BeyondTheSurfaceBethany College senior artist Kelsey Himes will exhibit her senior art show, “Beyond the Surface,” at Mingenback Art Center on campus from April 11 to 16.

The show is a compilation of Himes’ four years at Bethany College and will contain paintings, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, and printmaking. A reception will be held on Sunday, April 14, 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.

Himes, from Eureka, Kan., is majoring in studio art with an emphasis in sculpture. Through her career at Bethany, Himes has taken advantage of all of the disciplines the art department has to offer, including ceramics, printmaking, drawing, and painting.

After graduation this May, Himes looks forward to finding an opportunity that will draw upon all the skills she has acquired within the art department. She strives to travel the world and Enduring Everlasting Fireset up her own studio, where she could produce artwork that reflects upon her experiences.

Mingenback Art Center is located on the corner of Olsson and Second Street on the Bethany College campus. It is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mingenback houses the premier center for art instruction in the region and a gallery devoted to the work of regional artists and Bethany College students and alumni. The Bethany College Art Department recognizes that open and rigorous inquiry is essential to a liberal-arts education. Because art reflects life, art made and displayed within the Mingenback Art Center may address mature themes.
