Dorothy Gillespie (1920–2012) was an American painter and sculptor who enjoyed an artistic career spanning more than seventy years. During her lifetime, she created, exhibited, and sold her artwork nationally and internationally. Her work encompasses many significant twentieth-century trends in art, including abstract expressionism, decorative abstraction, site-specific installations, the women’s movement, and art in public spaces.

This exhibition features numerous pieces of Gillespie’s collection from throughout her career and simultaneously honors her visit to Belmont University’s campus twenty years ago.
