New genre art featured in Regier Friesen Gallery

Greenville (Ill.) College art professor Jacob Amundson works with alternative and new genre media in his art show titled “#Blessed&Depressed,” featured in Hesston College’s Regier Friesen Gallery, located in the Friesen Center for Visual Arts, through April 15.

“This body of work represents explorations over the past year in subverting my own wrestling with depression, the calling of the studio, and the gift of being an artist,” said Amundson in his artist statement.

Amundson has taught at Greenville College since 2006. He graduated from Greenville with a bachelor’s degree in fine art with emphasis in painting and graphic design. He earned a masters of fine arts in new genre from Azusa (Calif.) Pacific University.

The Regier Freisen Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
