During the months of April and May, Andrea Jauquet and Nancy Sargent will exhibit their paintings at the Unitarian Universalist Gallery in Ephraim. There will be a reception open to the public on April 29 from 4 – 6 pm. Refreshments will be served.
Natives of Fish Creek, Jauquet and Sargent attended Gibraltar High School and both earned degrees in Art Education at Cardinal Stritch College in Milwaukee. Both taught art, Jauquet in the Green Bay school system and Sargent in the Gibraltar school system, and have now retired in Fish Creek.
Although their paths are similar, their painting style and subject matter differs. Jauquet is presently working in oil and Sargent in acrylic.
Jauquet will be showing her “Two Sisters” exhibit – featuring new contemporary paintings in oil. “I like creating atmospheres and ambiguity,” said Jauquet, “allowing space for the viewer to imagine.”
Sargent will exhibit primarily floral paintings. “Freedom of color exploration, and organic contrasted with geometric shape in line is what truly excited me,” she said. She exhibits at the Sister Bay Trading Company and at her “Bluff House Studio” in Fish Creek, where Jauquet’s work is also on display.
The exhibit will open on April 1. The UU Gallery is located at 10341 Highway 42 in Ephraim. Gallery hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1 – 3 pm and on Sunday from 11 am – 12:30 pm. For more information call 920.854.7559 or visit http://www.uufdc.org.
