Bethany art students featured in exhibit

AutumnStudentArtThe Bethany College Autumn Student Art Exhibition is currently on display at Mingenback Art Center Gallery through December 9.

Sponsored by the Bethany College Art Department, the show features 80 works by students currently enrolled in art classes.

“Because the show is self-selecting, not juried, this is an opportunity for students to choose their best work to exhibit,” said Caroline Kahler, chair of the art department. “We encourage students who aren’t art majors to enter work and hope to foster camaraderie in the department, where students support each other.”

The diverse exhibit showcases a variety of styles and different types of work including ceramics, crafts, design, drawing, painting and sculpture. Students taking gallery practice class installed the exhibition under the direction of Associate Professor of Art Ed Pogue.

The exhibition is open to the public and a reception for the artists and the public will be held Wednesday, Dec. 9 from 3-5 p.m. in the Mingenback Art Center.
