ARTIST STATEMENTS AND BIOS

It is only natural that our area’s visual artists would be drawn to the beauty surrounding us-there is so much scope for the imagination in the Eau Claire area. On exhibit are reclaimed objects, beautiful watercolors of familiar places, and the rivers along with the flora and fauna that they bring. We are honored to present new acquisitions to our collection and contributions to our community that will inform, educate, and inspire future generations of art enthusiasts. Don and Laura Gabor have donated a lovely sculpture reminiscent of a bird that is not found round these parts but crafted with objects that are certainly familiar to many in our region. Also newly added to Pablo Center’s Riverfront Room is a special commission of glorious stained glass by Michael Pilla contributed by James W Hansen. You can catch a glimpse of The First Treasure as you walk between Pablo Center and the Chippewa River.
There is so much beauty tucked away in our art collection. We are proud to offer you a glimpse into the Laurie Bieze Art Collection.
Contributions to the Laurie Bieze Permanent Art Collection enrich the art experience for anyone who walks through the doors of Pablo Center.
