Four Concordia faculty members will exhibit original pieces of art in the Marxhausen Gallery of Art from Feb. 12 to March 17. There will be an opening reception from 1-4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 12 with an artist talk at 2 p.m. in the gallery.

“The biennial exhibit of faculty art work is a common occurrence on most campuses throughout the United States,” said James Bockelman, director of the Marxhausen. “It provides an opportunity for the campus and Seward community to see the recent results of current research being completed by Concordia’s art department. It provides the art faculty with a public forum in which they can present their ideas and potentially receive feedback from their academic peers and the surrounding community.”

The art work in this exhibition will include large scale ceramic sculpture, printed images, one of a kind mixed media work and some paintings. The faculty represented in the exhibition include Justin Groth, Don Robson, Seth Boggs and James Bockelman.

One highlight of the exhibit includes five large works on paper by Robson. “This body of work is my continue exploration and interest in the challenging dynamics of relationships,” said Don Robson. “I have chosen to incorporate simple mathematical equations and idioms to address and bring them to a visual.”

The exhibit is open to the public and free of charge. The Marxhausen Gallery is located in Jesse Hall and is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday–Friday and 1 – 4 p.m. on Sunday.
