AUG. 7, 2006--A sculptural exhibition of selected "chairscapes" will be presented at the University of Wisconsin River Falls Gallery 101 in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building from Sept. 6 to 26.
"At the Table: Selected Works" is from an ongoing collaboration among members of chapters of the national Women's Caucus for Art ( www.nationalwca.com).
