Luber to present works at Luther College

Mixed media sculptures on display March 19-April 24

From lungs framing portraits to hands with Christmas trinkets, the sculptures of Patrick Luber, professor of sculpture at the University of North Dakota, create an interesting contrast that speaks to an intersection of religion, individualism and popular culture.

An art exhibit of Luber's mixed media sculptures will be on display March 19-April 24 in the Kristin Wigley-Fleming Gallery in the Center for the Arts on the Luther College campus.

Crafted from such common materials as wood, nails and beverage cans, Luber's sculptures fascinatingly combine the imagery of the human body with everyday objects and scenery.

Luber will speak in chapel at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 19, in the Center for the Arts. A reception for the opening of the exhibit will be held at the Wigley-Fleming Gallery following chapel.

Luber has presented more than 30 solo exhibits and participated in more than 100 group exhibits. He published a number of papers, contributed to several publications and given lectures and presentations at various conferences and universities.

Luber holds a bachelor's degree in sculpture from Greenville College and a master's and Master of Fine Arts degrees in sculpture from the University of New Mexico-Albuquerque.
