‘Lion & Lamb’ theme of GC student art exhibit


GOSHEN — Goshen College students will focus on the theme “Lion & Lamb” for a student art show, which is on display until Feb. 1 in the college’s Good Library Gallery.

There will be a reception on Sunday Jan. 13 from 4 to 5 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

This year’s exhibit includes more than 30 artists and more than 50 works of art in a variety of media, including drawing, jewelry, printmaking, sculpture, painting, photography and ceramics. Some artwork explores the Biblical reference to the lion laying down with the lamb, others look at ideas and issues related to the animal kingdom or human psychological relationships and connections with animals, while some simply explore things that are diametrically opposite.

This is the third year a themed student exhibit has been held, with previous themes being: “Tolerance & the Other” and “North & South.”

Professor of Art Randy Horst said, “Themes are selected that reflect the shared values of the Goshen College community. We try to pick themes that can be interpreted in a wide variety of approaches.”
