Promega Fall Art Showcase Features Thirty Years of DC Courtroom Art
MADISON, WISCONSIN (August 24, 2010)
The Promega Fall Art Showcase presents "Thirty Years of DC Courtroom Art". The showcase is pleased to host the works of Betty Wells who sketched famous events and trials primarily in Washington, DC over the last 30 years. This collection includes sketches she created for national news media on both public and undercover assignments.
Some of the people and events captured by Wells include: 2003 Beltway Sniper Trial of John Allen Muhammad, 1995 Susan Smith Trial for the murder of her two sons, 1991 Manual Noriega Trial, 1991 Supreme Court Justices, and the 1989 HUD Hearing on political favoritism. She is known not only for her lightening quick sketching, but also for a photographic memory that helped her capture these historic events. Her work is done in pen and ink, markers, colored pencils, conté crayon, pastels, and acrylics. This exhibit is produced with the assistance and direction of Vickie Gentri.
Also exhibiting at the Fall Art Showcase is local artist and art teacher, Mark Pflughoeft. His abstract, 2-D multimedia pieces can build up to 4 layers deep. They incorporate a complex integration of shape, lines and colors expressed through Plexiglas, paper, plastic acetate and acrylic paints. Mark listens for the voice of the painter deep within himself as he creates each piece of artwork.
The Fall Showcase opens Tuesday, September 21, 2010 and continues through December 1, 2010 at the Promega BioPharmaceutical Technology Center (BTC) in Madison. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday 8:00am to 4:00pm. Daniel Swadener, in conjunction with Promega, is the producer of the art exhibit. For more information Daniel can be contacted through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit his web site at: danielswadener.com.
Promega Corporation has sponsored the artist's showcase since 1996 as part of the company's commitment to creativity and innovation in the arts, cultures and sciences. The Biopharmaceutical Technology Center, located on 5445 East Cheryl Parkway two miles south of Highway 12/18 (Beltline) off Fish Hatchery Road, was developed, in part, to provide Promega employees and community members a place to pursue these goals.
