Sheboygan, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Sheboygan Campus Fine Arts Gallery, located in the campus Fine Arts Building, invites the community to view its latest art exhibit, “Process ART Pur Sang: Artwork by Chrisje Sanders.” There will be a special artist reception on Friday, Nov. 8, 2019 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibition will run from Nov. 8 through Nov. 29, 2019.
Born in 1957 in the Netherlands, Sanders received a Bachelors in Science, Communication and Arts, Journalism and she has worked as a journalist, editor-in-chief and event organizer. She emigrated to the U.S. in 2006. Sanders has been a full-time, process-based artist for the last five years. Currently, Sanders is the president and artist member of Sheboygan Visual Artists, artist member of Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts Fond du Lac, artist member of the Lakeshore Artist Guild Manitowoc and artist member of the Port Washington Saukville Arts Council.
Sanders’ works unearth the connection with the natural environment and artificial interference with it. She creates art that critically looks at societal structures and systems of injustice. Sanders states, “This process is motivated by intentionality to create works that are cognizant of the reality we live in and driven by my passion to bring awareness to my community and change to society.
“My personal experiences, my love for humanity and nature and my hope for world peace is reflected in my art practice,” states Sanders. “We should all take action in contributing to a more equal and just world and celebrate its already existing natural beauty.”
The opening reception is free and open to the public.
The Fine Arts Gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information about the show or the UW-Green Bay, Sheboygan Campus Fine Arts Gallery, please contact Gallery Director Dan Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
