Join The Pfister® Hotel and InterContinental® Milwaukee this Friday, January 22, 2016 as they host exhibits for the Historic Third Ward’s Gallery Night & Day and vote for the next Pfister Artist-in-Residence.

The historic Pfister Hotel recently announced the six finalists for its 2016-2017 Artist-in-Residence program. Work by the finalists will be displayed at Gallerie M, inside InterContinental® Milwaukee, where the public will be invited to vote in person via ballot box. This year’s finalists are Francis Annan Affotey, abstract painter; Pamela Anderson, abstract impressionist artist; Rachel Frank, fiber artist/wearable art; Candace Hunter, mixed media/collage; Indie LaLonde, mosaics; and Heidi Parkes, quilter. The exhibit will remain in the space until mid-February.

Beginning Friday, January 22, 2016 at noon, members of the public will be able to vote online at, or via manual ballot vote at both Gallerie M and the Artist in Residence Studio at the Pfister. Voting will end on Monday, February 15 at noon, and the selection committee will announce the next artist in residence soon thereafter. Public voting will equate to one seat on the selection committee, influencing the final decision. The winner of the public vote will receive a solo exhibit at Gallerie M.

Gallery-goers are invited to an opening reception at the Pfister on January 22, 2016 from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m. The Artist-in-Residence finalists will be there for a meet-and-greet. A large selection of paintings from current Artist-in-Residence Todd Mrozinski’s The Light From the Pfister Series will be on display in the Pfister Pop-Up Gallery, and his recent series of watercolors based on the Pfister’s Afternoon Tea will be exhibited in the Artist-in-Residence Studio.
