The artwork of Maggie Connors will be on display in the UW-Baraboo/Sauk County Schwalbach Gallery from Sept. 4 through Oct. 19. Connors is a Boston-based artist whose work examines the underlying energy and movement of the human form.
"Most of my work explores how the human figure finds balance in actions such as standing, jumping, or swimming,” said Connors.
Trained as a sculptor, Connors recycles clay to make her own paints. She combines those paints with charcoal, chalk, pencil, and ink to capture the various movement patterns she observes.
“I often find myself unwinding memories of the day in a random fashion,” she said. “I channel these memories as influences upon my paintings and drawings.”
The Schwalbach Gallery on campus is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
