Menomonie, Wis. — An exhibit featuring works by two artists will open Monday, March 2, at

University of Wisconsin-Stout.

“Eye Candy” by UW-Stout Professor Kate Maury and “Legacy of an Ecocide: Agent Orange

Aftermath” by St. Paul photographer Petronella Ytsma will be at Furlong Gallery in Micheels

Hall through Friday, April 3.

An opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 5, at the gallery.

Maury will display ceramics she created during a 2014 sabbatical at the International

Ceramics Studio in Kecskemet, Hungary.

Ytsma will exhibit photos that show the multigenerational effects of Agent Orange used

during the Vietnam War. The photos were taken during two trips to Vietnam. She interviewed

officials, visited long-term care facilities and went to homes of 75 families, many of which had

second- and third-generation children with disabilities related to the use of Agent Orange.
