MANHATTAN -- Drawings by St. Louis architect and artist Eugene J. Mackey III will go on display at Kansas State University's Chang Gallery Jan. 20-30.

"Through the Eyes of An Architect: Travel Sketches by Eugene J. Mackey III, Fellow of the American Institute of Architects" is being sponsored by K-State's College of Architecture, Planning and Design. The Chang Gallery, in Seaton Hall, is free and open to the public weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Mackey is an architect, urban planner, civic leader and an advocate of the built environment. He also is a current member of the college's dean's advisory council.

As an architectural artist Mackey has earned a reputation as a leader in the design of contextual architecture -- a body of work that demonstrates a genuine concern for tradition and the character of space. Traveling and sketching, which are Mackey’s hobbies, have led to several exhibits of his work.

He studied liberal arts at St. John's University in Minnesota, obtained his bachelor's degree in architecture from Washington University and has a master's degree from Harvard's Graduate School of Design. He has been a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects since 1991.
