Art professor’s exhibit opening at Southern Adventist

The public is invited to a gallery opening featuring the work of Donald Keefe, assistant professor of art at Southern Adventist University. Hosted by the School of Visual Art and Design in the John C. Williams Gallery in Brock Hall on the university’s campus, the event will be held Thursday, Jan. 18, at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

Born in Iowa, Keefe has lived and worked across the country in places as diverse as Appalachian Kentucky and New York City.

Drawn to structures that are collapsed, abandoned, or under construction, he’s inspired by the biblical story of the tower of Babel.

“Through my art, I seek to communicate that beauty, faith, hope and contentment can exist even when one’s support structures are weakened, confused, collapsing, or being rebuilt,” Keefe says.

Keefe’s show, “Precarious Structures,” features mixed media drawings and oil paintings on canvas. It will be on display through Monday, Feb. 12. The gallery is open during normal office hours Monday through Thursday or by special appointment.
