Danny Casper by Scott KolboThe Koehler Gallery at Whitworth College will present a Whitworth Faculty Art Exhibit March 3-April 17. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public. An artists' reception will be held on Tuesday, March 4, from 5-7 p.m. in the Koehler Gallery. The artists will discuss their work at 6 p.m. during the reception. For more information, please call (509) 777-3275.

The faculty exhibit will feature an eclectic mix of paintings and drawings, mixed media, artists' books, photography, ceramic sculpture and stained glass. The works were created by full-time Whitworth faculty and adjunct instructors, including Scott Kolbo, Gordon Wilson, Barbara Filo, Jeff Harris, and Carl Stejer.

The exhibit gives Whitworth students and the Spokane community an opportunity to view the current work of Whitworth's art professors.

"It is an ideal time for people to see the strengths of the department, and to discover new instructors and media they might not have known they could learn in our department," says Scott Kolbo, assistant professor of art. "This exhibit is always a mixed bag of ideas and interests; it is a great celebration of all the talent and diversity the Whitworth Art Department exemplifies."
