Meet the Prof:Gail Panske
The following faculty Q&A was submitted by the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Faculty Advocacy Committee, a committee of the Faculty Senate. Jeff Lipschutz, professor of painting and drawing, wrote the introduction.
Gail is an artist of integrity and striking originality with a distinguished record of national and international exhibitions and residencies. She is a consummate teacher, the leader of our printmaking area and a tireless organizer of local artistic events. Gail is someone who, through her attentiveness to and concern for her colleagues both within and beyond her home department, holds our campus together.
For many years, she has played a lead role in galvanizing our local art community, while continuing to develop as an artist and achieve growing professional success. That might be her you sometimes see biking around town, helmet on and head down, so I won’t say hats off to my respected colleague, but I will say I’m proud to know her.
