The Todd Art Gallery at Middle Tennessee State University presents the Department of Art’s 2011 biennial Faculty Art Exhibition, entitled “Convergent Visions.” This exhibit features works of art by faculty members as a way to introduce their work to art majors, the broader campus population and the community. Their work in a range of media and styles includes representational, abstract, traditional and mixed media.
The faculty represent years of experience of productive work as evidenced by the extensive and ongoing record of exhibitions in juried and invitational shows. Each faculty member is an active working artist and visual art educator. Their personal work is invaluable to them and to their students who learn from the efforts and successes of their mentors in the art studio.
Some of those participating this year are Erin Anfinson, Michael Baggarly, John Donovan, Kim Dummons, Bob Durham, Janet Higgins, Jarrod Houghton, Sisavanh Houghton, Noël Lorson, Jean Nagy, Melissa Newman, Christie Nuell, Meghan O’Connor, Marisa Recchia, Thomas Sturgill, Patricia Tenpenny and Tanya Tewell.
The Faculty Art Exhibition runs through Sept. 15. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Following the Faculty Exhibition, the inaugural Nashville Art Galleries Showcase will open featuring work on loan from Cumberland Gallery, Estel Gallery, Twist Gallery and Zeitgeist Gallery. This is the first joint effort between the Department and some of Nashville’s finest showplaces for art. The show will open Sept. 20. For more information, call (615) 898-5653.
