"Finding Balance" at the Deines Cultural Center Now Open

Deines Cultural CenterThe exhibition "Finding Balance" is now open for viewing at the Deines Cultural Center in Russell until July 10.

The exhibition was curated by Fort Hays State University Professor of Painting Joel T. Dugan. Dugan has selected works from 15 renowned artists from around the country to participate in this exhibit.

Work selected for "Finding Balance: The Role of Landscape in Contemporary Art" was considered to be any art, which depicted the natural world, outdoor scenery, geographical environments and related landscape subjects in a unique and engaging manner, according to Matthew Ballou.

Curator Joel T. Dugan said, "The artwork created by the artists of the midwest has historically focused on themes of the land and man's reliance upon it. Many artists explore the landscape of the region as it pertains to our physical survival, domestic livelihood and spirituality. In choosing the works for this exhibition I selected artists that explore the presence of man's footprint on the environment and the impact our surroundings have on us. These works explore the spaces we inhabit, places we visit and memories. As we look forward and consider what the future holds, the landscape reminds us of the changes we have lived through."

The Deines Cultural Center, located at 820 North Main Street in Russell, is open Tuesday through Friday from noon to 5 and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5.
