearly two decades, Laura has been capturing subtleties that go overlooked by the casual observer. Her perceptive nature gives her work character and revealing depth. She leverages her senses and the natural qualities of her environment to leave inspired, relatable creations in her wake.

 

Juliane Troicki is a native of Berlin, Germany.

She has made Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, her home for the last six years. Juliane is a mother of four children. She cares deeply about her environment and has been a long-term community advocate and volunteer. Juliane holds a Ph.D. in political science and teaches classes at local colleges, currently at the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh. As an educator, she is passionate about teaching and learning, especially about women’s experiences and their role in the world. Juliane is excited to share what she has learned about the inspiring women in her community.

Sonora Winds
Mar 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

***This concert has been POSTPONED*** We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for understanding.

 

Sonora Winds is a Twin Cities-based woodwind group that performs actively and enjoys playing rarely-performed music for winds.

They formed in 2016 with the goal of bringing accessible, lesser-known music to audiences through transformative performance experiences. Sonora Winds wants their patrons to discover and re-discover works that are worth hearing, but got lost in the midst of standardized performance programs. The group embarked on a recording project supported in part by grants from the Polish American Institute of Minnesota, and the Twin Cities Polish Festival to bring to the forefront lesser-known and some never recorded chamber music by Polish composers. The project brought three different instrument combinations onto one recording. The CD has been released this fall 2019 by MSR Classics Discover label. Following the recording, the group concentrated on programming in different venues across Minnesota and Wisconsin. Recently, Sonora was a recipient of a Travel Grant from University of Minnesota to tour Texas. At the same time, the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council supported Sonora’s community engagement efforts through Arts Project Support Grant to create a chamber concert series in retirement communities across St. Paul. Sonora Winds have been invited to perform at Chamber Music America’s Conference 2020 in NYC.

Listening Party & The Oxleys
Mar 27 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
***This concert has been POSTPONED*** We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for understanding.
Two performances in ONE night! Listening Party will perform from 7 – 7:45 pm. The Oxleys perform at 8 pm!
Listening Party, a 2018 Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) nominee for Bluegrass/Americana, have found a place in the original music scene around the Midwest with their soulful stage presence and infectious melodies. The trio out of Milwaukee, WI present a fresh brand of Americana music that feeds from folk, classic rock, soul and bluegrass. Singer-songwriter Weston Mueller, a Northern Wisconsin native, leads the group with “every note full of expression and feeling” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). Complemented by multi-instrumentalists, Joshua Hester and Jacob Wood, each song paints a portrait of the groups varying musical backgrounds.
The Oxleys: Hailing from the lakeside city of Milwaukee, WI, The Oxleys formed in 2016 and have since left their footprints over much of Wisconsin. Fueled by their passion for performing and storytelling, The Oxleys are currently touring the Midwest full-time sharing their experience through their songs. The acoustic duo digs into their roots and breaks into the genres of Country and Americana.
