Nik Teipel Exhibit
Nik Teipel Solo Exhibit
For the first time the Art Center hosted two special exhibits at the same time. In the Exhibit Gallery a solo exhibit by Nik Teipel was on display through November 1st, 2014.
Nik was the 2012 Seasons in St. Clair competition winner with her painting Michigan Spring.
Nik provided the following Artist Statement
A sincere face that signifies an intricately working mind is what motivated me to paint the portraits on the walls surrounding you. They are all works in progress, as am I. I live with them and watch them, and some of them watch me back, and as I learn, they change. No painting within my reach is ever really done as long as I have eyes, a brush, some paint, and a better idea. In contrast, the work in the bins is the result of studying, practicing and developing drawing skills, done in very limited blocks of time, with most of the subjects being professional models.
