MILWAUKEE (Aug. 13, 2018) – Nine artists whose work spans ceramics, fibers, glasswork, jewelry, painting and more have been chosen to represent the scope of the 2018 Starving Artists’ Show, held Sunday, Sept, 9 at Mount Mary University.

The 2018 featured artists include:

  • Char TerBeest-Kudla (Baraboo, Wis.) sews bags that range from basic, utilitarian to what she calls “fancy schmancy,” which display her sewing and design skills.
  • Daniel Lager (St. Paul, Minn.) loves exploring patterns and colors from nature in his paintings. He paints each piece in reserve on glass with acrylic paint.
  • Deb Radke (Franksville, Wis.) creates whimsical flower, butterfly and abstract wall sculptures. She works exclusively with copper because she likes its soft properties and brilliant color.
  • Jean Johnson (Germantown, Wis.) enjoys being able to take natural fibers and weave them into a basket in a day. All of her baskets are made from reed. Her inspiration for color comes from her vintage Fiesta plate collection.
  • Mary Hager (Adell, Wis.) enjoys figuring out how to recreate creatures from nature in wire, paper and fabric. She begins each creature by making an accurate representation of its form and then embellishes it with bright, fun colors.
  • Paul Jeselskis (Michigan City, Ind.) builds vases, urns and jars out of porcelain on the potter’s wheel. All of his pieces are decorative, functional, colorful and pleasing to the eye.
  • Paula Sparks (Madison, Wis.) layers colorful, organic shapes within enamel, sometimes adding gemstones, to create necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets. She describes her pieces as tiny enamel paintings.
  • Sharon Fujimoto (Amherst Junction, Wis.) blows functional, decorative, classic forms out of glass. Her inspiration comes from nature, dreams, travel, films and more.
  • Stan Piepenburg (Wauwatosa, Wis.) draws with ink using brushes and pens. All of his drawings are inspired by the serenity of nature, especially trees in winter.

The Starving Artists’ Show, sponsored by the Mount Mary Alumnae Association, will be held Sunday, Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the grounds of Mount Mary University. All artwork sold is original and priced for $100 or less. Admission is $10 and supports student scholarships. For more information, visit mtmary.edu/sas.
