Artist Kayla Arbet is exhibiting her artwork to the students and faculty of Carthage College as well as to the members of the Kenosha community. The new exhibit entitled A Walk in the Woods will take place through May 11, in the H.F. Johnson Art Gallery at Carthage College during regular gallery hours.


Arbet is a graduate of Central High School in Paddock Lake.

A Walk in the Woods presents eleven of Arbet’s most recent works, ranging in medium from watercolor paint to charcoal to earthen ceramics. The show embodies the themes of growth, vitality and transition with motifs of flowers, splashes of color and depictions of the human body. The integration of both natural and human elements inspires the viewer to suspend distinctions between Nature and humanity. When asked about the title A Walk in the Woods, Arbet explains that the show manifests her current state of reflection and transition as she prepares to graduate from college. Different poses, emotions, and materials encourage the viewer “to reflect on his or her own journey through life and how things may or may not have worked out the way they did.”

The H.F. Johnson Art Gallery is located in the Johnson Arts Center just south of Hedberg Library at Carthage College, 2001 Alford Park Drive, Kenosha. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m.- 3 p.m., Thursday evenings 6-8 p.m. and Saturday 1-4 p.m. The gallery is closed on Sunday and Monday.
