Myka Bohnsack, a senior at Southeast Missouri State University, recently exhibited a collection of her contemporary, acrylic paintings at Garden Gallery, which is above Grace Cafe at 835 Broadway. This was the second time Myka, who is majoring in graphic design, has shown her paintings to the public. She has been painting for many years, and majored in art at Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield for three years before transferring to Southeast.
In April, Myka and fellow Central High School graduates Tim Chisman, Lauren Hirschburg and Melissa Parrott displayed their works at Garden Gallery. At the May showing, Myka, who works in the gallery, presented several new paintings for viewing. Her paintings are different sizes and are for sale. Following graduation at Southeast, Myka plans to work as a graphic designer for a magazine.
