New shows open in PSU galleries

Two new shows will open in the Pittsburg State University art galleries this week. Taking Time, an exhibition of the works of Pittsburg artists Sherri Lindsay and Gregg Krepps, will open April 7 in the University Gallery in Porter Hall, where it will run through May 8. A reception for the artists will be held from 5-8 p.m. on April 7. A special guest at the reception will be Mrs. Lilly Keeney, who will be celebrating her 94th birthday. Mrs. Keeney is an accomplished artist in her own right and is the wife of the late Bert Keeney, a former faculty member.

Lindsay and Krepps share an affinity and obsession with time and materials. Lindsay designs intricate and detailed surfaces for her sculptural forms and functional boxes or pins from thousands of tiny pieces of egg shells. Krepps creates his ceramic pieces using an intensive burnishing technique that requires countless hours of patience and persistence.

Departures is a show of the work of Amanda Hood. It runs April 8-13 in the second floor Student Gallery in Porter Hall. A reception for the artist will be held from 6-8 p.m. on April 8.

Hood captures an intimate landscape in an otherwise sterile and transitory environment. Using airport imagery, the artist draws upon memories and emotions to create oil paintings that are rich in light and texture.

The University Gallery is open from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Student Gallery is open from 8 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Fridays. Admission to the galleries is free.
