— An exhibit featuring wirework by Whitewater High School art students and contemporary jewelry by metalsmiths Greg Greenwood and Rachael Brooke Winkley will be on display at the Cultural Arts Center, 402 W. Main St., from Friday, Oct. 10-31.

Exhibit hours are noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.

An opening reception will be held from 5-8 p.m. Friday at the Cultural Arts Center.

Over the summer, members of the Whitewater Arts Alliance, the UW-Whitewater art department and Whitewater High School art teacher Debra Brigham-Schmuhl worked together to generate an outreach activity to introduce the community to the university-based Women of Metal Project, a two-part initiative comprising an exhibition of first- and second-generation women metalsmiths and an oral history project.

Guided by interests in mentorship, connection and education, they developed an intergenerational project that involves students, faculty and community members. The Cultural Arts Center exhibition “Generation Next: Wirework by Whitewater High School Art Students” is the result of those shared efforts.

To learn more about wireworking and metalsmithing, to attend related workshops or more information about the exhibit, call (262) 472-0204 or go to www.whitewaterarts.org or blogs.uww.edu/Crossman.
