For the third year, the Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay has announced its 2023 Dome House Al & Mickey Quinlan Artist-in-Residence, selecting Christopher T. Wood.
The program, which started in 2021 after the pandemic, has taken off in its time at the Miller Art Museum. Wood is the fourth artist to be showcased in the three years of existence. Artists Nicole Shaver and Ariana Vaeth of Milwaukee and Amy Usdin of Minneapolis have all had their careers transformed while being the artist that had the museum dedicated around their work.
Wood, a Milwaukee-based artist, received an MFA in Painting from Northern Illinois University in 2005 and his BFA in Visual Communication Design with a concentration in Illustration, from the University of Dayton in 2001. He will be given a $500 stipend and receive access to time, space, and resources to advance his work. Wood was selected from a pool of 24 candidates by the program’s Artist Selection Committee.
Wood’s work is made up of drawings consisting of powdered graphite and complex shading that form creations that can easily be seen. He has exhibited internationally in two different countries and was the 2022-2023 Artist-in-Residence at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee.
Wood will be in residence in Door County from August 1st to September 25th.
