Exploring social, political, visual and moral events, the Todd Christensen Exhibition sponsored by Creative Arts Society at Fort Hays State University will open with an artist's reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, April 29, in the Moss-Thorns Gallery of Art.
The exhibit will coincide with the annual Spring Gallery Walk.
Christensen, assistant professor of art at Highlands University, Las Vegas, N.M., is a visiting artist whose mixed media artwork deals with his observations of the world and of social interactions.
"I create a lot of work out of book covers and book pages," said Christensen. "I tend to use hundreds of smaller pieces to create a larger overall shape, similar to how life is composed of the people around me."
The Moss-Thorns Gallery of Art is located in Rarick Hall, room 102. Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, contact the Department of Art and Design at 785-628-4247 or visit www.fhsu/artanddesign.
