You can always enjoy art from our collections contributed by Lyon College faculty, staff, alumni, and students! We also have selections from local artists, memorials for beloveds, and some miscellaneous items in our library. Browse the exhibit, learn about the artist on the bio page, like and share on social media to support our artists. When the library opens, these collections are displayed on the second and third floors of the library.
From Earnie Kilman's Bio:
"I have a serious concern about our natural environment which comes from paying attention to the land, and the rivers, and the natural settings I love. As both an observer of natural landscapes, and a painter of them. I want to make a social statement. My works are interfaces: landscape paintings functioning as escapes back to the tranquility of our original and natural habitats..."
Doris Phillips was a retired art teacher who painted primarily in watercolors. She was a devoted Methodist and a member of the White River Artist's Association in the 60's and 70's.
Mark Marban painted this picture in 1993 and it was purchased for the library by professor George Chlebak. We do not know and cannot find any more information about this artist. I seem to recall that the painting represents the Sangre De Cristo Mountains.
Cynthia Dierks was from Hot Springs according to the label on the back of her painting and her watercolor has been here for many years. If anyone knows more, please tell us.
