A public reception on Friday, Nov. 6, for artists and craftsmen will kick off the final weekend of two exhibits currently at Fort Hays State University's Moss-Thorns Gallery of Art.
The reception is from 7-9 p.m. at the gallery, in Rarick Hall, room 102, on the FHSU campus.
The two exhibits, "KACA Members Exhibit" and "Material Mastery: The Discipline of Skill," went up Oct. 16 in preparation for the Kansas Artist Craftsman Association conference which begins Friday and continues through Saturday. About 80 artists and craftsmen have registered.
The exhibits close Saturday, Nov. 7.
The exhibition and conference are a "celebration of hands-on learning and creativity," said Linda Ganstrom, FHSU professor of art and design and conference coordinator. Attendees at the conference can attend workshops and lectures and see more than 75 pieces of art created from craft materials.
