Currently showing: Art for Art Auction

In this “Antique Road Show”-like event, Concordia will auction off approximately 45 items ranging from vintage furniture to antique pottery and rare paintings. Community members are invited to attend the event and place silent bids from April 2 to April 9. The bidding period officially closes at 8 p.m. April 9, and the winners will be notified on April 10.

Proceeds from the auction will go towards supporting students in Concordia’s arts programs.

This is the perfect event for the antiquing community or anyone who has an appreciation for beautiful, quality items,” says Dr. Theresa Kenney, professor of art. “Not only could you walk away with a one-of-a-kind collectible, you’ll support arts students’ education in the process.

Items are in the process of being appraised. Their appraised value will be advertised at the auction.

The auction will take place in the CUW Art Gallery on Concordia’s Mequon campus, 12800 N. Lake Shore Drive, Mequon.

Hours are

  • 4-8 p.m. April 2-5
  • Noon-4 p.m. April 6 and 8
  • 4-8 p.m. April 9
  • The gallery and auction are closed on Saturday, April 7

Items must be picked up on April 10 between 4 and 8 p.m. CUW students will be on hand to help load items at this time.

Coming soon: CUW Art Majors 2018 Senior Show

The 2018 graduating class of CUW Art Majors are putting their work on display and invite you to the grand opening of their Senior Show. Their works include graphic design, illustration, animation, photography, and architecture. There will opportunities to meet with each student and snacks to go along with the celebration of the progress these students have made.

The Senior Show event is called “The Positive in Negative Space.” This is in reference to the art concept of negative space, which is the space around and between the subject(s) of an image. In this instance, the negative space in the title of the show is all about the space between the artwork, the gallery walls, and the positive space is in reference to the artwork. The negative space in the gallery is something these students are all sharing around the artwork. The negative space is bringing this group together in a positive way. That’s why it is “The Positive in Negative Space.”

With that, the Art Majors of the graduating class of 2018 would love to see you at the opening night on May 3rd. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

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
