Feb 20, 2012

The Newman University Steckline Gallery will present “Tea for Two/Love Potion,” an exhibition of digital prints, sculpture and drawings by Wichita artists Jack Wilson and David Murano, as the sixth show of its 2011-2012 season. The exhibit, which begins with a Final Friday reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 24, will be on display through March 23.

The Final Friday reception will also feature music performed by Patrick O’Connor of Moody’s Skidrow Beanery. In addition, the Hallway Gallery just outside the Steckline Gallery will feature ceramic works by Newman University ceramics instructor Garet Reynek. Both the reception and admission to the galleries are free and open to the public.

Reynek completed his undergraduate degree with majors in Art and Business and a minor in Economics from Hastings College in Hastings, Neb. He has been a resident artist at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts in Newcastle, Maine, and is currently the Newman ceramics instructor, as well as a full-time studio assistant to ceramic artist Conrad Snider in Newton, Kan. Many of Reynek’s ceramic forms and wall hangings will be for sale on a “cash-and-carry” basis at the Final Friday reception.

An “Art for Lunch” presentation with artists Jack Wilson and David Murano will be held Tuesday, Feb. 28 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Steckline Gallery. A light lunch will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests may also bring their lunch. This event is also free and reservations are not required.
