Exhibition by Sculptor Sarah Lindley Ends on Friday

The gallery of the De Pree Art Center at Hope College is featuring the work of Sarah Lindley in an exhibition titled “Exiting Allegan”.

The exhibition will continue through Friday, Feb. 7.  Admission is free.

Lindley is department chair and associate professor of art at Kalamazoo College in Kalamazoo. She studied art at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, receiving her BFA in 1996. She earned her MFA from the University of Washington.

She describes her exhibit as being “generated in response to the pull of place, a desire to understand the landscape of my surroundings and that which is concealed beneath the surface.”

The exhibit is comprised of a series of sculptures based on the sediment, floodplains, and paper mill industry along the Kalamazoo River.

Lindley, who resides in Plainwell, spent two summers in Kohler, Wis., as a John Michael Kohler Arts and Industry Resident. Her past exhibitions include “Remains: Contemporary Artists and the Material Past” at the Milwaukee Art Museum; “Next Iconoclasts” at the Oregon College of Art and Craft; “NCECA Clay National Biennial” at the Arizona State University Museum; the “CEBIKO World Ceramic Biennale” in Incheon, South Korea; and “Housing Petronella,” a solo exhibition at Artspace in Raleigh, N.C.

The De Pree Art Center is located at 160 E. 12th St., on Columbia Avenue, at 12th Street. The gallery is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The facilities are handicapped accessible.
