This is the last day to see Rick McNary's exhibit "Doing Good with Wood" in the Regier Art Gallery, with the closing reception tonight, Thursday, Sept. 16, 6- 8 p.m.

So how did a man probably best known for his efforts to combat world hunger end up with an exhibit in the Bethel gallery?

Surprisingly – or maybe not so much – those two facts are related.

Through Sept. 16, the gallery in Luyken Fine Arts Center on the Bethel campus is home to “Doing Good with Wood,” turned wood pieces by Rick McNary of Potwin.
