Of Eau Claire: Virtual Art Show Features Notable Locals
media ranges from acrylic, photography, water color, and ink, to intaglio print, sculpture, and urban logs
Eleven unique works of art selected from the Laurie Bieze Permanent Art Collection make up “Of Eau Claire,” a virtual exhibit now online at the Pablo Center at the Confluence.
“Of Eau Claire” is a special exhibit, according to Pablo’s art curator Rose Dolan-Neill, because it highlights two works of art donated by the family of the late Dan Clumpner. Clumpner – a civil engineer, who was principal and co-owner of Commonweal Development Corporation, president of Keystone Corporation, and co-manager of Haymarket Concepts, LLC – was the construction lead on the Pablo.
He died just as the Pablo was about to open its doors.
“Clumpner collaborated with raku potter and sculptor Mel Sundy to create a stunning raku-glazed bowl, indicative of the original watercolor concept sketch of the Pablo created by its architect Malcolm Holzman,” Dolan-Neill said.
Other art in the exhibit include two stained glass pieces by artists Laurie Bieze (titled “The Eagle”) and Michael Pilla (titled “The First Treasure”).
Other local artists are featured using media ranging from acrylic, photography, water color, and ink, to intaglio print, sculpture, and urban logs.
