Staff Pick: ‘Witness: Bosnia-Influenced Paintings’ By Yvonne Petkus

Bowling Green artist Yvonne Petkus received a fellowship to work in Bosnia and Herzegovina last year. Imagine the process she had to go through to understand a country recovering from war. It had her “exploring ideas of struggle and survival, of vulnerability and the stubbornness necessary to persist,” she said. “This experience, which included three months of study followed by in-country research and exploration, was intense, beautiful, emotional, at sometimes difficult, and at all times supremely interesting and inspiring.” The opening reception is Friday, April 13 from 5:30-8 p.m. Petkus will give an artist talk at 7 p.m.
