Whitewater Arts Alliance seeking internationally-born artists for exhibit
WHITEWATER Original art by people who were born outside the United States but currently live or work in Whitewater will be on display at the Global Whitewater exhibit at the Whitewater Arts Alliance’s Cultural Arts Center from February 1 to 24, 2013. The exhibit will be open Thursdays through Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. and is free to visitors wishing to enjoy art by a culturally-diverse group. There will be an opening reception on February 2 and a closing reception on February 24.
Artists who were born outside the USA, reside or work in Whitewater and have original art to share may submit up to five pieces for the exhibit. The artwork may or may not reflect the national culture of the artists. Artists are being invited to submit in a variety of media: painting, photography, metals, fabrics, etc. Artists interested in submitting their work should please contact Katherine Conover at email@example.com or (262) 473-3702.
“We thought it would be interesting and informative for people in the community to get a sense of the cultural diversity in our community. We are fortunate to have residents who come from a variety of cultures who enrich our community. This exhibit is a chance to visually represent some of those cultures,” said Conover, chair of the exhibit and member of the Whitewater Arts Alliance board of directors.
Artists currently planning to exhibit include Enrique Esquipula, from Mexico, Zhang Ziaohong from China and Neta Ron from Israel.
The Cultural Arts Center is located on 402 West Main Street in the historic White building near the Birge Fountain. Parking is behind the building. An elevator is available for access from the parking lot entrance.
