POINT LOOKOUT, MO. — College of the Ozarks hosts Delro Rosco’s New Mornings Art Exhibit from Oct. 8 – Nov. 19, in the Boger Art Gallery. Located inside the Jones Learning Center, the Boger Art Gallery is open Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The exhibit displays a selection of Rosco’s contemporary paintings inspired by faith, everyday life, and beauty found in nature.

“In any circumstance, if you look hard enough, even in the everyday ordinary places, you can find beauty,” Rosco said. “As artists, perhaps we need to learn to listen with our eyes to discover the deeper meanings of what we see.”

On Oct. 17, Rosco presented a lecture to College of the Ozarks art students to share his artistic journey.

“His work invokes an emotional response because you can actually relate to what he talks about,” said Lydia Hoskins, junior painting and Christian apologetics double major. “It’s the truth about life: there is pain and heartache, but there is also joy and hope. You can see that in each of his pieces.”
