This Weekend at Wyoming Valley School Cultural Arts Center

3 Photographers
Friday, October 18 — Sunday, Oct 20
10 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day

Two local photographers are showing for the first time at the school: Ralph Knasinski and Hans Schaal. Knasinski is a Wisconsin native and retired Beloit College Professor of Art; he taught sculpture, painting and drawing and started the first digital media studio art classes at the college in 1990; he has exhibited nationally and in Canada and Mexico.  Knasinski’s work features abstracted landscape and architecture images as well as more traditional images.

Hans Schaal taught filmmaking for 34 years at the University of Illinois-Chicago. After his retirement and move to the Dodgeville/Spring Green area, his camera became focused on the surrounding beauty of the area in mostly landscape photos. Schaal has exhibited his work throughout the US, Scotland, England and Switzerland.

A third photographer, Ellis Pifer of Spring Green, will again participate in the exhibit featuring new images of the natural world in the River Valley area.

Each of these three photographers brings something unique to the show – we know you will enjoy seeing their work and meeting the artists. Refreshments will be served throughout the day. The Wyoming Valley School Cultural Arts Center is located at 6306 State Highway 23, between Dodgeville and Spring Green; it is the only elementary school in the U.S. designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
