Bethany College senior artist Alexandria DeLong will exhibit her senior art show, “Caesura,” from today through Tuesday at Mingenback Art Center on campus.
A reception will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday with a gallery talk by the artist at 2:30 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public
DeLong, from Admire, is majoring in art education pre-kindergarten-12 with a double focus in ceramics and painting. This exhibition will consist of her recent work unveiling the passion and attentiveness she conveys within her creative process.
DeLong is currently creating large non-objective paintings, emphasizing the relationship of color and space. In her ceramic work, DeLong focuses on the aspect of functional pottery, especially mugs and bowls. She is pushing her capability with the variation of her form and character of each piece.
DeLong’s work emphasizes flexibility and reacting with each step of the process, both in painting and ceramics. Movement is a constant within the concept of her artwork and has deeply influenced her current path of making.
Mingenback Art Center is on the corner of Olsson and Second streets on the Bethany College campus.
It is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mingenback houses the premier center for art instruction in the region and a gallery devoted to the work of regional artists and Bethany College students and alumni.
The Bethany College Art Department recognizes that open and rigorous inquiry is essential to a liberal-arts education. Because art reflects life, art made and displayed within the Mingenback Art Center may address mature themes.
