 “Point of View:

1. The place or position from which one views an object, situation, etc.

2. An attitude or set of principles or ideas by which one looks at, judges, or evaluates a person, circumstance, situation, etc.” Funk & Wagnalls Standard College Dictionary

The Gallery at Sams Hall of Fine Arts at Kansas Wesleyan University is excited to announce the upcoming exhibit, “Point of View.”  The exhibit features the artwork of community artists chosen by Ron Michael, Director of the Birger Sandzen Memorial Gallery in Lindsborg.  High school through adult artists were invited to submit their work based on their interpretation of the theme, providing a unique opportunity to bring together diverse ages and groups of artists to showcase their artwork. Two and three-dimensional work will be presented in the exhibit.

Artwork will be for sale and the artists will be donating a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Kansas Wesleyan Art and Design Department and the Robbin Ward Scholarship Fund.  Robbin Ward was a Design student who was killed in a car accident during her senior year.  The Art and Design Department awards scholarships to aspiring art students from this fund.

The juror, Ron Michael has been the Director of the Birger Sandzén Memorial Gallery in Lindsborg since April of 2014.  Prior to that, he served as Curator there for 17 years.  He is also an artist and has exhibited in many regional and national exhibitions; taught courses at Bethany College and the University of Kansas; juried numerous art competitions; and been associated with several regional arts organizations.

In the spring of 2000, Michael received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics from KU.  He also has a degree in Library Science from Emporia State University and two undergraduate degrees from Fort Hays State University.
