Park University’s Campanella Gallery will host an exhibit of drawings, paintings and mixed media curated by Christopher Lowrance from Monday, Sept. 12, through Friday, Oct. 14. The exhibit, “The Borders of Itself,” will feature works by Misha Kligman and Kathy Liao, Kansas City, Mo., Damon Freed, Sedalia, Mo., and Stephanie Pierce, New York City.
According to Lowrance, adjunct instructor of art at Park University, “Art is a behavior, and the act of making art is a story. The artwork may imply an action or event that is a story, and it is an object that persists in time, and that is a story. The viewer and the art have a relationship and that relationship is a story. These different layers of story all happen simultaneously when one is looking at art.”
A reception for the exhibit will be held Friday, Sept. 16, from 3 to 5 p.m., in conjunction with the University’s rededication event of Norrington Center, the building which houses the Campanella Gallery.
Admission to the Campanella Gallery is free. The Gallery is open during Norrington Center’s regular hours: Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.; Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, 4 to 9:30 p.m. During the University’s Fall Recess, the building will be closed Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 8-9, and open Monday through Friday, Oct. 10-14 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
