Alumni Todd Williamson and Greg Walter are preparing for an art exhibition at the Villa di Donato in Naples Italy scheduled for November 2. The exhibition, “Surveillance: the art of being observed or observing,” is a collaboration of art and music, set to show the connections that exist between the two. Williamson’s art will be on display with specially composed music by Walter. A preview of the exhibit can be found on youtube.
Williamson graduated from Belmont in 1988 with a Bachelor of Music. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, serving as arts commissioner for West Hollywood. His work can be seen all around the world with exhibits in Japan, China, Italy, Germany, France, Korea, Spain and the United States.
Walter graduated from Belmont’s School of Music in 1987 as a Presser Scholar and was honored in 2014 with the University’s Encore Award, an award created to honor a Belmont University School of Music alumnus for achievement in the field of classical music. While at Belmont, he studied classical voice under Associate Professor of Voice Marjorie Halbert. Walter is currently a professor at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts where he teaches voice and serves as musical director.
