A mockingbird sits on a phone pole and shares a song. Wind-blown tumbleweeds dance across a dusty road. The sun sets in the west, while the full moon rises in the east.
Those are the images Susan Copas sees when she looks across the Kansas plains, as well as the scenes she shares when she picks up her paintbrush.
Copas, an accomplished painter and art instructor from Seward County Community College/Area Technical School, will display a series of her works in the March exhibition at Mercer Gallery on the Garden City Community College campus.
The show will open with a public reception from 1 to 3 p.m. March 8, offering a chance for the public to meet the artist. The exhibition will continue March 9-15 and March 22, with viewing hours of noon to 4 p.m. weekdays and 2 to 5 p.m. Sundays.
Mercer Gallery, is located in the west wing of the Pauline Joyce Fine Arts Building. Admission is free.
