Freed-Hardeman University will host an art show featuring the work of alumnus and former FHU art professor Warren Greene and two of his students and FHU alumni, Amanda Bennie Brazier and Ryan Hogan. The show, called “Teacher and Students,” will be in the Troy Plunk Gallery March 14-April 13.
Greene was a professor of art at FHU until 2008. He obtained his Master of Fine Arts from Memphis College of Art. In the fall of 2012, he was appointed head of Lipscomb University’s art department in Nashville. His work is abstract and deals with beautiful built-up surfaces. His art is shown all over the region with gallery representation in Memphis.
Brazier graduated from FHU in 2007 with a B.A. in art and Spanish. She now lives in Chattanooga. Her art focuses on the abstract and deals with surface and patterns. Her exhibitions include Renaissance Regional Exhibition at The Renaissance Center in Dixon, Tenn., in 2011 and Curious Dwellings at the Twist Art Gallery in Nashville.
Hogan is a 2008 FHU art and philosophy graduate. He now lives in Nashville. His work is installation-based and is conceptually formulated using both common and uncommon materials.
The upcoming show will open March 14 with a reception and artist’s talk from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit may be seen during gallery hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
