Justin Terlecki

"Theater: Prints & Painings" by Justin Terlecki is the exhibit open to the public at no charge in the Central Lakes College Gallery on the Brainerd campus Feb. 22-March 26. The St. Paul artist said "Common themes that inform my imagery over the past decade deal with contrasts. Chaos and calm, solitude and community, and darkness and light are a few examples that I have been exploring. Experimenting with these themes, I combine them with familiar objects and signs of everyday life. The discovery of the fantastic through the mundane drives this body of work. Terlecki earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts, painting & printmaking, from Youngstown State University, Youngstown, Ohio, in 1997. Among his grants: 2009-2010 Jerome Foundation Emerging Printmakers’ Residency, Highpoint Center for Printmaking.
