The Wright Museum of Art is proud to showcase the 66th Annual Beloit and Vicinity
Exhibition, one of the oldest continuous juried art competitions in the state of Wisconsin. Special thanks to this year’s jurors, Colin Matthes, Director of the UW-Parkside Gallery and Roberto Torres Mata, multidisciplinary artist, who have selected a diverse range of mediums and subjects to create interesting exhibition.

Also on view, the winner of the 65th Annual Beloit & Vicinity’s solo show. Step into Leah Mitchell’s whimsical world of confections and confessions, where doughnuts become haute couture and laughter mixes with introspection. Mitchell’s vibrant paintings playfully explore the fine line between being a consumer and being consumed. Beneath the sugary surface of doughnut couture lies a thoughtful exploration of societal expectations of femininity and the empty allure of consumer culture. Join us for a delightful journey where pink frosting meets profound reflection, challenging us to rethink the sweet promises of modernity.
