The public is invited to the Bethany College Autumn Student Art Exhibition, now on display at Mingenback Art Center Gallery on the Bethany College campus. Sponsored by the Bethany College Art Department, the show features 81 works by students currently enrolled in art classes.

“Because the show is self-selecting, not juried, this is an opportunity for students to choose what they feel is their best work to exhibit,” said Caroline Kahler, chair of the art department. “We encourage students who aren’t 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. A closing reception for the artists and the public will be held Wednesday, Nov. 17 from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the Mingenback Art Center.

Students taking Gallery Practice class installed the exhibition under the direction of instructor, Professor Ed Pogue.
