Free Public Reception for Artists Set for Monday, Feb. 2 at Todd Gallery
(MURFREESBORO)—Beginning Feb. 3, the Department of Art’s Gallery at Todd Hall will present “Revisited,” an exhibit featuring the collective works of four of its retired faculty members. The artists whose work will be showcased are Ollie Fancher, who taught graphic design and drawing; Jim Gibson, sculpture; Klaus Kallenberger, jewelry; and David LeDoux, painting. An opening reception in their honor will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday Feb. 2, in the gallery lobby. The public is encouraged to attend. Eric Snyder, gallery curator, said that because these individuals “contributed a great deal to the Department of Art’s program and curriculum and have been asked to return to MTSU in honor of their hard work.” “It will be great to welcome these men back and see what they have created since retiring from the department,” remarked Jean Nagy, art department chairwoman. “Revisited” will be on display Feb. 3-20 in the gallery, which is located on the second floor of MTSU’s Todd Building. The gallery is open 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays and closed all state holidays. Admission is always free and exhibits are open to the public.
