MANITOWOC, Wis. – The Silver Lake College of the Holy Family art department will host an exhibit by Green Bay artist Andrew Linskens from Feb. 28 through March 28 in the DuCharme Edrmann Gallery in Main Hall on campus, 2406 S. Alverno Road.
A reception celebrating Linskens’ exhibit and an exhibit by the Sheboygan Visual Artists will be held on March 7 from 5-7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public, and also will feature the music of the Silver Lake College of the Holy Family Jazz Ensemble.
Linskens is an award-winning artist who has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and is the acting art director of NorthCoast Productions.
Erin LaBonte, associate professor of art and art department co-chair at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family, was introduced to Andrew Linskens’ work at the Art Garage in Green Bay last spring. “He was painting a large mural with a few other artists to hip hop music. It was an edgy, engaging and refreshing to experience,” LaBonte said. “He is a very prolific artist, and I think our students will be excited by his works. They are thought-proving and many are political and/or dystopian.”
As an artist, Linskens is strongly influenced by his varied background as a meteorologist, digital media producer and fine artist. His current work is comprised of pop-technology inspired assemblage sculptures, and intricately detailed paintings and drawings. Linskens also is very interested in live art performance and is one of the founding members of The Art-Hop Collective.
Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The DuCharme Edrmann Gallery is accessible by entering through the East Entrance of Main Hall.
