Lynn RichardsonLynn Richardson, an adjunct instructor of fine art at Park University, is exhibiting a series of her art, titled “Different Views” in the Campanella Gallery on the University’s Parkville Campus through Friday, Feb. 23. Admission to the gallery, located within Norrington Center, is free. A reception for the artist will be held Friday, Jan. 19, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Gallery.

The body of work in Richardson’s exhibit represents many different mediums, including graphite, ink, paint and photography, dating back to 2009. “My work is about finding the smallest detail in what I am creating,” Richardson said. “I like to explore interesting objects and then render the curious nuances that are contained on the surface. I accomplish this by blowing up the image of the object to more than five times its normal size and then complete in various mediums.”

Richardson, a resident of Kansas City, Mo., previously held a solo exhibition in the Campanella Gallery in 2009, and was part of a group exhibit in 2010. She earned a Master of Liberal Arts degree from Baker University and a Bachelor of Science degree in art from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

          •  Through Friday, Jan. 12 — winter break hours: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
