Upcoming Events

Visit the Gallery & View Art on Campus

The Nicolet Art Gallery in the Northwoods Center is featuring a variety of vibrant shows in a wide range of media: painting, photography, fiber art, pottery, and more. The gallery serves as a teaching gallery with Nicolet art classes continuously using the current displays for reference and study. In addition to the gallery, the Nicolet campus serves as a place for professional artists from the Nicolet District and beyond to display their work.



View the Northern National Virtual Retrospective.

Nicolet College and the Northern Arts Council are pleased to announce the Northern National Virtual Retrospective. The Northern National Art Competition is a 34-year tradition. While we have had to suspend the exhibition for two years due to the pandemic, we are excited to offer this virtual retrospective and opening celebration featuring a historical overview of the birth of this illustrious competition and its impact on the arts in the Northwoods. We will revisit the Northern National Archives and highlight prizewinning artists and memorabilia. We invite past artists to post their memories, comments, and personal updates on their career trajectories on our Nicolet Gallery Facebook page.
