‘Unique’ exhibit opens at McCune International Art Gallery


“Intersection,” an exhibit of artists who all hold positions at institutions of higher learning opened this week at Methodist University’s David McCune International Art Gallery. The exhibit, which will run through Dec. 1, is open to the public free of charge.

“Like all of our shows, this one will feature amazing artists and their works,” said Vilas Tonape, who is both the show’s curator and chair of Methodist’s art department. “But it will also be very unique in that it will lead the guest to an experience of appreciating not just the similarities of the art being presented, but also the differences. It’s truly an intersection, where people will visit the gallery from all walks of life and enjoy both commonality and differences. All are welcome and will enjoy this exhibit.”    

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays. The gallery will follow all campus safety protocols related to COVID-19.   

The artists featured are Winter Rusiloski: a landscape artist and assistant professor of painting at Baylor University; Soni Martin, a studio artist and professor of visual art at Fayetteville State University; Zhimin Guan, an international artist and professor of art at Minnesota State University Moorhead; and Andréa Keys Connell, a figure sculptor and associate professor of ceramics at Appalachian State University.
