The Malone University College of Theology, Arts, and Sciences – Department of Visual Art will present three exhibits in the galleries located on the campus at 2600 Cleveland Avenue NW in Canton, OH. Admission to all galleries is free; each is open to the public.
The Fountain Gallery, located in the Johnson Center for Worship and the Fine Arts, presents the paintings of Kristine Wyler from March 14 through April 6, 2011.
Kris developed a signature impressionistic style at the beginning of her career where she painted flowers and birds on plates and vases as a porcelain artist. She soon moved to fine paper and canvas using oil paints, acrylics, watercolors and pastels. The imagery in her work includes landscapes, portraits, still lifes and abstract works. Kristine, a resident of North Canton, has pursued art in its many forms throughout her entire life. Primarily self-taught, she has studied with a number of art teachers both locally and through the many seminars she has taken. As a member of the adjunct faculty in the Department for Professional Development in the School of Education for Malone, she provides instruction in painting techniques to art teachers.
Art-in-a-Case, located in the Cattell Library, presents the work of Helen Lewis, a resident of Carrollton, Ohio from March 14 through April 27, 2011. Helen’s artwork focuses on mixed media, encaustic, collage as well as calligraphy. Helen is interested in bringing her love of letters and words to her calligraphy, mixed media collages, encaustic, and design work. By combining her own lettering and painting with various ephemera, including snippets from old books and dusty hymnals, treasured correspondence from earlier centuries, pieces of vintage sheet music or wallpaper, Helen creates one-of-a-kind pieces that engage the viewer with their messages and imagery. She has exhibited in local galleries and participated in juried exhibits. Through her company, Illuminating Words, she sells her art in several retail stores. Helen also does commission pieces for individuals, incorporating their favorite quotes or family photos into personal artworks. Along with her husband Brad, they own and operate “Paperworks and More,” an office supply and gift store located on the village square in Carrollton.
