Art Exhibit Deeply Rooted to open Monday
March 27, 2014
Wabash College Art Department will host its next exhibit, Deeply Rooted. The March 31-May 18 show will be in the Eric Dean Gallery. A 7-8:30 p.m. public reception will be held Monday, March 31. Artists Justin Johnson and Randy Horst will give gallery talks at 7:30 p.m. during the opening reception.
The Deeply Rooted exhibition will feature three visual artists working in a variety of mixed media who draw inspiration from their deeply rooted spirituality, an inextricable part of their lives and creative explorations. Sandra Bowden uses three-dimensional books for her painting surface to alter image and text into her personal iconography. Randy Horst plays with visual information in his drawings and mixed media collages to reveal how an object or shape can mean more than one thing at the same time. Justin Johnson conveys historical, classical, and spiritual subjects as contemporary icons utilizing graphite, acrylic wash, gold on glass, and collage.
The Eric Dean Gallery is located on the south end of the Fine Arts Center. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public and is handicap accessible.
