MARINETTE, Wis. - In the month of October, the University of Wisconsin-Marinette will present "3 Generations," a painting exhibit featuring the three-generation, maternally-related artists Susan Perrine, Lorene Sigal and Katherine Perrine.
A reception will be held at the UW-Marinette gallery on Friday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Susan Perrine serves as president of the Menominee Area Arts Council, teaches art and paints in watercolor, oil and pastel. In this exhibit, she is presenting landscape and "plein air" landscape paintings. Susan graduated from University of Washington with a BFA in art and art history.
Lorene Sigal, her mother, is an artist and retired research scientist. She visits Menominee in the winter and is presenting the watercolors inspired by her visits. Early in her career she was a scientific illustrator after graduating from Stanford University with a BA in art. She also has a PHD in ecology and worked at the Oak Ridge National Laboratories in the Environmental Sciences Division.
Katie Perrine is a student at the School of Art Institute in Chicago studying architecture, interior architecture and art. She has been creating art all her life, influenced not only by her mother and grandmother but also by her grandfather who was an architect, and her father who is a naval architect. Her work has a bolder, more graphic, colorful style.
The reception on Oct. 4 is free and open to the public.
The exhibit runs through Oct. 31. Regular gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Fine and Performing Arts Building, located at 750 West Bay Shore St. in Marinette.
