Tusculum College will host “David Taylor-Retrospective Art Exhibition 2006-2016” beginning Friday, Nov. 10, at the Shulman Center on the Greeneville campus.
Taylor is a Jonesborough native and a self-taught artist. The focus of his work is East Tennessee waterfalls, but there are aspects of the show that will exhibit figurative and still life subject matter.
According to Bill Bledsoe, visiting assistant professor of visual communications and design at Tusculum, like many amateur artists, David’s early work was very basic, but he had reached a high level of execution that resulted in accomplished artwork. He was in the process of putting together his first one-man show when he died in September of 2016.
In honor of his artistry and commitment to excellence in his work, Tusculum College is enthusiastically supportive of hosting this show, said Bledsoe.
The opening will be on Friday, Nov. 10, with an opening reception running from 5-7 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. The show will be available for viewing Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to noon, and private viewings by appointment are available in the afternoons through Friday, Dec. 1. For appointments e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 423 948-8927.
