    2014 Educator Showcase: Chris Olszewski


    As an active member of the Chippewa of Mnjikaning First Nation, I have developed my aesthetic from the creative visual language of the Northern Woodland people.  My work is rooted in western painting traditions, as well as being trained in the modernist/postmodernist philosophy of art.  I also have a fascination with the ancient Native American world and how it interacts with current times.  My goal is to develop the Native American image beyond the “Souvenir Shop” and to depict actual people struggling with the encroachment of the dominant contemporary culture.  Chris works as a professor in the School of Foundations Studies, SCAD.

    2014 Educator Showcase: Kjellgren Alkire

    Kjellgren Alkire makes art about doubt and certainty, language and its failure, people and their politics, agriculture and its subcultures. He often critiques masculine archetypes by performing both for the camera and in live artworks. Pairing male characters with texts, graphics and installation, he interrogates and celebrates subcultural productions of identity and mythology. Choosing to work interdisciplinary, he is agnostic regarding specific material traditions, media practices or creative toolsets.

    His studio and curatorial work has been a beneficiary of several awards, including 2014 Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists, a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, a Contemporary Forum Award from the Phoenix Art Museum and Project Funding from the Missouri Arts Council.

    He teaches art and design at Winona State University in lovely southeastern Minnesota. His life is beautiful and flawed.
