Sophomore Art Exhibit Through March 22

Posted on February 26 2013

Silver Lake College of the Holy Family is delighted to present art exhibitions for three talented sophomores in our Fine Arts Program. The exhibit features original works of art created by Erika Cashman, Randy Gruenweller, and Kryssa Luckow, who are all pursuing Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Studio Art from Silver Lake College. The exhibit also includes pieces of student art honoring Catholic Franciscan Values. The exhibit is located in the art wing hallway gallery (inside the east entrance to the main building of the College), at 2406 South Alverno Road in Manitowoc, and is open to the public from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Thursday, and 8 am to 4:30 pm on Friday and Saturday, until March 22, 2013.

Erika Cashman was raised in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. In the future she hopes to work as a geneticist for the CSI and continue her personal art studio at home. “My art is about what interests me; it’s not about anything specific, it’s what I say, what I see and what I want to convey to others,” says Erika. She taught herself to draw at a very young age and with encouragement from her mom and teachers, along with her own ambitions, she has continued to grow as an artist.

Randy Gruenweller grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and became interested in art while in high school. Randy shares, “I picked Silver Lake College because the art program is excellent, and I wanted to be in a small environment so it would be easier to get help from teachers.” His art is about being creative by using imagination. He wants people to use their imagination so they can see the world in new ways and possibly make their own art. 

Kryssa Luckow grew up in Newton, Wisconsin. “I choose Silver Lake College for art because I heard good things about their art program and it was close to home.  Kryssa states, “My art is about inspiring others to recognize the beautiful things around them that many take for granted. It is to get my viewers to connect with my pieces.” Her art ranges from drawings to photography and graphic art. After college Kryssa hopes to work for a business in this area as a graphic artist.
