Students need not look far for inspiration on campus.  This spring the Iowa Hall Gallery, located on the first floor of Iowa Hall, is hosting  a variety of artists from the college and the area.

The gallery features different artists throughout the season. In January John Paul Schafer's exhibit kicked off the spring season with his refreshing acrylic paintings and paper sculptures. According to the artist, the pieces blend his passion for physics and spirituality.

Arbe Bareis, Fine and Performing Arts coordinator, was integral to the selection of the artists.

When choosing the artists for the season Bareis said, "I like to have a variety of different artists with different mediums."

Students will have the opportunity to be exposed various styles and new local artists. "I don't want all the exhibits to be all the same so it's nice to have some three-dimensional exhibits like ceramics, glass or sculpture," said Bareis.

Other artists who are next in the line-up for the showcase this spring include Kirkwood Photography Professor Helen Grunewald, along with Brenda Salat, Romona Murell and Chloe Milward Whitmore. They will be showcasing a series of photographs titled "A Photography Retrospective from the 1980s to the Present".

After the photography exhibits, the gallery will feature the "Kirkwood Student Art Exhibit". The student exhibit runs April 1 through May 3.

Bareis said, "It will enrich their lives. I think that the more artwork and the wider variety of artwork that students can look at will enhance their knowledge of art."

He added, "Some students don't want to look at other art because they don't want to be influenced by it but it's good to pull from and to be exposed to other artwork."

The gallery is open to the public.
