BLOOMSBURG — The Bloomsburg University Haas Gallery of Art will showcase an art exhibit featuring works by Erik Waterkotte from Friday, Feb. 17, to Monday, March 19.

Waterkotte, a visual artist accentuating pieces in print making and painting, defines the meaning of his creativity, “My work is an exploration of popular culture, myth and fantasy as conveyed through the line between fantasy and reality. I want the viewer to experience imagery that is easily peeled apart, temporal and shifting.”

A reception will be held on Wednesday, March 7, from noon until 2 p.m., including an artist lecture at 1:15 p.m. by Waterkotte.

The Haas Gallery of Art is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from noon until 2 p.m. The gallery is closed on Sundays and university holidays. This exhibit is open to the public and free of charge.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. BU serves approximately 10,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
