“The Butterfly,” oil on linen, by Mara Pionek

New owner and Executive Director Molly Johnson along with Artistic Director Craig Blietz are proud to present New Works by the Students of the Kewaunee Academy of Fine Arts at the UU Gallery in Ephraim. The public is invited to view the exhibit and celebrate with these emerging artists at the Opening Reception from 4 – 7 pm on September 30. The exhibit will be featured in the UU Gallery for the month of October.

Under the direction of renowned artist Blietz, the Kewaunee Academy, located in Algoma, features an intensive curriculum devoted to drawing, painting, and sculpting. In preparation for careers as practicing artists, the students are taught the classical techniques and methods introduced before the Renaissance and perfected by the masters.

Throughout their course of study, students are assessed on their individual progress. The curriculum is designed primarily to heighten a student’s visual skills and acuity. In addition, through the efforts made by the students to achieve successful completion in each exercise, the student becomes accomplished in the use of charcoal, oil paint, watercolor, and sculpture.
