The Pfister® Hotel Curates Exhibit Featuring Local Artists for Display at Wisconsin Lutheran College
Exhibit features works from five years of finalists in the hotel’s Artist in Residence Program
Milwaukee, Wis., Feb. 17, 2014 – The Milwaukee community once again has the opportunity to view artwork from several exemplary artists who were selected as finalists for The Pfister Hotel’s prestigious Artist-in-Residence program over the past five years.
Representatives of The Pfister Hotel have coordinated another local exhibit to showcase the program’s talent, which will be on display at the Schlueter Art Gallery at Wisconsin Lutheran College from Feb. 14 – April 11, 2014. An opening reception will be held at the gallery on Friday, Feb. 21, 2014 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. A similar exhibit was previously shown at the Delafield Arts Center and the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts.
Each of the artists in the exhibit previously had pieces displayed through The Pfister’s Artist-in-Residence program after having been selected as a finalist from a greater pool of applicants. Each year, the finalists’ work is displayed at Gallerie M, inside InterContinental Milwaukee, for the public to vote on their favorite.
“Each spring, after our new artist in residence has been selected, there are five talented finalists remaining who were brought to the forefront during the process,” explained Paul Ohm, general manager of The Pfister. “These finalist exhibits are a great way to recognize those artists and continue to support and promote them. There’s so much talent in our community and we are honored to have the opportunity to provide another platform through which they can showcase their work.”
Some of the finalists whose work will be featured in the exhibit include Pamela Anderson, Albin Erhart, Bridget Griffith Evans, Tonia Klein, John Kowalcyzk, Brandon Minga, Kate Pfeiffer, Steve Ohlrich, and Anthony Suminski. In addition to the finalists being featured, former Pfister Artist in Residence Timothy Westbrook and current Artist in Residence Stephanie Barenz also will have work displayed in the exhibit.
The Schlueter Art Gallery is located at 8800 W. Bluemound Rd. in Milwaukee.
