Union Program Council exhibits art of K-State staff member
K-State staff member Susan Rose exhibits her artistic talent in "Taking the Time to Notice." The exhibit, hosted by Union Program Council will be on display June 3-30 in the William T. Kemper Art Gallery.
Rose's work has been selected in juried regional and international shows as well as in numerous private collections. She is featured in SouthWind Art Gallery books "State of the Art-Kansas," based on work displayed in the Kansas 150 Show, and "Topeka: A Great Arts Town," featuring work from the Paint Topeka event. Her native bird-themed work also was part of the Flint Hills Discovery Center's 2013 "Through the Artist's Eyes" exhibit and will be in their Flint Hills Masters exhibit starting in October. Rose's work also has been selected to be part of the 2014 and 2015 Symphony of the Flint Hills Art exhibitions and auctions.
Rose does not have formal art training, but is a registered veterinary technician. She has been a full-time employee at Kansas State University since 1987, starting out as a research assistant in the entomology department, where she also was able to use her artistic abilities in illustrating presentations and publications. Since 1991, she has been at the College of Veterinary Medicine, where she is currently the manager of the Junior Surgery Laboratories.
The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday on the first floor of the K-State Student Union. Read more information and see a complete list of all Union Program Council activities or call the Union Program Council office at 785-532-6571.
