    Staying Focused | Student work from the Photography Program at Madison College


    The Horizon Just Laughed | January 14 through February 6: This group show consists of eight Wisconsin artists who are all focused on painting as their central medium. The artist's included are: Tim Brenner, Andres Torres, Austin Moule, Chris Bostwick, Guzzo Pinc, Justin Eccles, Cassie Marie Edwards, and Rebecca Kautz.

    Carry on | February 17 - March 12: A solo show featuring local artist Quenten Brown’s two-dimensional abstract work. Quenten’s style nods to modernity while adhering to time tested principles of form and composition. He uses a variety of media including latex, acrylic and oil paints accented by watercolor, colored pencil, ink, and collage. This show is a commentary of our disposable culture. The forms in his pieces are often stacked on or squeezed into the picture plane to mimic the notion of massive amounts of information we receive on a minute by minute basis.

    Madison Area Technical College has evolved to meet the needs of our diverse communities since opening our doors to students back in 1912. In our 105-year history, we have grown from 63 students in a single room above a fire station to nine campuses with more than 150 programs. As we move forward into the future, we appreciate where we have been in the past.

    Heritage Habitats Kite Display at MATC Gallery at Truax

    Artist Statement: Heritage Habitats is a series of physical spaces for contemplation and invocation of ancestry. Framed around nostalgia and memory, "Kites," "Hankies" and "Cairn" are large scale, sculptural and experiential installations that engage in viewers’ unique memories and experiences. In essence, the work emphasizes commonalities that bind people and cultures and serves as an expression of humanism.
