Belmont University alumnus Todd Williamson returns to campus with the opening of his art exhibit “Blurring the Lines.” Williamson graduated from Belmont in 1988 with a Bachelor of Music.
On Wed., Jan. 28 at 3:30 p.m., Williamson combines his musical and visual arts talents with a performance in Harton Hall. The performance is a combination of three elements: music written by Greg Walter, a Williamson painting that is slowly revealed and a mirror attached to the back of the canvas to reflect the audience as it slowly turns. The purpose of the performance is to show the audience the influences and emotions that a visual artist feels when creating an original piece of artwork.
After the performance, the opening reception will take place in the Leu Art Gallery at 4 p.m. Williamson’s exhibit, “Blurring the Lines,” examines the question, “What influences an artist to keep painting?” The performance and opening reception are free and open to the public. For more information, call (615) 460-6770. “Blurring the Lines” will be in the Leu Gallery through April 2, 2009.
