Theory of Praxis Comes to Art Gallery
Siloam Springs, Ark. (November 28, 2005) — Audiences can sip fresh roasted coffee and admire a collection of work from Todd Goehner, assistant professor of graphic design at John Brown University, at JBU’s newest Art Gallery exhibit. The exhibit opens (tomorrow) Tuesday, Nov. 29 and will feature an evening reception from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and Sunday afternoons, 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The exhibit, “Theory to Praxis,” that has been shown in galleries in Idaho and Washington, will be displayed through the end of the year.
The gallery will host three main groups of work: Biblical Advice Series, FishBowl Philosophy and Rabies Awareness.
The Biblical Advice Series depicts humorous life advice that promotes the Bible; the FishBowl Philosophy is a body of work that looks at different perspectives of the Christian fish symbol and the rabies/spay/neutering awareness public service announcement.
“It is important for Christians to understand visual communication theory and integrate it into practice,” Goehner said. “As Christians we have the most important message ever, so we should use the most powerful forms of communication effectively to deliver this message.”
