2017 Membership Exhibition is Open
An annual tradition that has become a favorite at THELMA, is an opportunity for area artists to show their work in the Susan O. Ahern Contemporary Wing. The exhibit will be held May 25 through September 9. An opening reception will be held Thursday, May 25 from 6 to 8 pm.
Submissions are open to all Friends of THELMA, members of Fond du Lac Visual Arts, Fond du Lac Artists Association, Open Door Artists, and Sheboygan Visual Artists (at time of registration). The exhibit was juried by Milwaukee-based artist and University of Milwaukee lecturer Shane Walsh.
The following artists will be featured: Patty Aker, Aileen Andrews, Colleen Chertos, David DeMarco, Tom Dent, Nancy Donahue, Kathryn Dreifuerst, Tom Ferguson, Sharon Garrison, Jeanne Gilbert, Evie Grasse, Raymond Hagerman, Peg Haubert, Sue Hoehnen, Shirley Jansen, Amy Jarvis, Kay Jelinek, Dale Knaak, Stephanie McGuire, Roxine McQuitty, Tony Mertens, Della Nohl, Pat Reiher, Karen Robison, Cheryl Schommer, Tessa Traxinger, Donald Urness, Eileen Urness, Mary Wehner, Wanda Yuhas-Weller, and Megan Zagar.
The Susan O’ Ahern Contemporary Wing is free to the public, thanks to the generosity of Horicon Bank. Horicon Bank has a tradition steeped in art and shares the belief that art should be accessible to all.
The gallery is open from 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, from 11 am to 3 pm Saturdays and Sundays and during events. Check THELMA’s website for any changes in the hours due to private events.
