Salina Public Library
Dot by Dot: Art by Lisa Urban is the next exhibition in Gallery 708 of the Salina Public Library.
The Salina Central alum’s work will be on display in the gallery from Tuesday through July 11. A reception will be held at Gallery 708 on July 1 from 4-5:30 p.m. in conjunction with the downtown First Friday parties. The exhibition mainly presents oil paintings on canvas.
In addition to being an artist, Urban is a teacher, knitter, dyer, and a 2009 graduate of Salina Central. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting at Kansas State University, Urban moved to Texas for a year-long artist residency in the small town of Navasota. She quickly fell in love with the downtown Bryan, Texas cultural scene and made it her home in 2015. In 2016, she accepted a job teaching art at St. Joseph’s Catholic School where she still teaches today.
“This exhibit encompasses everything I’ve done since graduating from KSU in 2013,” Urban said. “I hope you’ll take a moment to read about all my painting adventures and appreciate where I’ve been and where I’m going!”
Gallery 708 is located near the south entrance of the Salina Public Library. The public is invited to visit the exhibition during library opening hours: 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
