The Muskegon Community College Arts and Humanities Department is proud to announce its upcoming exhibition, “Ann Kraus: Greetings From,” running from January 16 to February 29 2024, at the Overbrook Gallery. The showcase will feature an intriguing collection of digital photo collages, video/sound installations, and mixed media pieces by esteemed Whitehall artist, Ann Kraus.

Fans and art enthusiasts also can meet Kraus at a free public reception and gallery talk on February 8 from 4 to 5 p.m., hosted at the Overbrook Gallery. Attendees can expect to gain insight into the artist’s creative process and inspiration behind the exhibition.

Known for her use of color to highlight structures and prompt viewers to reconsider the often-overlooked elements of their surroundings, Kraus’ “Greetings From” blends magical realism with local White Lake history, contemporary reality, and an imagined future. The exhibit invites observers to contemplate how these structures shape the community and the personal experiences of those who live and work in the White Lake area.

The Overbrook Art Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and admission is free to the public.
