Art Exhibit Opens at FHU
“Flashes of Yesterday” is currently on display in the Troy Plunk Gallery of Bulliner-Clayton Visual Arts Center on the Freed-Hardeman University campus. The exhibit features a series of portraits that expresses one vital part of the human experience, memory.
The exhibit by Alex Maxwell opened Nov. 12 and continues through Nov. 16. She is a senior from Somerville, Tenn., who is seeking degrees in psychology and in art.
“Memories are more than just the ability to hold something or someone in the mind. They are a real part of the human experience. They are triggered by feelings, sounds, and smells of what actually happened,” Maxwell said. “In choosing the facial features rendered for this exhibition, my desire is to spark a similar understanding from the viewer through a conveyed psychological mood. I want people to connect to their own memories and experiences through my paintings.”
The exhibit is open to the public and admission is free.
