Young Artists Celebration and Reception

Young Artist Celebration and Reception 7/14/18

View works created in the Young Artists Program. Refreshments will be served. Open to the public. 11:00 am- noon.  Exhibit now open for viewing until 7/14/18!

Young Artists is an annual summer program held at the Beach Museum of Art.  This summer the younger artists visited the galleries to learn about wet and dry media and then had the opportunity to experiment with a variety of professional art media.

Older artists explored the permanent collection and participated in one or more of four special workshops: Painting Landscapes, Pastel Still Life, Abstract Printmaking, and Drawing Portraits.

Art Faculty Exhibition, ‘Here, and Now.’ Open

The works in this exhibition represent the studio practices of fifteen members of the Kansas State University Department of Art. These works, made within the last two years and varying in concept and construction, feature the disciplines of ceramics, drawing, fibers, graphic design, painting, photography, sculpture, and new media. The artists are a diverse group from across the nation and around the world, who now call Manhattan, Kansas, home.

Participating faculty members are Kevin Bernstein, Carlos Castellanos, Geraldine Craig, Nicholas Geankoplis, Matthew Gaynor, Rebecca Hackemann, Daniel Hunt, Shreepad Joglekar, Nancy Morrow, Mervi Pakaste, Teresa S. Schmidt, Jason Scuilla, Daniel Warner, Erin Wiersma, and Dukno Yoon.
