Over 30 pieces of artwork created at the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) Artisan and Business Center will be showcased at the Neville Public Museum this spring.
 
The exhibition titled, Apposite Media: A Remix of the System, features pieces created by Artisan Center instructors and students, including work by the East High Fine Arts Institute and Homeschool Art Program students. It begins March 16 and runs through June 2, 2019.

The show is a mix of media which highlights the multiple studio experience provided at the NWTC Artisan and Business Center. All artwork in the exhibit incorporates at least of two studio concepts. The Artisan Center offers studio space in woodturning, painting, drawing, ceramics, fused glass, textiles and art metals. 
 
“The concept behind ‘Apposite Media’ is to encourage artisans to go outside of their comfort zone and express themselves in a way that utilizes multiple media and studio approaches, all while completing a cohesive work of art,” NWTC Artisan and Business Center Artistic Design Coordinator Jason Keller said.
 
The word “Apposite” is used to describe something that is very appropriate for something else—a notion suggested by the close proximity of two objects.
 
To ‘remix the system’ is individual to each artisan, as their interpretation of what the system is varied from person to person,” Keller said.
 
“The inspiration for [my} piece came from a set of topiary tree images I came across. The most challenging part of the process was working with glass, which is a completely new medium for me.” Daniela Kouzov, NWTC Artisan and Business Center student.
 
The public is invited to see the exhibit and meet the artists at an opening reception on Tuesday, March 19. Door open at 5:30 p.m. with the reception beginning at 6:00 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.
