Sandzen works to be displayed

October 27, 2005

"Sandzen in the Smoky Valley," an exhibition of prints by Birger Sandzen (1871-1954) will open with a reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, in Stacks Gallery at Carnegie Arts Center.

The exhibit, which has been mounted by the Birger Sandzen Memorial Gallery, Lindsborg, includes prints of pioneer homes, landmarks of the valley and city of Lindsborg, and landscapes of farms and the Smoky Hill River, which flows through the valley. Prints span the years from 1916 to 1952. The prints provide a glimpse of the valley where Sandzen, one of Kansas' most well-known artists, lived from 1894 to 1954.

"Sandzen in the Smoky Valley" may be viewed Nov. 4-28 in the Stacks Gallery at Carnegie Arts Center, 601 S. Fifth St., Leavenworth. The gallery is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, call 913-651-0765 or visit
