Event details

In the University Gallery, the exhibit “Department of Art Faculty: Recent Work” is on display through April 30. It highlights creative works produced by the current studio art faculty in the department and showcases a range of media that celebrates creative research and the art-making process. 

It includes: 

  • Floral paintings, such as “A Series of Poppies” by James Oliver, department chair, inspired by his gardens. 
  • Mixed media by Kim Allison, who enjoys incorporating stories into her art. One of her works, “January,” draws on her experience as a sketch artist for cross stitch kits and features felt appliqué and embroidery.  
  • A series of several clay tile relief works by Associate Professor Malcolm Kucharski. 
  • Work by Instructor Janet Lewis that reflects the events of 2020 and their impact, from a sculpture called “Out of Balance” to a photo story called “How the Mighty Have Fallen.”  
  • Works on loan from the estate of Paulus Berensohn, who is the subject of a book being written by Professor S. Portico Bowman. 

Also on display through March 30 are two side-by-side photography exhibits by faculty in the Harry Krug Gallery. Admission to the galleries is free; they are open to the public from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays. Masks are required. For more information: 620-235-4302.
