The Waldorf College Art Gallery will debut it’s 2014-15 season with display of artwork created by Minnesota State University Mankato art professor Brian Frink.
Since Frink began teaching at MSU in 1989, he has received numerous regional and national awards for his painting and drawings, which have been exhibited throughout the country. He has previewed art in over sixty exhibitions at prominent academic and art institutions.
Frink’s paintings follow two themes, Memory of Water and Search for the Black Madonna, using both watercolor and oil mediums. “His pieces are more abstract in style rather than being realistic representations,” Dean Swenson, art gallery director and instructor of art, said. “Frink considers his artwork ‘impressions’ of how he remembers each scene and subject.”
Frink’s artwork is on display on campus until October 2, with an artist reception on Thursday, September 18 at 5:30 p.m. in the Waldorf Art Gallery. At 6:30 p.m., Frink will participate in an artist talk where he will discuss his artwork and theme in depth. For more information about the Waldorf Art Gallery contact Dean Swenson at 641-585-8210. Gallery hours are from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. when classes are in session.
