Description

Born in America's heartland, Mark Wilkens' passion for nature and the environment blossomed in the sun-drenched countryside of the Iowan farmlands. Mark traveled often following his schooling in Iowa, Arizona and South Dakota, using the opportunity to visit museums and learn about different cultures. In 1990, after a number of years painting independently and working in graphics and illustration, Mark moved to Michigan which would serve as his creative home for nearly 27 years.

On March 17, 2017 Mark Wilkens passed away. This exhibition includes 25 works of art from the last three decades of his career, including a variety of watercolors and oils. It honors a passionate artist, whose commitment to paint was evident throughout his life.

Please support the Mark W. Wilkens and Carmen L. Nochera-Wilkens Endowed Scholarship at GVSU (gvsu.edu/giving/wilkens). All of the works of art in the exhibition are available for purchase in direct support of the above-named scholarship: gvsu.edu/giving/wilkensnochera-art-scholarship-fundraiser-530.htm
