Cristian Andersson

Cristian Andersson is a Wisconsin painter and performance artist. He received his formal education from Columbia College in Chicago and the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Cristian primarily creates abstract oil paintings based off contemporary classical compositions. The characteristic sounds of how a musician plays an instrument, a visualization of how these instruments are sonically placed in a concert hall, as well as thematic elements that composers work with all come into play in a finished painting.

Tyla Hilfreich

Tyla Hilfreich is an Appleton, Wisconsin artist focusing on sculpture, collage, sound, writing, and collaboration, but works in painting, multimedia, photography, glass, fashion design, and film. Tyla is a full-time artist and entrepreneur, creating art and events of many expressions in and around the Fox Valley. Influences of his recent art and events include archaeology, language, science, and philosophy of the human body, mind, and spirit. He received his BFA with an emphasis in Printmaking from UW-Stout. His current mission is to shake up the Wisconsin culture through art.

We're accepting applications for future residencies.

TMA’s Artist in Residence program is intended to support each artists’ individual growth. As an extension of our Education Center, Artists in Residence are artists who facilitate a learning environment that encourages knowledge of, respect for, and development of skills to engage with students and the general public.
