Dave Gilsvik is an oil landscape painter from Two Harbors. As a young artist in the 70s he made his home at the Art Colony and also studied at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the University of New Mexico. After many years of painting billboards, signs, and wall murals, one morning Dave woke up and began oil painting again and has never looked back. Dave’s paintings can be seen at Sivertson’s Gallery in Grand Marais and Siiviis in Duluth.
