The coffee shop on the first floor of Murphy Library features the works of UW-L  Students. The exhibition, titled “Selections from the Painting Studio”, runs from October 25 till November 16. The art works were selected from Painting classes lead by professor Jennifer Williams Terpstra.

Terpstra explains the show:

“The work in this show was developed throughout various levels of painting. Students in the introductory level have been studying spatial illusion in interior and exterior environments and exploring the attributes of the medium of oil. Other primary concerns include design, light and shadow, and the role of color in creating a complete painting.”

The artist event and exhibition are a partnership with Murphy Library and the Art Department.
