Few professors get to see, years later, how their students turned out. Adolph is fortunate: in a few days two different exhibitions of work by his former students will be up at the same time. One has already opened, at UWM’s Inova Arts Center Gallery: Adolph and three of his students.

Hundreds of other students, 33 years worth, aren’t in the UWM show, and I wondered what they’re doing. Many keep in touch with Adolph, including me (I married him). So about a month ago I had an idea for a show in Rosenblatt Gallery: ROSENBLATT’S FORMER STUDENTS, with two artworks by each artist. For the next several days I asked the former students we happened to hear from or run into if they’d like to participate, and soon we had about twenty artists. This second show will open on Gallery Night, October 15, and will overlap for a while with the UWM show, which closes November 6.
We have an exciting array of artists: Michael Davidson, Virgi Driscoll, Mike Fredrickson, Lee Ann Garrison, Karen Brittain, Tom Brittain, Josie Osborne, Allison B. Cooke, Deidre Prosen, Steve Crossot, Mark Berson, Ken Kaczmarzyk, Henry Klimowicz, Kevin Callahan, Dean Nimmer, Wendy Cooper, Mara Manning, Nancy Lamers, Joe Boblick, Evelyn Patricia Terry, Xav Leplae, Judith Reidy, Vicki Samolyk, Patter Hellstrom, and Sarah, Eli, Joshua, Pauline, and Suzanne Rosenblatt (I was Adolph’s first student).
