A variety of paintings and one drawing on loan from the Birger Sandzen Memorial Gallery in Lindsborg are currently on display in the McPherson College gallery at Friendship Hall.

The exhibition featuring artwork from the permanent collection of the Sandzen Gallery will be on display through April 25, 2021. Friendship Hall is open to the public on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Gallery visitors are required to comply with the MC health and safety protocols that require wearing a facemask on campus.

“All of us were affected by the pandemic; visual artists stopped exhibiting because art galleries did not offer opportunities for live exhibitions,” Michaela Valli Groeblacher, gallery director, said. “We are just beginning to schedule new exhibitions again, albeit somewhat gingerly.”

Groeblacher said she is thankful to the Sandzen Gallery and its director, Ron Michael, for offering to loan the artwork from its collection for this show.
