Belmont University’s Leu Art Gallery launches its newest exhibition Friday, Nov. 12, featuring Murfreesboro artist Anne Carothers, who works primarily in oil paintings and enamel. The exhibition is titled Color First; Creation Liberated.
Carothers, a member of the Tennessee Art League and Christians in the Visual Arts, says the works in the upcoming exhibition are inspired by a chapter in the Book of Romans. “I am inspired by Romans 8, by the thought of not only people but all creation being liberated by God. I choose color before subject matter as I explore people and landscapes through the Holy Spirit and my perspective as a southerner.”
The exhibit runs Nov. 12 through Dec. 10, 2004. Leu Art Gallery hours are 9 a.m.–10 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The Leu Gallery will be closed on Nov. 25-26 for Thanksgiving. While the exhibition opens Nov. 12, there will be an opening reception 6-8 p.m. Nov. 19.
