UW-Superior’s Kruk Gallery to host visiting artists Starting Oct. 9
The University of Wisconsin-Superior will host visiting artists Robb Quisling and Jonathan Thunder for the exhibition “Aqua Vitae,” which begins October 9 and runs through November 20 in the Kruk Gallery.
The artists bring their own experiences with alcohol addiction and recovery to bear on the visual imagery of their work, exploring the substance as both a seductive chemical as well as a force of entrapment.
Quisling is a printmaker and installation artist who lives and works in Duluth. He has exhibited in Chicago and locally at the Duluth Art Institute. His work centers on themes of connection and human interactions. Quisling is also an art teacher at Hermantown High School.
Thunder attended the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and studied visual effects and motion graphics at the Art Institute International in Minneapolis. His work has been featured in state, regional, and national exhibitions, as well as in local and international publications. Thunder is the recipient of a 2020 Pollock – Krasner Foundation Award for painting.
This exhibition is free and open to the public. The Kruk Gallery is open Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Masks will be required, and social distancing guidelines will be enforced. For additional information, contact Anne Dugan at (218) 310-4703 or email@example.com. The Kruk Gallery is located in the Holden Fine Arts Center at 1805 Catlin Ave. in Superior.
