November 1, 2001

SIOUX CENTER, Iowa; October 31, 2001—Dordt College art professor David Versluis will be showing many of his artworks in the mezzanine art gallery in Dordt’s B.J. Haan Auditorium. The show will run from November 1 through December 20.

Featured in Versluis’ exhibit will be retrospective works from 1978 to the present. The show includes lithographs, etchings, relief prints, drawings, typographic and graphic designs, along with wireform and wood sculptures. A predominate theme of the exhibit is urban and Midwest landscape environments.

“I believe all art should come from the heart, soul, mind, and strength of the artist,” says Versluis, “And all art should be accomplished to God’s glory.”

Versluis is a recent addition to the Dordt College art faculty. He has been a professional graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, advertising manager, and artist since 1978. His printwork has been included in numerous exhibitions throughout the United States and Canada. Versluis received a BFA degree from Calvin College and an MFA degree from Western Michigan University.
