Logo for Lauden Nute Art Show at MATC


Lauden Nute | On view March 25 - April 18, 2019.

The Gallery at Truax presents, a Lauden Nute exhibit. Our first solo alumni art show. A local renowned art critic says this is "by far the worst artist I've never met" and "my five year old can draw better than this" and finally "I've seen better art pulled out of trash can." See for yourself. Or don't. 

Check out Lauden Nute's work on Instagram.

    Appreciating Our Past: A Photographic History of Madison College | Summer 2017
    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 by Ginger Owen and Vicki VanAmeyden | October - November 

    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.
