Art Reception

Friday, October 31st 2014 - 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm at Mount Marty College
1105 W 8th St

Mount Marty College Bede Art Gallery will be hosting artist, Sandi Parish, and her water colors exhibit entitled, “Horses” and “Children,” will be on display from September 29 to October 31.  A free reception and gallery talk is scheduled for October 31 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM and open to the public.

According to Parish, “As an artist I work hard to create paintings that speak both to me and those that view them. I paint towards the light of God in some of my spiritual pictures, such as a little cowboy standing on a fence. I create drawings with bright, water color pencils of old, broken down trucks that my dad and I used to drive when I was a country girl growing up on the farm in Nebraska.”

“I also love to draw and paint horses using water color pencils,” continues Parish.  “Recreating is a challenge. My artwork speaks not only to me, but of a spiritual sense of color and of the past and of the present.”

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.
