Artists’ Exhibit Opens Sept. 18 At PBSC Gallery

Two accomplished local artists are collaborating for an exhibition at the Art Gallery at Eissey Campus at Palm Beach State College in Palm Beach Gardens.

Titled “Other-word-ly: An Exploration In Multi-Media,” the exhibit features more than 20 pieces of work by Hanne Niederhausen of Boca Raton and Terre Rybovich of Lantana. The pieces include drawing, mixed-media paintings and printmaking.

The exhibit runs Sept. 18 through Oct. 19 at the gallery located at 3160 PGA Blvd. An opening reception will be held Tuesday, Sept. 18 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

The two artists stretched beyond their boundaries to test new artistic expressions or art forms. Niederhausen, a printmaker, painter and book artist, likes to challenge herself in different forms of artistic expression.

Although Niederhausen experiments and shifts her unique media techniques, she doesn’t stray from her basic aesthetics and attitudes.

After years of making charcoal drawings based on imprints of her body, Rybovich tackles new art forms: three-dimensional drawings modeled on her torso, pastel drawings of birds in her back yard and an abstract video. All are part of her ongoing quest to find a way forward for this world.

The gallery hours are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, contact art gallery specialist Karla Walter at (561) 207-5015 or visit
