For the month of March, Mercer Gallery at Garden City Community College will feature the works of Michael Kent Knutson and Brian McCallum, faculty at GCCC.

The exhibit will open at 5 p.m. Friday as part of the Garden City Downtown Vision’s First Friday exhibtion. The exhibit “Co Lab: The Art of Collaboration” features a variety of works by GCCC art instructors, as well as collaborative art. McCallum, Knutson, and Tara Dean offer the collaborative pieces.

McCallum and Knutson have extensive show, publication and workshop résumés, including workshop “Fast Figures” recently displayed at Colorado State University-Pueblo last October and at the Kansas Artist Craftsman Association Convention at Bethany College in November. They continue to work and exhibit regionally and nationally, as well as teaching and collaborating with local art organizations and mentoring young artists.

The collaborative work on display is playful, colorful, organic and surprising.

Mercer Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment. Admission is free.
