Jerry Bleem: Transit


Baylor University's first art exhibit of the academic year opened at the University Art Gallery in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center, Aug. 23, 2000. Fiber sculptor Jerry Bleem is displaying 20 works in the show, which runs through Sept. 20, 2000.

"This is a wonderful exhibit, very engaging," said Denny Pickett, director of the University Art Gallery and visiting professor. "Jerry Bleem creates most of his works from objects he has found. For example, his piece 'Millennial Regret' was created from old postage stamps."

Bleem, who also is a Franciscan priest, received a master of fine arts degree from the Art Institute of Chicago and has been a visiting artist at the Kansas City Art Institute, Cranbrook Academy of Art and University of Kansas. He has exhibited extensively throughout the United States.
