PAINTING EXHIBIT TO OPEN JAN. 7
Portraits by painter Amanda Joseph will be on exhibit beginning Monday, Jan. 7, in the Grace Albrecht Gallery of Bluffton University’s Sauder Visual Arts Center.
The exhibit is free and open to the public through Jan. 27. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 1-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The gallery will also host a reception with the artist from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 13.
Joseph’s portraits—many of them oil on panel—include a series in which she explores the intersection of class, race and gender through the lens of a complex set of social experiences of young adults.
