FALL 2017 EXHIBITION SCHEDULE


Dorothy Gillespie at Belmont: Twenty Years Later
From the Radford University Art Museum Collection

On view through September 1, 2017

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.

Monuments and Structures

On view September 15 – October 13, 2017
Reception: Thursday, September 21, from 4:00-6:00PM; Gallery Talk at 5:00
Location: Leu Art Gallery in the Lila D. Bunch Library

This exhibition explores the abstract paintings of Brady Haston and the photographic abstractions of Robin
Paris and Tom Williams. While Haston’s work takes specifically from obscure landmarks and urban
reference points, Paris and Williams explore the generalized rhetoric of political or commemorative
monumentality of figurative monuments. This exhibit provides a new perspective for interpretation of our
environment.

The Conceptualizer – A celebration of the artist in all of us

On view August 21 – September 17, 2017
Reception: Thursday, September 07, from 4:30-6:00PM; Artist Talk at 5:00
Location: Leu Center for Visual Art (Lobby)

The Conceptualizer is a light-hearted installation demonstrating that creativity is everywhere, and not just a
gift for a select few. This interactive, audience-driven exhibit puts the observer at the heart of creativity, combining random things and creating connections in the mind that spark ideas. Everyone is an artist. Some
just don’t know it yet…

Glimpse of Tajtania
Tatiana Potts

On view September 25 – October 13, 2017
Reception: Thursday, September 28, from 4:30-6:00PM; Artist Talk at 5:00
Location: Gallery 121 in the Leu Center for Visual Art

Tajtania is an imaginary world. One that draws from historical architectural forms and merges the artist’s
experiences from opportunities to live, travel and study in different places. Glimpse of Tajtania represents
the essence of a city that will never be built and has the potential of continuous change. It is an effort to
create a phenomenological space that can be experienced by viewers based on their own familiarities.

processes.
