Each year, a juror selects four outstanding artists from the Annual Members Show to exhibit individually in their own Featured Member Exhibition. Each exhibition opens on Gallery Night and runs for about 10 weeks.
This year’s juror is Josie Osborne, visual artist, educator and director of the First Year Program in Art and Design at UWM’s Peck School of the Arts (more about Josie here). The 2015-16 Featured Member Artists were announced during the opening reception of the Annual Members Show on Friday, September 4.
