North Central College is currently hosting an art exhibit featuring the works of senior Kelly Eberhardt.

The exhibit is titled “Sculpture and Culture” and displays works made with plaster, mixed media and ceramics.

Eberhardt said that her art is designed to help build bridges between different cultures while inspiring dialogue.

“I’ve had the privilege of living in different parts of the world for over a decade,” she said. “I have witnessed how art can build bridges between cultures and create dialogue. Art has allowed me to explore new places, meet amazing people and has given me a deeper appreciation of life.”

The exhibit is free and open to the public and will be on display until Oct. 27 in the Meiley-Swallow Hall Gallery at North Central College. An artist reception will be held from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, in the gallery.

“I enjoy the challenge of creating something out of nothing and exploring different materials and techniques,” Eberhardt said. “I also like the physical exertion that comes with sculpture because I can work out my frustrations, push the envelope, foster new ideas or provoke a response. Sculpture is approachable and can be explored from different cultural perspectives.”
