Superior Wisconsin Art
After many years in education, I returned to school to complete a Master's degree in Art Education at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. I received my BFA from the University of MN Duluth and studied and painted for two years at the Art School of U-M Duluth, then I received a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) from Olney Central College in Olney, IL. After many years of teaching and work, I completed my Master's degree in Art Education at the University of Wisconsin, first for a few years at St. John's University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and then again at the University of Milwaukee.
I have recently supported many courses at the Duluth Art Institute and given kiln building courses, and I have found a local art center to share my ceramic techniques and experiences with students at the Art Gallery of Wisconsin - Superior and the Wisconsin Firing Arts Center in Milwaukee.
The museum also houses a program to train new and experienced instrument repairers in the professionalism of certified professionals. The only school of its kind is the University of Wisconsin - Superior's Institute for Instrument Repairer Education and Training.
With an enrollment of 2,200, Wisconsin - Indianhead Technical College (WITC) offers skills development and technical education. Superior is supervised by the Upper School District, which has more than 1,000 elementary, middle and high school students.
The Catholic Church of St. Francis Xavier, located in the East End of Superior, is known for its architecture. The Cathedral of Christ the King in Superior is the mother church of the diocese and houses more than 1,000 parishioners and over 2,500 priests and nuns. Two rooms, including a chapel, a church hall, an auditorium and a library, as well as an art gallery and an office.
On the west side of the hall is the Duane Sellman Special Exhibitions Area, which honors personalities who have significantly influenced American performance art and whose estates are housed in the museum. The show was meant to honor the taxidermist and build on the history of his work, said Mead Mead, the director of the Department of Natural Resources.
He has been honored for his work by watercolor companies around the country, including the American Watercolor Society's High Winds Medal and the Transparent Watercolors Society of America. Andy was asked to rate several exhibitions in the US and Canada, including exhibitions at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., the New York Public Library, the Smithsonian Institution and other institutions. In 2012, his paintings won the "Best of the Year" award for the 2011 / 12 season in several exhibitions, including an exhibition of his painting "Watercolor in America," a collaboration with the University of Wisconsin - Madison's Art Institute of Art and Design, at an exhibition of the American Watershed Society. He achieved "signature status" with Transparencies in Water Color Society America and received the High-Wind Medal for Signature status of the American Watercolor Society in 2015.
