The library is hosting the “Painters III” exhibit from February 23 to April 20. Artists Christine Geiger, Kenna Kuehn and Marcus Mihelcic have created 39 pieces of art showcasing a range of topics from environmental and conservation issues to political ones.

Geiger, who created 12 of the 39 pieces on display, focused on her love for the ocean.

“Agua is a theme I began in Painting 300, when I really started to take courses that were related to my major of aquarium and zoo science,” she noted in a release highlighting the exhibit opening.

“I realized my love for the ocean, and the beauty that can be seen beneath it.”

Kuehn created 17 paintings in a three-week time span while visiting Italy. What inspired her art was the landscape – walking through the Italian community where she stayed helped her creative vision.

“In Italy, the people distinguish their homes by decorating their front doors,” noted Kuehn. “I took the idea and ran with it.

“I love walking through town, exploring the most amazing textures, colors and geometrics. I love texture.”

Being fascinated with her new surroundings, Kuehn said that some of her pieces were experiments with wood and stone.

In Mihelcic’s pieces, he tries to diagnose the American political climate, showing the human condition through a lens of metaphysics.

“When the senseless tragedy that is selfishness consumes our minds every waking moment, we have a responsibility to fight the normalization of ignorance in pursuit of mindfulness,” noted Mihelcic.

He said his 12 paintings are not an “escape from reality,” but rather, a return to an “all-real memory.”

Each of the paintings in the exhibit is available for purchase.
