Talking Art with Pat Beréskin and Brian Nikulski

Ways To Subscribe

A partnership between artist and art educator Pat Beréskin and Brian Nikulski, President of Nikulski Financial, Inc., has led to a gallery of commissioned paintings that now grace the walls of the new Nikulski Financial office building in Bettendorf, IA.

A group of thirteen local artists created over 50 paintings in total, working in a variety of mediums and guided by the theme of water. The paintings are arranged in a seasonal progression throughout the new office space.

Listen to the conversation here with Brian Nikulski and Pat Beréskin about the thematic approach they used to create this collection, the importance of businesses investing in local artists, and the sense of well-being that beautiful art creates.

The public is invited to attend an open house on Fri July 14, 2023, from 5-7pm at Nikulski Financial, Inc., 4275 Ontario Drive in Bettendorf. Come view the gallery while enjoying food and drink!

This is the first of a two-part series exploring collaborations between our local business and artistic communities.
