Freyberger Gallery presents Mark Marchlinski:Teacher as Artist/Artist as Teacher

The Penn State Berks Freyberger Gallery will present Mark Marchlinski: Teacher as Artist/Artist as Teacher, from September 9 to October 15, 2010. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 9, at 6:00 p.m. in the Freyberger Gallery. This event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served.

Marchlinski developed a unique style in creating art that combined electro-plating metals to paper, burnishing, and acid etching to produce both large and small works. This exhibit showcases that unique style.

Marchlinski earned a bachelor's degree in fine art from Kutztown University in 1977 and he went on to earn his master's degree in fine art form the University of Washington. After ten years of residing in Fairbanks, Alaska, where he was active on the state's Council on the Arts and recipient of a Fellowship in the Arts, he and his wife moved to Tennessee. Marchlinski taught at the University of Huntsville in Alabama until he had a major brain aneurysm in 1990. He spent the next ten years of his life in a nursing home before passing away in 2009.

The Freyberger Gallery is open Monday through Thursday, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Thursday evenings until 8:00 p.m.; and Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
