Ridgewater College Gallery (Hutchinson)

Adjacent to Commons, 2 Century Avenue SE, Hutchinson.

November 18th – December 20th 2019. Rochester Artist Simon Huelsbeck presents at Ridgewater College his exhibit titled “Swimmers”. The gallery becomes alive with a multitude of 4 foot by 4 foot portraits arranged in a grid, and painted in an expressive yet realistic fashion. Huelsbeck presents a level of theatricality in his paintings created with the method Rembrandt and Caravaggio made famous: using “tenebrism”, which means “night effects”, where the subject is almost spotlight and the background fades to darkness. The result is a foregrounding of Huelsbeck’s wonderful mastery of saturated color: hot pinks, blues and teals. Simon will be visiting the Hutchinson campus for a gallery talk at 12 P.M. Wednesday December 4th.  The exhibit will move to the Willmar campus January 6th to February 7th 2020.

The Ridgewater Fine Art Gallery is located inside the commons, on the Hutchinson Campus. Open 8 to 5 Monday-Friday.  Parking is available for visitors near the entrance. For more information contact Gallery Curator Andrew Nordin at Andrew.nordin@ridgewater.edu.
