Bethany College Art Department will host a gallery exhibit by Christina Engel, senior, of McPherson, beginning May 2 through May 8. The exhibit will feature works of ceramic, painting and prints. An opening reception and gallery talk will take place Sunday, May 4 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Mingenback’s art gallery, located at Second and Olsson Streets in Lindsborg.
The gallery is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
Engel will be showcasing her works that have evolved throughout her time at Bethany College. She creates functional pottery in hopes that the piece will be used and loved by whoever picks it up, bringing the artist and patron together. Her relatively small, but detailed paintings are often moody, tense scenarios that ask the viewer to take a closer look.
