Three art faculty from Fort Hays State University were invited to exhibit their work at the Kansas Governor's Inaugural Art Exhibition on Jan. 7 and 8 in Topeka.
Linda Ganstrom, professor, Mick Jilg, professor, and Gordan Sherman, associate professor, were among 40 artists from across the state. The exhibition was hosted in a replica of the original governor's mansion at the Ramada Inn.
Two other artists with FHSU ties were also invited. Frank Nichols is a professor emeritus and Bruce Burkholder is an FHSU art graduate.
A book titled "Not by Bread Alone, A Sampling of Kansas Food, Art and Culture" was created for the inaugural and featured Nichols' hand-colored etching, "Prairie Springs."
Ganstrom and her husband, Sheldon, will also exhibit their sculptures in an exhibition of "Creative Couples" at the Armstrong Gallery during the month of February in Pomona, Calif.
