Mount Marty College

Mount Marty College Bede Art Gallery will be hosting artist, Jeff Ballard, and his acrylic paintings entitled, “Defining Purpose”, that will be on display January 8 through January 31st.  A free reception and gallery talk is scheduled for January 31st from 2:00 to 4:00 PM and open to the public.

Ballard says of his inspiration for his exhibit, “Working for my family’s small asphalt paving and maintenance company has required a lot of time spent repairing broken-down equipment. In my many attempts at accurately assembling parts in front of me, I’ve learned a lot about the necessary process of trial and error when seeking the correct solution, in this case a fully functioning piece of machinery. I see this process as a good metaphor for the quest in discovering my life’s purpose. In this body of work, I combine parts diagrams with people from my life in an effort to represent their dealings with questions about the metaphysical realm.”

The hours for the Bede Gallery Art Gallery are 8 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday, and it is located in the lobby of the Marian Auditorium.
