Whitworth University’s spring art exhibit,  Gala Bent: Everything Seems to Be Coming Together, will run Feb. 9-April 1 in the Lied Center for the Visual Arts on campus. Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturdays.
An opening reception will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 9, from 5-6 p.m. in the Lied Center for the Visual Arts, followed by an artist’s lecture from 6-7 p.m. in Room 102 of the Lied Center. For more information, please call (509) 777-3258.
This exhibition features a selection of recent bodies of work by Gala Bent, along with a group of new pieces that continue to explore the harmonies and dissonances that make the shape of the world around us. Bent’s paintings, drawings and objects seek to reflect the inevitable strain that forms when the systems that we inherit and create meet with resistance. Some people glory in that messy place, while others attempt to make new structures to hold tension in balance.
Located in Spokane, Wash., Whitworth is a private, liberal arts university affiliated with the Presbyterian church. The university, which has an enrollment of 3,000 students, offers 60 undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
