"Classifieds" Art Exhibit Opened Reception Rescheduled

The “Classifieds” art exhibit featuring the multimedia artwork of local artist Kevin Wadzinski, and sponsored by Bethel College's visual arts department, has been rescheduled due to weather. The opening reception exhibit will be Jan. 20 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Weaver Art Gallery. The display will be available for viewing Jan. 21 through Feb. 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., but will be closed on Sundays.

"There's a little bit of everything — collage, painting, drawing, photography, sculpture — it's all fairly poppy and cartoony,” said Wadzinski. “The title of this show has multiple meanings in relation to the artwork. Classified can refer to something secret, or unknowable to all but a privileged few. It is also the title for the section of the newspaper that directly deals with the needs and desires of the people in that community. At its root, it means to divide and organize."

The exhibit is located inside the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center and is free and open to the public. For questions, contact the department of visual arts at 574.807.7022.
