Anthony Marshall art to be on display at E.B. White Gallery

El Dorado, Kan. – The artwork of Anthony Marshall is the highlight of this month’s art show hosted by Butler Community College’s Art Department. The show will run until February 27 in the E.B. White Gallery.

Marshall earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from Kansas State University and a Master of Fine Arts in studio art with an emphasis in painting from Wichita State University. The artwork showcased in the exhibit, entitled “Building Utopia,” spans many mediums, from graphite and charcoal drawings, to watercolor and oil paintings, to mixed media sculptures and costumes. Each piece of art in the exhibit is part of a long term project called the “Eovinian Utopia Project,” based on a detailed mythology of Marshall’s own creation. 

“‘Building Utopia’ houses the many projects that have manifested as the utopia has grown and transformed over the years,” said Eaton.

A gallery reception will be held on January 30 from 6-8 p.m. in the E.B. White Gallery, located in the 700 Building of Butler’s El Dorado Campus. For additional information about the show, contact Trisha Coates at tcaostes1@butlercc.edu or 316.200.5986.

The E.B. White Gallery is open to the community from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Admittance is free of charge.
