"Yellowstone and Yosemite", an exhibit by artist Pamela Kendall Schiffer, will be on display Oct. 24-Dec. 11, in the Kristin Wigley-Fleming Fine Arts Gallery in the Center for the Arts on the Luther campus.

Kendall Schiffer will be present at a public reception from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24. Both the reception and the exhibit are open to the public with no charge for admission.

The Kristin Wigley-Fleming Fine Arts Gallery is open from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, when school is in session.

"Yellowstone and Yosemite" explores the unique landscapes of America's first national parks. Kendall Schiffer's art distills a single scene down to its essential qualities of atmosphere, stillness and light. Each painting is created from dozens of layers of paint, working from personal sketches and photographs made during multiple visits to Yellowstone and Yosemite national parks.

Kendall Schiffer received a bachelor of arts in painting and ceramics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She currently resides in Davenport, Iowa, but makes frequent trips to Yellowstone National Park to gather materials for future works. Kendall Schiffer's art has been exhibited at the Ucross Foundation in Wyoming and in California at the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, Westmont College and the Museum of Ventura County.

A national liberal arts college with an enrollment of 2,400, Luther offers an academic curriculum that leads to the bachelor of arts degree in more than 60 majors and pre-professional programs. For more information about Luther visit the college's website: http://www.luther.edu.
