14 Frames Gallery

CUW 14 Frames GalleryConcordia’s newest gallery, which opened in the fall of 2018, challenges selected artists to tell their story using a maximum of 14 images. This semester, it features the work of interior architecture and design student Sophia Asmus:

“My intent has always been to work passionately every day. Thus the reason I chose to pursue a career in Interior Design. In each project, I strive to create appealing & functional solutions for even the most difficult spaces. Ultimately my goal is to satisfy the requests of my clients and produce a beautiful space.”

Location: Near R124

Student Gallery

Student GalleryThis semester’s student gallery showcases the Senior Exhibit of interior architecture and design student Alexandria Krider:

“Art is something that I have always been passionate about and I wanted to be able to translate that into my everyday life. This is what led me to Interior Architecture & Design. There is so much more than goes into design other than what “looks pretty”; colors invoke different moods and feelings, and the placement of things defines the way one lives and moves in a space. In each project, I am to create a space custom to the user where form follows the function.”

Location: Between Loeber and Rincker Halls, 1st Floor

Loeber Hall Gallery

Loeber Hall GalleryThe work of illustration major Annie Marie Oslowski shines in this colorful display.

“Throughout elementary school I remember my teachers passing out homework that would soon have doodles and drawings all over them. It was evident at a young age that I would become an artist in some shape or form. These homework doodles soon became sketches, where I found myself drawing on the living room floor for hours, and I was hooked! As a senior in college, I have found a love for working with pencil, charcoal, and pastel/colored pencils in photorealism. I am an aspiring Medical Illustrator, focusing on my two passions of science and art.”

Location: Outside LO110/112

The Cases

CUW Handmade Dolls Peggy OberbeckThis exhibit, titled “Oh, You Beautiful Doll,” showcases a collection of impeccably detailed handmade dolls crafted by Peggy Oberbeck, secretary of the Doll Scholars of Southeast Wisconsin.

“My love of history, antiques and sewing hooked me into this new world of dolls and costume making. I learned how to clean, fire and paint the porcelain heads. Then the fun began when I saw how beautiful the antique reproduction clothing was! There were patterns to follow by doll artists, but I soon found pictures of beautiful antique dolls. Of course I had to duplicate those clothes and teach other people to sew too!”
