Oshkosh Daily Northwestern (Newspaper) - October 12, 1971, Oshkosh, Wisconsin Shirley Lucas Artist of the Month Drawings by Shirley Lucas Chosen, for October Show Linear strength and a pre- occupation with drawing tech- niques are apparent in the re- cent art of Shu-ley Lucas (Mrs. John Lucas) exhibited in the Oshkosh Public Museum gallery this month. Mrs. Lucas, chosen Artist of the Month by the Friends of the Oshkosh Public Library, is also represented by three intaglio prints which rein- force, even in the graphic me- dium, her statement of line with- in a gradation of values. Among the strongest and most appealing of the works on exhib- it is a drawing in which the sev- erity of black-on-white is under- lined by an unexpected flash of bright orange in a suggestion of tnm on the subject's dress. Ample body, proud stance and dignity of bearing are all trans- mitted with authority by the deft- ness of Mrs. Lucas' controlled line. A declaration of the dignity of labor is made by the artist in one of the graphics; anoth- er, again with the force of the linear translation, transmits devastation following a storm. The artist, being honored this month by the Friends of the Li- brary, came to Oshkosh with her husband, a member of the WSU- 0 faculty, in 1965. Prior to her marriage she attended college at WSU-Stevens Point. Later she taught a craft class at the Madi- s o n vocational school and worked with the recreation de- partment in that city in a chil- dren's art program. "It was during that period that my interest in the art of children and young people in- she said. "I learned to respect the subtleties often found in their art And I loved most of all the free style and lack of inhibition that is charac- teristic of children's art and so often lost in adulthood." Since she came to Oshkosh she has attended classes at the uni- versity, working toward a de- gree in art education. She is a senior this year and practice teaching at Webster Stanley Junior High School. "Art has always been a way of life for she declared. "I have no memory of a time when I was not compelled to express visually a mood, a scene re- membered or imagined. It has been a continuous life chal- All facets of art intrigue her, but she has concentrated recently on drawings and graph- ics particularly intaglio. She is partial to the human figure as subject matter, and it some- times appears even in geometric constructions which almost ob- scure the figure from all but the most careful inspection. "The human form is a depart- ure toward setting up a prob- lem situation and it is always a oblem to produce a three di- mensional object in two dimen- sional It is her constant effort to pro- duce a balance between two elements she considers of equal importance: the dominance of a figurative image and the order- ing of space around it. Work toward her degree in art education has been slow since much of it has been as a part- time student. However, she feels that the approach has been ideal for her. Her two daughters have had perceptible influence on her artistic maturation Working with the faculty of the art de- partment has been a privilege, according to Mrs Lucas, who finds diversity and a wealth of background among faculty members. Her art and her phi- losophy of art education have matured with the combined ex- periences of the last six years. "There is a problem working with youngsters fundamentals are extremely important and have to be constantly re-empha- sized. But the art teacher has to be careful to keep from stifling necessary gradations of devel- opment in the child. Every child needs to grow by enjoying the legitimate pleasures of child- hood." Fundamentals must become tools, she explained, and then be used without loss of spontaneous expression. To solve the problem an art teacher must know her student each individual student and must be aware of modes of ex- pression unique to each child.

Schultz, 605 Elm St., Neenah. Announcement of her election as one of six national directors of the Women's Auxiliary to the American Dental Association was made at the national meet- ing of the auxiliary in Atlantic City. With her encouragement the county auxiliary was formed. She became the first president and has served the group in many other capacities. The Auxiliary has had priority in her activity through all her married life with the red brick Schultz home always open for meetings of the Winnebago County unit. There members have learned to expect delicious and different desserts from the kitchen of the skilled cook. At the state level she was president-elect when illness can- celled all activitity for Mrs. Schultz. She was elected secre- tary-treasurer in 1940; corres- ponding secretary in 1948, when Mrs. Mary B. Ising, Oshkosh, was state president and secre- tary again in 1960 She has been historian and on the auditing and courtesy committees A new area, at least in the state of Wisconsin and just recently pursued nationally, will be her particular concern, alert- ing young people to the opportu- nities in health careers, espe- cially those related to dentistry. In the last two years the Win- nebago County Dental Auxiliary has cooperated with the Medical Auxiliary in presenting a health careers program for the high school students of the county. One program was given at Mer- cy Medical Center and the other at Theda Clark Memorial Hospi- tal. "Our auxiliary has supplied speakers on dental hygiene and dental assistants as well as host- Mrs. Schultz recalled. She has been asked to bring ideas on health career days and other programs to several state meetings of dental auxiliaries. "There's one in March at Philadelphia where women from neighboring states have been in- vited to join the discussion of health Mrs. Schultz said. "We are hoping this will not conflict with the state bas- ketball she added. Living across from Shattuck High, the Schultzs attended high school football and basketball games for many years before their two sons played on the teams and for many years since. They go to out-of-town games, sectional and state tournaments on a regular basis. Thus, her concern with the tournament next March can be understood. Dr. Schultz has accompanied his wife to national meetings and went with her to Atlantic City, where he attended the Na- tional Dental Association ses- sions. Before returning to Neenah they plan to go on to Wilhams- burg, where "Dr. Bill" will have a "field day" taking pic- tures. Traveling each year to well- known and occasionally not so well areas is a particular inter- est for the couple. Dr. Schullz likes to take pic- tures and his skill is known in the area as the couple share their trips with Twin City groups in slide presentations. Mrs. Schultz is an important part of the team as the secre- tary, taking notes on each pic- ture. Later, as they view the slides she prepares a talk to accom- pany the presentation and gives the commentary as he runs the projector. Bill and Helena Schultz have traveled twice to Alaska, to the Scandinavian countries, to Hud- son Bay straight north from Winnipeg via train and to many areas of the United States. Their friends have enjoyed the trips through the excellent photo- graphy of the genial dentist. Mrs. Schultz was a charter member of the Theda Clark Me- m o r i a 1 Hospital Auxiliary, serving as a floor and lobby hostess until this past spring. With thoughts of her husband's retirement in mind and her cur- rent national responsibilities, she resigned recently. The Schultzs have a house on the lake where they live during the summer and enjoy entertain- ing many visitors. Helena Schultz is an avid bridge player, belonging to sev- eral groups, but she will need a regular subsitute for the next three years as she carries out her responsibilities as a national director.
