Flickinger selected to appear in New American Paintings magazine


Selected from almost 1,000 applicants, Cowley College art instructor Mark Flickinger will have his work featured in New American Paintings, No. 108, Western Issue.

 The bi-monthly magazine should be on newsstands in November and will feature three full-page full color images and a bio page.

Flickinger entered his work as part of New American Paintings’ open competition. Featured artists are selected on the basis of artistic merit and provided space for free.

With more than 5,000 artists reviewed annually, New American Paintings has become one of America’s largest and most important series of artist competitions.

Flickinger has been at Cowley College since 2001 as an instructor of Art History, Painting, and Drawing. He completed a sabbatical in 2009 where he painted, on location, from Yosemite to Newfoundland. The resulting body of work, some 75 paintings and drawings, were exhibited at American Legacy Gallery in Kansas City, MO.

Flickinger then teamed with Slade Griffiths, Cowley College vice president of academic affairs, to give a presentation entitled “The Sabbatical, Making it Count for Faculty and Institution” at the National Institute of Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) conference in 2011.

He has shown his work in many galleries across the country, including Axis in Philadelphia, Browns in Boise, Idaho and Jay-Addington in Chicago, as well as having solo exhibitions at Exhibit A Gallery in Savannah, GA.

His paintings are included in many private public collections across America and abroad.
