Ronald Christ’s work carefully balances precision and lyricism, realism and abstraction. In this illustrated talk, the artist reviewed his 40-year career, reflecting on the constant concern for exacting attention to detail and changing nature of his subjects. A beloved professor of art at Wichita State University since 1976, Christ is also
a respected artist throughout the region. The recipient of the 1995 Kansas Governor’s Art Award, he has had solo exhibitions in respected galleries in Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, Cincinnati, and Santa Fe.
