By UW-Sheboygan

University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan Professor of Art Tom Uebelherr has been selected as an exhibitor in the renowned Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition in New York. The show includes a special opening reception on Thursday, August 28 and will be on display at the Agora Gallery in New York, NY, until September 11.

Uebelherr came to UW-Sheboygan in 2001 and was promoted to a full Professor of Art in June 2014. Uebelherr received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he studied and graduated with the late UW-Sheboygan Dean Raymond T. Hernandez.

Uebelherr is a prolific visual artist, creating unique and thought-provoking sculptures, such as the two entered in the Chelsea International exhibit. The two art pieces currently on display in New York are “Mr. Nobody” and “Midnight Rider Urn,” both steel mixed media sculptures.

The Chelsea International Fine Art Competition is a renowned art contest that is juried by prominent museum curators and art experts. It is an opportunity for juror-selected artists to gain exposure by exhibiting their work in the famed Chelsea art gallery district as well as by being promoted in online and print promotions.

The competition is open to visual artists from anywhere in the world at any stage in their careers. In previous years, selected artists have worked in painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, mixed media and print. The contest is juried by influential voices in the New York art world. Carlo McCormick, one of New York’s noted culture critics and curators, served as the 2014 juror.

The Agora Gallery is located at West 25th Street in New York, NY.
