College of the Ozarks to host the work of artist Cameron Anderson
POINT LOOKOUT, MO. — College of the Ozarks is hosting the artistic work of Cameron Anderson now through Oct. 30, 2018, in the Boger Art Gallery. The exhibit displays paintings from the artist’s collection, Approaching the Mystery: Red, Yellow, Blue.
Located inside the Jones Learning Center, the Boger Art Gallery is open Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
“The work is abstract and comes from a place of deep spirituality and Christian faith,” said Richard Cummings, professor of art. “Anderson spoke with the students about how he has incorporated his Christian faith into his work with the visual arts.”
Anderson is an artist, writer, and curator living in Madison, Wisconsin. He completed his M.F.A. in painting and drawing at Cranbrook Academy of Art. From 1994 to 2008, Anderson served as the national director of InterVarsity’s Graduate and Faculty Ministries. In 2009, he was appointed executive director of CIVA | Christians in the Visual Arts, a position he held through August 2018. In 2016, he was invited to serve as the visiting senior scholar for the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust in Vancouver, Washington. Later that year he published The Faithful Artist: A Vision for Evangelicalism and the Arts (IVP Academic).
