About the CUW Art Gallery

Over 30 years ago, the CUW Art Gallery was founded with the hope of educating, challenging, and inspiring the students, faculty, staff, and community of CUW as well as the public through exposure to the vast world of art. Our mission is to encourage appreciation and understanding of art and its role in society through direct engagement with original works of art. Combining fresh, object-based scholarship with broad accessibility, the CUW Art Gallery aims to provoke and affirm accepted meanings of art objects and to suggest new ones to its patrons. We aspire to excite the imagination, and present opportunities for our patrons to look into the study of art and culture.

The goals of the CUW Art Gallery are to:

  • Bring excellent contemporary and historical art to the CUW campus community
  • Reflect the diversity of the university and Southeastern Wisconsin community
  • Connect the university and the public through relevant art and cultural programs
  • Support student, emerging and established artists by providing opportunities for the creation and exhibition of cutting edge visual art
  • Development of self-knowledge inherent in artistic activity for the personal growth and development of the CUW Gallery students, faculty, staff and patrons

Last fall, Facebook newsfeeds were flooded with yet another bandwagon movement. The “Black and White Photo Challenge” asked social media users to post black and white photos reflecting their life for seven days, with no description whatsoever. As an avid lover of photography, this was one Facebook challenge that intrigued me. So, for the next several days, I used my phone to take black and white photos during my ordinary, daily routines. However, I didn’t stop at seven photos.

Over the next year, I found myself shooting everyday scenes with nothing but my iPhone to aide me. What you see today is the end result – a collection of moments captured from infinite time, never to be experienced again, except through these photographs.

Just as time moves toward forever, this remains my ongoing venture. Pausing to capture these moments, this collection now contains over fifty works with infinity to go.
