Art faculty featured in gallery

Faculty and emeritus faculty members in the Hesston College art department are the featured artists in the college’s Regier Friesen Gallery through Sept. 6.

Faculty member Hanna Eastin, ceramics instructor, is presenting stoneware sculptures. Lois Misegadis, who teaches drawing, painting, photography and graphic design and is chair of the art department, is featuring her project entitled “Honor to These,” a mixed-media collection of portraits of American heroes.

Faculty emeritus Paul Friesen, who founded the college’s art department in 1957 and for whom the building and gallery are named, has several wood sculptures on display.

A reception and chance for the public to meet the artists and hear about the inspiration for their pieces will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Sept. 6 in the gallery.

The gallery, located in the Friesen Center for the Visual Arts, is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
