Mercer Gallery Exhibit Opening Sept. 6

Mercer Gallery Hosting Sculpture Exhibition by Fort Hays State University Students

The Mercer Gallery of Art is pleased to host students and faculty from Fort Hays State University for its first exhibit of the 2019-2020 academic year.

EGG Gravy/Ben is Fat is a compilation of visually-stimulating diverse work from 10 FHSU students, both undergraduates and graduates, who work under the guidance of Tobias Flores and Danielle Robinson, instructors in the FHSU Department of Art & Design.

An opening reception will be held this Friday, Sept. 6, from 5 to 7 p.m., and will be held in conjunction with other First Friday Artist openings at Garden City Arts, High Plains Public Radio, Patrick Dugan's Coffee Shop, and the Finney County Courthouse. The month-long exhibit will continue through Sept. 27 at the Mercer Galley, located inside the Pauline Joyce Fine Arts Building and free and open to the public.

The FHSU guests will also be demonstrating their sculpting techniques during a live demo this Friday (Sept. 6) from 1 to 4 p.m., which is also free and open to the public.

FHSU's sculpture program is regionally and nationally renowned for their foundry work, including both blacksmithing and metal-casting. The work showcased in EGG Gravy/Ben is Fat will range from very representational to very abstract and will showcase some of the best artwork in the FHSU sculpture program, according to Michael Knutson, GCCC art instructor and gallery director.

The Mercer Gallery hours are as follows: Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Thursday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For information regarding this month's exhibition or gallery, please contact Knutson at or 620-276-9644.

Garden City Community College exists to produce positive contributors to the economic and social well-being of society.
