Abstract, natural and organic art come together in a three-person art exhibit at Minnesota State University, Mankato through Friday, Oct. 14.

The “Three Ways” exhibit, in Conkling Gallery, Nelson Hall, features paintings of Robert Finkler, James Tanner and Janice Tanner.

Finkler, former Art Department chair, uses semi-figurative abstract paintings to explore the relationships of subject matter, form and content.

James Tanner, former Art faculty member, is a ceramic sculptor, painter and printmaker who creates art that is architectural in form. His work is displayed across the East Coast.

Janice Tanner’s paintings reflect the natural environment, especially in the form of leaves and trees. She is influenced by the three-dimensional form and painted surfaces to create a flow of energy that makes her art come alive.

Minnesota State Mankato, a comprehensive university with 15,547 students, is part of the Minnesota State Colleges & Universities system, which comprises 32 state institutions.
