Art exhibit features finest works by Nicolet grad Stephen Wysocki

March 29, 2017

Twenty-five years ago, as a student studying and creating art at Nicolet, painter Stephen Wysocki set off on a creative journey that continues to this day.

“My mission is to show beauty in the ordinary, to allow the viewer to experience an image they see every day in a new way,” Wysocki said.

StandoffHis path has now come full circle with the finest pieces he’s created over the past quarter century currently on display in a solo exhibit in the Nicolet College Art Gallery.

Wysocki, who continued training in the arts at UW-Green Bay after Nicolet, is known for giving a unique perspective to commonplace objects.

“I gravitate to ordinary structures or roadside junk, rusty and for sale,” said Wysocki, who paints out his studio on the Armstrong Creek Buffalo Ranch. “I see the hard edge contrasts these everyday objects convey, and try to portray that in the hues and shadows of my paintings.”

The exhibit runs through April 21. Admission is free.

The gallery, located in the Northwoods Center, is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Nicolet Campus is located one mile south of Rhinelander just off of Hwy. G.
