Tennessee native Linda Williams McCune will feature her sculptures and drawings in the exhibition Work of Art in the Milliken Art Gallery in February of 2019. McCune has held the lead professor positions in art history, fine arts, and art education, as well as Academic Program Director in the Department of Visual Arts of Greenville Technical College winning the College Professor of the Year and the National NISOD Award presented at the University of Texas at Austin for college teaching excellence. Her “work addresses materiality and the ancestral and psychic connections that bind people to each other over place and time. Her sculpture and more recent drawing series constitute a diverse body of work based on shared issues she has sustained for over three decades,” describes David Houston, Director of The Bo Bartlett Center, for South Writ Large.
McCune received her Bachelors of Fine Arts from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and her M.F.A. from the University of South Carolina at Columbia. She has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions across the U.S. and internationally. Her work is in many public and private collections including the South Carolina State Art Collection, Columbia Museum of Art, Bank of America, Regions Bank, Hunter Museum of American Art, and the Asheville Museum of Art, among others.
Work of Art: Linda Williams McCune will run from February 7-28, 2019. McCune will present a Gallery Talk on February 7th at 6:00pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00pm.
The exhibition is located in the Milliken Art Gallery and is free of charge. Gallery hours are Sunday – Thursday 2:00-5:00pm. The Gallery is closed during school holidays.
