Nic Tisdale, full-time instructor in foundations, digital art and printmaking, has had two prints selected for exhibitions in the Midwest. His color lithograph, Trylla: Troll Stories #1, was selected for an international juried exhibition, Ink Matters, at the Indiana University’s IU Kokomo Downtown Gallery, on exhibit March 6-21, 2020. And his print titled Excised #11, an altered digital print and acrylic ink drawing, was included in the group invitational exhibition, Ossuary, at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design’s (MIAD) Frederick Layton Gallery, January 13 – March 7, 2020.

Tisdale received an MFA and MA in graphics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a BFA from the University of Montevallo. He earned a certification in Web Development from Madison College. His work has been shown at galleries, art centers and universities across the South and Midwest including solo exhibitions at Martin Hall Gallery (Mobile, Ala.) and Marian Acree Tucker Gallery (Marion, Ala.); and group exhibitions at Herron Gallery of IUIPUI (Indianapolis, Ind.), University of Tennessee Downtown Gallery (Knoxville, Tenn.), and Overture Center for the Arts (Madison, Wis.). Tisdale’s work focuses on the visual construction of meaning in portraiture and how these images attempt to exert influence on their audience.
