The Marxhausen Gallery of Art at Concordia University, Nebraska, announced its art exhibition schedule for the 2021-22 academic year. The gallery hosts a number of regional and nationally acclaimed art exhibitions, as well as faculty and student shows.

“We are pleased to offer a variety of dynamic exhibitions this year for a wide range of audiences,” said professor Jim Bockelman, the gallery’s director. “For the first time, we’re hosting an alumni art exhibition during Homecoming weekend, and it’s wonderful to see a tremendous response so far. Particularly with the diversity of art and artifacts that people have sent to the gallery, all of which remind me of their ongoing commitment to the significance of art in its variety of expression.”

The gallery’s mission is to provide local and regional communities with opportunities to appreciate and understand the role of art and culture through its collection, exhibition programs and educational opportunities.

All exhibits are open to the public and free of charge. The Marxhausen Gallery is located in Jesse Hall and is open Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters while classes are in session. Admission is free to the public.
