Gallery gains prestige by Margaret LeBrun Since its opening, the Foster Art Gallery has been known as an educational and cultural asset to (JW-Eau Claire. It has steadily gained prestige for its exhibits of nationally known artists and serves as a practical extension of the art department's classrooms. The exhibit of 45 pieces of art from the university's permanent collection (early in the 1981 spring semester) illustrated the diversity of the gallery program. Examples of award-winning student art was hung beside works created by Important figures In the contemporary art world, including Roy Lichtenstein. Jim Dine. James Rosenquist, Patrick Caulfield. Allan D'Arcangelo. Robert Stackhouse. David Gilhooley, Julius Schmidt and Clinton Hill. Many of these famous artists have had exhibits In the Foster, including Lichtenstein, who visited the campus during his show in early 1980. Gallery director William Pearson said that as more well-known artists exhibit their work here, the gallery becomes more prestigious and therefore draws more well-known artists to the gallery for exhibitions. Pearson contacts artists chosen by the gallery committee to see if they would like to have their work displayed in the Foster. "A lot of artists just say 'Eau Claire where?’ A lot of people just don't consider it; it's not going to advance their reputation as an artist,” Pearson said. But since Lichtenstein and other major artists have displayed their work here, he added, the gallery has been building its reputation. Lichtenstein's visit was unique because it was the result of a huge postcard campaign. Enthusiastic art students and faculty encouraged him to come by flooding him with mall. (The value of his work In that show. Pearson said, was approximately $490,000) Although thousands of dollars in art is displayed In nearly every show, there has never been a vandalism problem. Only once has a piece been damaged; It was by accident, and. fortunately, it could be repaired. The gallery has been a useful site for BFA students' required exhibitions. Also, the annual student shows present an opportunity for the students to have their work judged by major artists. In the past, these shows have been judged by artists such as George Segal and Chuck Close. Students can get directly involved with the reality of the art world by attending discussions and slide shows by visiting artists, or by talking to them personally. On occasion, students have participated In workshops in which the artist demonstrates his technique. Several sculpture students took part in constructing Stackhouse's "Eau Claire Sailings," the wooden structure that was erected on the bank of the Chippewa River in the spring of 1980. The patio adjacent to the gallery will soon be covered with a skylight roof, which will enlarge the gallery and enhance It by allowing art to be displayed in natural light year-round. Am Smith ten

Since its beginning, state and national forensic championships have been the usual rather than the exception. Randall Lake, director of forensics, said (JWEC has the largest, most successful and best supported forensic program In the (JW System. Besides the fact that forensics is a good experience and gives training in inter acting with others. Lake said. It's just plain fun. This year, between 40 to 45 students attended tournaments, which are heid from September to April. Dana David-son-Hempelman, a junior from Normal. III., said she spends 20 to 30 hours a week on forensics — a one-credit course, though students do not have to take the course to compete in tournaments. She said her interest in forensics is not based on the credit. Rather, she said, she’s involved because she enjoys it. She said forensics is also good practl cal experience for her major, education, and that it helps build self-assurance and ability to relate to people. Colleen Keough, a senior transfer student. said one credit for forensics Is better than none, as she has been to schools where no credit Is offered. The program's reputation may not be the main reason students come to (JWEC she said, but it certainly makes the school more attractive. Forensics has two general categories, team debate and individual competition. The individual category has sub-cate gories of Interpretation (performing of another author's work) and public address (performing original work.) The year's highlights included the American Forensic Association. National Forensic Association, the Pi Kappa Delta and national debate meets
