FHU Art Teachers Exhibit Work in Jackson Show
Three Freed-Hardeman University art teachers will have their work exhibited in an art show March 2-April 30 at the Ned R. McWherter West Tennessee Cultural Arts Center in Jackson. “Landscapes” will feature works from “talented artists across West Tennessee using watercolor, watercolor pencils, oil, and acrylic,” according the center’s web site.
Three landscapes by Laquita Thompson were selected for the show: “Cottonfield” and “Cornfield,” both of which are reduction linocut prints; and “Pinson,” a watercolor.
Barbara England also had three pieces, one color print and two platinum prints, chosen for the show: “Portrait of Home After Katrina,” “Maritius Waterfall,” and “In Our Watching We Watched, Lamentations 4:17.”
Two works, both urban landscapes in oil on panel, by Brian Bundren are included in the exhibit, “Halfway Station” and “Drive-in.” “Halfway Station” depicts the Greyhound bus station in Jackson.
Admission to the gallery is free, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The cultural arts center, commonly known as “The Ned,” is located in downtown Jackson at 314 East Main.
