LINDSBORG, KAN., February 27, 2012— Bethany College senior artist Suzy Lindsay, Hillsboro Kan.,will exhibit her Senior Art Show, entitled “The Reveal,” at the Mingenback Art Center at Bethany from March 8 to 13. A reception in her honor will be held on Sunday, March 11, from 2 to 4 p.m. with a gallery talk by the artist at 2:30 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
Lindsay is a studio art major with an emphasis in drawing. Her work consists of graphite, ink, watercolor, oil painting, print making, and black and white photography. Lindsay is inspired by a variety of subjects but focuses mainly on the human figure and flowers.
“Most of my work is in black and white because I feel that the extreme contrast achieved by ink or graphite is very dynamic,” explains Lindsay. Her figure drawings feature one girl who hides her face or keeps her back to the audience. Another consistent theme in her work is the use of flowers.
Lindsay has previously studied at Kansas State University and tranferred to Bethany after “falling in love with the art department.”
The Mingenback Art Center, located on the corner of Olsson and Second Street on the Bethany College campus, is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily during the academic year. Mingenback houses the premier center for art instruction in the region and a gallery devoted to the work of regional artists, Bethany college students and alumni. The Bethany College Art Department recognizes that open and rigorous inquiry is essential to a liberal-arts education
