On September 17th, St. Kate’s opened their new exhibits in the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery. Right now the two exhibits going on are Between Rivers and The Absence of Water. According to Gao Yer Lee, a sophomore at St. Kate’s and an employee of the gallery, “We have paintings and also sculptures and sometimes they even have video art.” Lee also said that anyone can put on an art exhibit in the St. Kate’s Gallery. “It can be someone really famous or a professor here at St. Kate’s.”
Between Rivers is an exhibit put on by Todd Deutsch, a professor here at St.Kate’s. His work consists of photographs from the landscapes around his home.
The other artist is not affiliated with St.Kate’s but is well known for her work. According to Lee, “For this one, she is a whole different person not involved with St.Kate’s, but we have the excerpts here to show.” The Absence of Water is an exhibit put on by Kristie Bretzke. She focuses on society’s expectations of water in her paintings.
Between Rivers and The Absence of Water will be closing on October 21st. On November 5th, the next round of exhibits will be put up for the public to see. These exhibits will be De Mundo: The Small Fascinating World of B.J. Christopherson and Emergence: Unforeseen Occurrence.
