Wilson Elementary School is excited to display the artwork of Erica Huntzinger. As a painter, Huntzinger describes her work as visual documentations of internal landscapes. Her work is captured and distilled through sensitive attention to experiences in an attempt to bridge the dualities of the conscious and the unconscious. Each piece is realized through the use and manipulation of color, texture, text and space; filtered, steeped in and manifested through paint and clay.

Zach Hall is a Port Washington photographer who has given new meaning and perspective to his explorations around Wisconsin. On exhibit is a series of waterscape photographs taken in Wisconsin State Parks and familiar locations around Lake Michigan. Zach said,“The beauty of photography is once you find yourself immersed in it, you can’t help but see everything from that vantage point. Photography has been an outlet that has allowed me to get away from the stresses of life and immerse myself into something more meaningful.” The exhibition is a great representation of the extreme weather differences faced in Wisconsin.

Wilson students were fortunate to experiment with Torginol ColorFlakes. Students studied Art Deco designs and developed their own work of art.
Torginol is located on the south end of Taylor Drive in Sheboygan. They exclusively manufacture and distribute an array of decorative materials for a variety of niche markets, including: resinous and terrazzo flooring, decorative wall coatings, pool plaster finishes, grouts and mortars, EIFS systems, engineered surfaces, landscaping, fish aquariums, art, craft and hobby projects, home décor accents and others.

5th grade students recently completed a collaborative art project inspired by the poster Mind Warp. The poster is 4’x 9′ long and is on display in the gym hallway.
In his artist’s statement, Howland says that his life has been devoted to being a collector of images and sensations. “My process of accumulation is via two agents — nature and culture,” he said. “My early stirrings were to be in and observing nature, as this has always moved me from a very young age during my boyhood in Duluth, Minnesota. It is in nature, I reconnect with the boy who explored woods, fields, ponds, rivers; who always was checking under rocks and boards, waist deep in ponds, climbing trees, etc.”
