After a long and commendable career at UW-Green Bay, Professor Christine Style (Art and Visual Design) is retiring. Her colleagues had this to say about her time at UW-Green Bay:
As a teacher with more than 30 years experience, Professor Style commands a breadth of knowledge in printmaking, drawing & foundations. She has always exhibited an ability to foster students’ development through difficult & involved technical processes. Professor Style has made significant efforts to make a path for her students from the classroom to the community including but not limited to numerous public printing events, print conferences, exhibitions and field trips. Most notably, she has taken students to study printmaking at the Santa Reparata International School for the Arts in Florence Italy for more than 25 years.
She has additionally been steadfast in her ability to maintain a meaningful artistic exhibition record that enlivens the print world, regionally, nationally and internationally. Professor Style’s layered works draw from history, world cultures, personal narratives and mythology to unfold rich compositions for the viewer. Viewers travel and process the layers as they experience her expertly crafted print works.
As an experienced, involved and aware citizen of UW-Green Bay, Professor Style has made significant contributions to the Art discipline serving several terms as chair as well as actively participated as a valuable member of scholarship committees, mentoring untenured faculty, lending expertise to the Lawton Gallery and numerous search committees. At the university level she has contributed her expertise and knowledge to countless university-wide committees. Her understanding of the precarious position of the Arts & her willingness to advocate for the study of Art and the needs of Art & Design make her a voice that will be missed on campus.
