MANITOWOC, Wis. — The Silver Lake College of the Holy Family Art Department presents Night of the Arts on Nov. 16 from 5-7 p.m. at the College, 2406 S. Alverno Road.
Night of the Arts will feature an artist’s reception and musical performances by the Silver Lake College of the Holy Family Jazz Ensemble. Students performing are: Tyler Burk, Benjamin Karnitz, Jack McConnell, Michael Stearns, Bella Skirvin, Hanna Stolper, Ally Wasmer and Faith Webb.
Artwork from the Tiny Art Show, running now through Nov. 16, and the Lakeshore Artists Guild Exhibit, running Nov. 8 through Dec. 14, in the Du Charme Erdmann and Donald P. Taylor galleries, respectively, will be on display during the Night of the Arts. The event is free and open to the public.
“Last year, the Tiny Art Show was a huge success for the Lakeshore Artists Guild, and I’m excited that this year we will host the exhibit at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family,” shares Erin LaBonte, Art Department co-chair and associate professor of art at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family. “After the show’s success, the Guild grew in size substantially. Artists came out of the wood work and got involved. This year, the Tiny Art Show will be on exhibit at the same time as the Annual Lakeshore Artists Guild Exhibit at the College, in the Donald P. Taylor Gallery. We will be combining the receptions into our annual Night of the Arts. This will be a really exciting night for artists in our community, as last year more than 70 artists participated in the Tiny Art Show, and the Lakeshore Artists Guild exhibit will represent the work of 23 local artists. I really encourage the community to come out and support the arts and the artists!”
Artwork in the Tiny Art Show does not exceed six inches in any direction. The Lakeshore Artists Guild represents Manitowoc County area artists in a wide variety of visual art forms with the mission of advancing the appreciation of art.
Silver lake College of the Holy Family gallery hours are from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
