THELMA Member Spotlight

September 30, 2021 – November 13, 2021 all-day

Exhibition will be on display from September 30 – November 13, 2021


Notes from Shannon Kupfer, THELMA’s Curator

THELMA is proud to present the 2021 Member Spotlight exhibit, featuring the varied artwork from our own members! This exhibition welcomes art from all experience levels and brings them together into one diverse and unique show. With an opening reception on Thursday, September 30th from 6pm-8pm, members of the public can view the art and meet the artists behind it. The Member Spotlight allows us to show off the many talents of our THELMA members and provide a glimpse into the creativity that exists in Fond du Lac. THELMA’s mission is to enrich the community through the arts, and it is a special occasion when we can do so with artwork from within the community itself!
