MANITOWOC, WIs. -- The Silver Lake College art department will present the exhibit, “Photography by Nic Paasch,” from Feb. 20 through March 17 in the Du Charme Erdmann Gallery on campus, 2406 S. Alverno Road.
An artist’s talk will begin at 6 p.m. on Feb. 28 and an artist’s reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on March 1. The talk, reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.
Paasch is a 33-year-old photographer from Manitowoc who specializes in portraiture photography including weddings, families and couples. He also enjoys taking time to focus on his fine art photographs.
“Photography is a reflection of reality. I try to capture the feeling, emotion, and true beauty of the subjects and scenes I photograph,” said Paasch in his artist’s statement.
“I was introduced to Nic a few years ago through a colleague,” said Erin LaBonte, associate professor of art for Silver Lake College. “He has since been a visiting critic at SLC for a senior exhibit and has joined my photography class as a guest speaker. I’m look forward to Nic’s exhibit. It will set a great example for students in Digital Photography and Digital Imaging, two classes that are offered this semester in the art department. He has an awesome ability to transform the everyday into unique compositions.”
Paasch graduated from Manitowoc’s Lincoln High School in 2002 and joined the U.S. Navy. After being honorably discharged in 2007, he moved back to Manitowoc and started his photography education at the University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc.
He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in photography from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Paasch now owns and operates NP Photography, based in Manitowoc.
Silver Lake College gallery hours are from 8 to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Some of Paasch’s works will be for sale at the exhibit.
