Community art project

Knox College art professors Tony Gant and Lynette Lombard are visiting Grand Haven to share their work with the community.
In preparation for the art show at the Fire Barn Gallery, which opens Jan. 24, Gant is building a piece that will require assistance from onlookers. The community is invited to the gallery, 18 N. Fifth St., from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday to watch and help Gant with the sculpture.
This piece, along with 20 of Lombard’s paintings, will make up the “Educating a Generation: An American Renaissance" show.
The audience will help Gant by making paper snowflakes that he will incorporate into his piece, along with some buckets.
Chris Protas, director of the Fire Barn Gallery, said he is very excited to have Gant and Lombard show their work in Grand Haven. Protas said he would like to see a lot of local participation in Gant’s sculpting event.
“I think that the more people that come the better,” Protas said. “Let’s get those buckets filled up. We’ve got a snowless January, so let’s make some snow.”
