Kruk Gallery Concludes K-12 Exhibit

Felicity Bosk -- The Stinger
Art created by local elementary and high school students was featured March 6 in Holden Fine Arts at UW-Superior. Almost 60 people attended the Kruk Gallery exhibit of the works of young Twin Ports artists. “I’m so glad to welcome you all here,” said Kathy Hubbard, who organizes Kruk Gallery art shows, including the K-12 exhibit during each of the past three years. The show is designed to highlight the talent of young people who may one day be art students at UWS. Parents were excited and proud to see their children have their work shown among the best in the Twin Ports. Art professor Gloria Eslinger helps make sure everything runs smoothly. “There are a lot of fun parts like putting everything up and coming up with ideas for the show,” Eslinger said. A few days before the show, art professors judged the works and on March 6 gave awards to students of different age groups. “I am just so impressed by what some of these kids can do,” said Fred Ogez, the brother-in-law of one of the students whose art was featured. The K-12 exhibit in unique in the number of people it attracts. Most shows in the Kruk gallery will bring in anywhere between five and 20 people; but with a show of this sort, not only the artists attend but their entire families as well. Children of all ages ran around Holden and the gallery. A large cake was available for attendees as well as many boxes of pizza, cookies, chips and soda pop.
