Awarded watercolor landscape artist Thomas McNickle exhibiting his works at Thiel College

GREENVILLE, Pa.—Artist Thomas McNickle will display paintings from his collection, “Works Revisited,” at Thiel College’s Weyers-Sampson Gallery through December 9.

His exhibition opens with a gallery talk at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23.

McNickle is an elected member of the American, National, Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh watercolor societies. His work has been awarded more than 25 medals in national juried exhibitions across the country and has been included in more than 100 juried exhibitions.

Exhibits at Weyers-Sampson Gallery are free and open to the public.

Gallery hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays: 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The gallery will be closed from Nov. 27 to Dec. 1 for Thanksgiving break.

For appointments or more information, contact Professor of Art and Thiel College Curator of Art Sean McConnor at 724-589-2095.

McNickle graduated from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania (Edinboro, Pa.) with a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in education. He has taught at Neshannock School District and at Youngstown State University and Westminster College. He has also led classes at the Butler Institute of American Art (Youngstown, Ohio), Hoyt Institute of Fine Arts (New Castle, Pa.) and several classes and workshops around the country.

“I work both in the studio and on location, painting watercolors (outdoors) which serve as studies for larger watercolors and oil done in the studio,” McNickle said. “As the studio works unfold, they provide an access to my memory of the time and place... not a literal visual memory, but a kind of organic memory that allows me to return and re-experience it in totally new ways.”
