  • Re-Cover, Re-Form | MFA Alumni Show
    12-19-2022 | Leu Art Gallery in the Bunch Library

    Re-Cover, Re-Form is an MFA alumni response to the 2023 Inaugural Tennessee Triennial theme of RE-PAIR selected by Dr. Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons. Each of these artists speak to the function of art for positive change, meaning that art can operate as a critical force in society and ultimately enhance the human experience. A variety of media are explored in this show to connect and engage the viewer in unique ways. From traditional modes of artistic expression like photography and sculpture, to those influenced by advances in digital technologies, this show evokes the vast power of art by celebrating the creative approaches of our alumni.

    Exhibiting alumni artists include Chuck Ärlund (’20), Heriberto “Eddie” Palacio III (’20), Lisa Bachman Jones (’21), Maddie Ryan (’21), Danny Broadway (’22), Le Dillingham (’22), Allie Horick (’22), and Jackie Lucas (’22). 

    This exhibition will remain on view through February 27, 2023.

  • Inherent Echoes – Mildred Jarrett
    02-06-2023 | Gallery 121 located in the Leu Center for the Visual Arts

    This solo exhibition celebrates the artistic career of alumna Mildred Jarrett ('01). Anchored in non-objective expressionism, Mildred incorporates an explorative process. This personal search results in an artistic vision that is balanced between intuition (spontaneity) and the deliberate (functional resolutions) without the distraction of subject matter or narrative.

    This exhibition will be on display in Gallery 121 located in the Leu Center for the Visual Arts at Belmont University from February 06 – 24, 2023. A reception and gallery talk will be held on Thursday, February 23, from 4:30 – 6:00 PM.
