New Works by Elizabeth Schwankl
Nichole’s Fine Pastry is pleased to present an exhibit of new works created by Elizabeth Schwankl, now through February 2019. Each of the works uses the artist’s aluminart technique, which melds industrial materials and paint to create a dazzling new media.
Schwankl paints in a range of styles, from non-objective abstract acrylics to near photo realistic works in oil. Her work has garnered numerous awards in regional and national art exhibitions, and can be found in corporate, institutional and private collections from coast to coast. Among other honors, she was the featured artist at the State Capitol in Bismarck, ND in 2016 and her work was included in the exhibition and catalog “Abstract 100 – 31 Artists – Abstract Art Southern Red River Valley 1954 – 2010” at Minnesota State University Moorhead in 2010.
Schwankl has trained with nationally known artists, including Judi Betts, John T. Salminen, Cheng Khee Chee and Carl Dalio among others. A professional artist since 1989, she gained Red River Watercolor Society signature status in 2004, winning awards at the National level, and also served as a board member for the organization.
In addition to her own creative work, Schwankl restores statues, having done so for both individual clients and churches throughout the region.
