54 Years as a Painter

"To the young, 54 years seems an eternity. For those of us closer to the end of the journey, it’s a mere moment. My experience of painting has seldom been continuous – there have been interruptions – sometimes quite lengthy ones – when the cares of life took precedence over putting paint on canvas – but painting has persistently returned" - Dr. Gaylund K. Stone

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
