2021 Season Exhibits & Events
Due to COVID-19, Nicolet Art Gallery is closed to the public.
Nicolet Student Show
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.
Environmental Art Online Workshop
Environmental Art is a great way to connect with our natural world and immerse yourself in the creative process while having fun outside. Do you want to reduce your stress by spending more time outside doing something creative? Or do you just love making things and just want to try something new? Environmental Art is a growing field in the visual arts and there are numerous artists around the world making exciting Environmental Art.
This is an opportunity for you and maybe your family, to learn how to make your own site-specific environmental art installations and to learn about this growing field from artists and educators. Thielking and Robinson will give a presentation introducing environmental art, its history, and a range of exciting contemporary works in the field. They will also talk about their own environmental work and their collaborations with the international Catching A Wave Collective (CatchingaWave.org). Participants will be making several environmental site-specific works, will document them and share them through a virtual gallery, and will be invited to share their work with other participants in a follow up conversation. No experience necessary and all ages welcome.
Instructors: Lisa Beth Robinson & Kristin Theilking
