Students to view Flickinger�s work at gallery opening


artCowley College Art Club students will have an opportunity to not only tour the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art on Friday, they will also have a chance to view Cowley College art instructor Mark Flickinger’s work, which will be displayed at the American Legacy Gallery opening later that evening.

The American Legacy Gallery is located in Kansas City, MO. Flickinger will have a winter scene painting of Yosemite National Park as well as a large painting of the Flint Hills on display. The gallery opening is titled “American Panorama” and will feature several artists work on landscapes, national parks, and important places. Friday’s opening will run from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Flickinger’s work will be on display into January.

“It is an honor to show my work there,” Flickinger said. “Showing your work is the fun side of art. It will be good for the students to see that it can be done.”

Flickinger has fond memories of attending gallery openings for professors he studied under while in college.

“Those really hit home for me and looked like fun,” Flickinger said.

Flickinger said the gallery opening will show the students the business side of art and also teach gallery etiquette.

“It can’t just be about the visual side, the business side is important as well,” Flickinger said. “This is a very entrepreneurial bunch of kids.”

Art Club students will have an opportunity to display their work during Final Friday Gallery Crawls planned in the spring.
