Nicolet College Art Student Exhibit
Nicolet students exhibit their drawings, paintings, ceramics, and photography. The work is the result of a variety of exercises assigned by their instructors. The students are working with foundational principles of art such as composition, contrast, design, color, line, shape, and value. In life-drawing classes, students gain a better understanding of anatomy in order to draw and paint portraits and figures.
Iceland with Craig Pilecky
In 2016-2017, Craig Pilecky, a photographer based in Antigo, made two trips to Iceland to capture its otherworldly Nordic scenery with his cameras. Shooting as he went, he traveled along the island nation’s legendary Ring Road, known for its imposing mountains, active volcanoes, vast lava fields, blue icebergs, and thunderous waterfalls. The photographic record of his journeys will be the subject of both a Nicolet Art Gallery exhibit and an illustrated talk in the Northwoods Center on April 10 at 7:30 pm.

Terry Gunderson Shulta
Wausau-based artist Terry Gunderson Shulta creates distinctive abstract works by applying paper, glue, ink, and miscellaneous other items to canvases. She describes her process as intuitive – when she begins a piece, she has no concept in mind and no plan about where the piece will go. “The toughest part is knowing when a piece is complete,” she says. Terry graduated from University of Wisconsin Stevens Point in 1980 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art.
