CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa Gallery of Art will present Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) group exhibition from Thursday, Dec. 10, through Saturday, Dec. 19, on the main floor of Kamerick Art Building (KAB). An opening reception will be held at 7 p.m., Dec. 10, in the KAB south lobby.

Travis Gingerich of Kalona will present a ceramics exhibition titled "Graven Images." Gingerich creates earthenware sculptures of the human figure that convey personal narratives using both dramatic expressions and a quirky sense of humor. This new body of work explores habitual behaviors, self-perception and spirituality with a focus on how different facets of one's personality intertwine and affect on another.

Zach Leonard of Tripoli will present an exhibition of paintings and drawings. He states: "The idea of using art to help us cope with death and grief can be a mechanism for understanding our own mortality and the loss of loved ones. Using the human figure through objective abstraction and realism to address the notion of loss is an attempt to begin the healing process."

Dana Potter of Spirit Lake will present a printmaking exhibition. She states: "I am a multimedia artist working mainly with installations and post-digital printmaking, all of which is related to an interest in human relationships with computers. In this exhibition I focus on my own relationship with computers through various observations of my mouse movements, which are taken from everyday computer use."

All events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday; noon to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday; and by appointment. The gallery will be closed during the university's Thanksgiving break from Nov. 21 through 29.
