WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2017

8:00 AM - 9:00 PM                                   Art Exhibits                                     
                 Various Locations (D4 and D2)

Two exhibits will be located in the Metcalf Visual Arts Center, 'Clay and Kindred Spirits' in the Metcalf Galleria and a collection of works by Taylor University Art Faculty in the Tyndale Galleria.  In addition, a special exhibit of paintings by Taylor graduate Jessica (Miles '04) Green will be on display in the Alspaugh East and West Banquet Rooms of the Hodson Dining Commons.

The current work of Susan Nace, Martin Price and John Reishus can be seen in the Modelle Metcalf Visual Arts Gallery.  The pieces are a culmination of over 35 years working with clay.  While each artist has a distinct method and style, their work in clay and their love for the Lord unite them.  It is their hope that this show, Clay & Kindred Spirits, is a true reflection of the relationships they have with each other and with God.
