Arts at Allen will kick off Monday with student artists displaying their work for the community. The Allen Community College art department will have its artwork on display Monday through Friday at the Mary L. Martin Gallery at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center as part of the event. Arts at Allen is a three-part event that showcases the art, music and theater departments at Allen.
“There will be a variety of pieces,” Tera Reid, ACC art instructor said. “We’ll have work from drawing, painting, and photography students. There is not just one type of medium.”
The gallery will open on Monday and be open throughout the week. At 6 p.m. on Friday there will be a reception for the art students. The reception is right before the college’s music concert.
“We’ll have refreshments like cheese, crackers and punch,” Reid said. “It is open to the public.”
Reid said that students were able to showcase their work at the gallery last fall as well.
“We know that the gallery books up fast so the Bowlus schedules us in advance,” she said. “We’re hoping to have it every year.”
Reid said this gives students the opportunity to showcase their work. Any art student who wanted to display work was allowed to do so. Reid said there are about 15 to 20 pieces in this particular show.
“The students are working very hard this semester,” she said. “There will be a lot of beginning level stuff but it’s coming along very nicely.”
The music department will have its recital at 7 p.m. in the Dale P. Creitz Recital Hall. Admission is free. Thursday through Saturday the theater department will perform “The Diary of Anne Frank,” at 7:30 p.m. at the Allen College Theatre. Admission for adults is $6, students are $4. Advance tickets may be purchased at the Iola Pharmacy.
