In honor of the late Lew Alquist
cross-posted at Remembering Lew Alquist

A show of six pieces by the late sculptor Lewis Alquist will open at the Arizona State University Harry Wood Gallery on February 6, 2006. It will run for one month. Lew's widow, Jane Pleak, will attend the opening.

There is also a new scholarship in honor of Lew. The Lewis Alquist Memorial Art Scholarship is the work of the Georgia Southern University Foundations Department. This scholarship will enrich the opportunities of the sculpture students and offer a stipend for their art supplies. The fund is steadily growing and hopefully will be fully endowed in the next few years. The first of these scholarships will be offered at the opening of the new art gallery at Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art in Statesboro, Georgia. Send contributions, made payable to the Georgia Southern University Foundation, to
