The University of Olivet Visual Arts Department invites the community for an exhibition of collective works from artist John Felsing, Jan. 21 to Feb. 12, at the Kresge Gallery inside The University of Olivet’s Riethmiller Blackman Art Building.

Born and raised in Battle Creek, Felsing received a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University in 1979.  His paintings have been exhibited at the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wis., the Algonquin Park Museum in Ontario, Canada, and the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyo., among others.

His paintings also reside in the permanent collections of numerous institutions, including the Nature Conservancy of Arlington, Va. and East Lansing, the Living Science Foundation in Redwood City, Calif., the Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Monastery in Woodstock, NY, and the Kresge Art Museum at Michigan State University. He has also been featured in numerous publications, including the magazines Wildlife Art, Southwest Art, Art-Talk, and Mountain Living.

Described as “a master at capturing the more ethereal aspects of nature, Felsing creates haunting landscapes that reveal the fleeting effects of light and color glimpsed only at twilight.” The inspiration for Felsing’s introspective oils is firmly rooted in the lakes, streams and woodlands surrounding his Michigan home.

This exhibition will be the first Felsing has presented in the state of Michigan in a decade. The event is free and open to the public during gallery hours, which are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by appointment.

For more information, please contact Gary Wertheimer, Visual Arts Department chair and professor of art, at 269.749.7627.
