LocationEarl and Virginia Green Art Gallery

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery at Biola University is proud to present the exhibition "MORTAL PARTS: FIGURES IN THE ABSTRACT".
Please join us on Tuesday, September 22nd to celebrate the opening with a gallery reception from 6:30-8:30pm!

MORTAL PARTS features work by contemporary artists connected by a common practice of rendering the human (and anthropomorphic) form in an abstract way. 
Exploring the tension between figurative and abstract representation, MORTAL PARTS questions, expands, and materializes the intersection between our physical bodies and that which is immaterial, the body and the soul, the mortal and the immortal; This assembled body of work seeks to expand the field of figurative representation and explores the fragile space between the fleeting physical body and the immaterial, other matter that also constitutes our being.
Featured artists: Virginia Broersma, Cathy Daley, Craig Taylor, Anna Von Mertens

The Green Art Gallery is located on the Biola campus, near the bell tower and adjacent to Mayers Auditorium. See campus maps at
The gallery is open Monday through Friday, from 9:00am to 10:00pm. 
Admission is free for all visitors.

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery presents a program of rotating contemporary art exhibitions on the campus of Biola University. Located in the greater Los Angeles area, the Green Art Gallery is well positioned to represent a vital Christian worldview within the critical dialogue of contemporary visual art and to produce engaging exhibitions that grapple with issues concerning the intersection of faith with art and culture. The Green Art Gallery also provides professional development opportunities for Biola art students through gallery exhibitions and internships.
