Art Professor's Works Selected for 2 Major Shows
Harry Wirth, Professor in the NIU School of Art, has recently had two of his watercolor paintings selected for major shows.
"Verge" was selected as one of 60 works (from among over 400 entrants) to appear in the upcoming exhibition entitled "Forward: A Survey of Wisconsin Art 2012," which will be on display at the Charles Allis Museum of Art in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from March 2 through June 3, with the opening reception scheduled for Friday, March 2, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Harry's work "Awakening" was also recently selected by a jury to be included in the exhibition "Watercolor Wisconsin" at the Wustum Museum of Art in Racine, Wisconsin. The exhibition runs now through April.
Both paintings are among the many that Harry created during his sabbatical of 2011/2012. Congratulations, Harry!
