Bellamy will lead an exhibit tour in the gallery at 6 p.m. In “Lost Language,” Daniel Papke’s paintings focus on an internal search for the deeper meaning of the images, mythology, and visual narratives that captivate his imagination. He paints layered images on large hand-stretched canvases using oils, alkyds, wax mediums and classic glazing techniques. He will give a presentation on his work in the APK Lecture Hall at 7 p.m. Both presentations will be recorded by KTOO for later broadcast on 360 North.
