Julia Olson, "Morocco"

The exhibition currently in Bethel College’s Regier Art Gallery reflects a winding road through different parts of the world and different expressions of one person’s art.

Julia Olson’s exhibit “Hidden Conversations through Portraiture” will be in the gallery through Nov. 18, with the artist reception on Nov. 17 at the gallery in Luyken Fine Arts Center.

Gallery hours are Mon.-Fri., 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, 2-4 p.m.

Olson began drawing “faces that made sense” at age 2. She pursued an art education, studying illustration with an emphasis on fashion.
