Alumni Highlight / Joe Sinness’ 2013/14 McKnight Visual Artists Fellowship
Joe Sinness has been selected as one of the recipients of the 2013/14 McKnight Artist Fellowships. He continues to push the limits of colored pencil on paper as he exhibits a series of still-life drawings that explore cinematic performance, sexual desire, and narcissism. The artist received his BA in studio art and English literature from St. John’s University and his MFA in studio art from MCAD. Sinness’s work has been widely exhibited around Minnesota and Wisconsin and in 2014 he will have his first international solo show in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The artist is also a 2013 recipient for the Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
