In addition, the FDA has stepped up 21 CFR 11 inspections that include CSV.

"Merging Remnants" Art Opening Reception by Robert Gehrke

The Local Store, Eau Claire
Robert's recent work explores image as metaphor, symbol and archetype. Meanings we attach to personal experience are often guided by a sense of history. It is one way we make sense of fragmentary and limited views. An object or image can serve as a vehicle for complex and open-ended concepts that transcend the literal. The works for this exhibit are inspired by things seen and unseen that inform my daily experience and sense of place. Historic photos, postcard images, found objects, and landscapes express various ways of being in the world.

Bob Gehrke has exhibited his work in Sculpture Tour Eau Claire, Birds In Art (Wausau), Art Kudos (online), First Street Gallery National Exhibition (New York City) and the Northern National Art Competition (Rhinelander).

Camp Campus

University of Wisconsin Campus Registration Deadline: April 10, 2016
Camp Campus is a one week on-campus university experience for high school juniors and seniors diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. The camp provides an immersion into college life for students who are very capable of succeeding academically but who often fail because they have trouble adapting to the social demands of college life. During the week of Camp Campus, campers use typical college student supports including their own University debit card, dining services, dorms with a room-mate, recreational opportunities and fitness training. They improve social and communication skills through 90 minutes of instruction and practice each day. We also arrange for each camper to explore his field of interest by meeting with professors who teach in that field and with professionals currently working in that field. Campers use current technology to develop an online individual portfolio and to facilitate social understanding.
This is still an underserved population with needs that, if left unaddressed, can interfere with completion of postsecondary education, successful employment and independent living. At this point, going into our 8th year, we've seen many students who have succeeded at the college level, graduated and transitioned into successful stable careers. For the first several years, Camp Campus was supported through a Medicaid Infrastructure Grant but of course that money has long ago dried up. Camp Campus is non-profit (very)! The cost for the week is $850 (Scholarships may be available based upon need.) We frequently hear people say thy did not know about Camp Campus so clearly we need to do more to get the word out. . .difficult, because that is not my area of expertise and we have no money to advertise, of course. Thank you for any help you can provide. If you have questions, comments or suggestions, please contact me by return email or call me at 715-836-4774 (Office) or 715-723-2903 (Home). I will be in and out of the office all week (Spring Break) but you can leave a message. Thank you.

"In Place" Art Opening Reception w/ Rebecca Crowell

The Local Store at the Volume One World Headquarters 205 N. Dewey St. Eau Claire, WI 54703
Rebecca's abstract paintings come from memories of particular places she has visited, and are her efforts to distill their unique character and emotional impact. She especially love places that are remote, rugged, rocky and wild, and has recently spent time in such locations in Ireland, Sweden, and New Mexico. She uses oil paint, cold wax medium, and various powders and drawing tools to create complex surfaces that resonate with her memories and responses to these experiences.
