Artist Katelyn Collier featured at Tucker Gallery
The exhibition, “Illumination”, features original paintings of senior art student, Katelyn Collier. On display at the Marian Acree Tucker Gallery at Judson College in Marion, AL the show opens April 27, 2015 and continues through April 30, 2015. There will be an artist’s reception on Monday, April 27 from 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm in the gallery, and the artist will give a brief lecture on her work in Adams-Armstrong Lecture Hall from 5:00 pm – 5:30 pm. All events are free and open to the public.
Collier draws inspiration from literature throughout the ages, and images embodying saints, gods, and goddesses are the main subjects for her work.
Originally from Irvington, Alabama, Collier entered Judson College as a freshman in 2011. She was first introduced to art by her grandfather, who encouraged her to grow in her artistic abilities by giving her little projects to do (making birdhouses, painting butterflies and flowers, etc.). Upon entering the public school system, she had opportunities to take classes such as Arts and Crafts, where she was better able to grow in her abilities.
Collier’s time at Judson has allowed her to grow even further in her abilities, as she has become much more confident as an artist. The works in the upcoming exhibition are for sale. For more information about the work or the artist, contact Jamie Adams at 334.683.5251.
