NORTH NEWTON, KAN. -- The Bethel College Fine Arts Center Gallery will feature the computer-generated images of artists John Boyd and Byron Smith. The exhibit, entitled "New Digital Images," will be on display March 3-31. Boyd and Smith are both art teachers with connections to Wichita State University. Boyd has been a professor of printmaking at WSU for more than 30 years. His imagery is influenced by the unique and straightforward qualities of "outsider" art. He earned his B.F.A. from California State University and his M.F.A. in printmaking from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Mich.
Smith is interested in the correlation between the human form and human character. He is a professional artist and high school art teacher. He earned his B.F.A. and M.Ed. from WSU.
There will be a reception for the artists outside the gallery on Friday, Mar. 3, from 2-4 p.m. Both will be present to answer questions about their work.
The Fine Arts Center Gallery is open Mon.-Fri., 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday from 2-4 p.m. (it will be closed March 19-26 for the college’s spring break). Admission to the artists’ reception and the gallery is free and open to the public.
