The Art Gallery at Collin College will host the exhibition Echoes of Seasons by artist Bartosz Beda from Sept. 29 to Oct. 26 at the Plano Campus. A reception is scheduled from 4-7 p.m. on Oct. 24. The show and reception are free and open to the public.

Beda describes Echoes of Seasons as “a harmonious blend of abstraction and figuration, a union where neither dominates the painting.” 

“In this exploration of the human experience hidden under layers of metaphorical Freud cake, the paintings serve as windows into the complex seasons of migration of human nature,” Beda said.

Visitors are encouraged to join faculty, staff, and students for an Artist Talk in the gallery from Noon-12:45 p.m. on Oct. 10 to hear Gallery Director Anna Fritzel interview Beda about his recent artwork.

The gallery is located on Collin College’s Plano Campus, Room A175, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. Gallery hours are: 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Friday-Saturday.
