LEWISBURG, Pa. — Ten Bucknell University alumni participated in a panel discussion recently with students and the community.

The panel discussion was part of the opening of the Samek Art Gallery exhibitions, "Carving in Context II: Granite Carving by William Lasansky" and "Sculptors since Bucknell."

The 10 "Sculptors since Bucknell" artists are active sculptors, teachers and administrators throughout the United States. They traveled from Connecticut, Maryland, Missouri, New York, New Jersey, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington to participate in the weekend's events, according to Dan Mills, director of the Samek Art Gallery.

Lasansky is retiring after this semester after teaching for 38 years.

The exhibition may be seen through March 27. The Samek Art Gallery is open weekdays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursdays 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; weekends 1 to 5 p.m., and by appointment. The Gallery is accessible by elevator. For more information about the gallery, call 577-3792 or see http://www.bucknell.edu/SamekArtGallery/
