BaRTaRt 2022

Barton Community College Faculty Staff and Student Exhibit

BaRTaRt is Shafer Gallery’s yearly event celebrating students, faculty, and staff at Barton Community College. Students are welcome to enter work they have made during the school year and faculty and staff and asked to show us what they can do too! The student portion of the show is a judged event with prizes, curtesy of local artist, Billie Bonomo. Which we are very thankful for! This year’s BaRTaRT was judged by Ron Michael, director of the Birger Sandzen Memorial Gallery in Lindsborg, KS. Ron is also an artist and we have selections from his work on display in the Gallery alongside BaRTaRT. There are three main categories (painting, graphic media, and ceramics) as well as best overall for the judged portion of the show. Winners are listed below with images. If you'd like to see more of the show stop by the gallery or visit our website Shafer Gallery Portfolio of Exhibits!
