The HLGU Art Department hosted the Bergen Art Gallery opening on Friday, April 23. The Roland Fine Arts Center was full of students, faculty and community members as they enjoyed the opening reception for the gallery. Drs. Robert and Martha Bergen teach classes in the Biblical Studies department at Hannibal-LaGrange University.
The Bergens took the fall 2016 semester off to go to Canada to teach at a Seminary there. Both Robert and Martha Bergen loved photography from a young age, and photography has since become a passion for them both. Most of the pieces in the current gallery are from their recent trip to Canada; the couple also brought refreshments back from Canada for the guests.
The gallery will continue until March 28.
