“Story Tellers” Gallery Talk

Friday, March 27th 2015 - 2:00 pm at Mount Marty College
1105 W 8th St

Mount Marty College’s Bede Art Gallery is hosting Connie Herring and her exhibit, “Story Tellers.” The exhibit runs through March 27. A reception and gallery talk for the artist is scheduled for March 27 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM and open to the public. The gallery is located in Bede Hall across from Marian Auditorium. Free parking is available in the west parking lot.

Herring’s “Story Tellers” is an art installation involving ironing board sculptures, their covers, and a book of drawings on handmade paper. The ironing boards stand on end, or hang on the walls, each telling its own story of human spirit and myth. First inspired by the Gothic church window, Herring chose the ironing board because of its shape. My initial thought was to project the stories of nature on the boards, but as the project progressed other connections were discovered – other stories.

Herring comments, “My installations and sculptures are in constant search for the essence of life. They deal with the spirit and the relationships between all things. They search for quiet places.”
The installation is flexible and changes with each site. It can fit small and large spaces depending on the number of boards installed and their positioning. The installation also continues to grow as new boards are added, and drawings are completed.

The Bede Art Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. For more information on the Bede Art Gallery please visit or contact Director, David Kahle, at 605-668-1574 or
