Event Description:

Lincoln Memorial University's School of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences' Art Program would like to invite you to visit our latest art exhibition and reception at the LMU Center for the Arts. We are pleased to present the senior capstone exhibition Appalachia: Angels and Spirits by graduating senior Annie Greer on from November 18 – December 6, 2019. There will be an artist's reception on Thursday November 21, 2019 from 5-7pm. Light refreshments will be provided. This exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

In this body of work, Greer harnesses the power of stories and myths that influence almost every facet of life, creating a narrative that sways our perceptions and actions. This narrative may be positive or negative and it can either break or build stereotypes. Old narratives created by those outside of Appalachia have painted the region in an unfavorable view for generations. These narratives have formed the stereotypes that still broadcast today: the people are simple, the land worthless, and the culture ignorant. To refute these stereotypes, we make our own stories based on truth.

Other Details:
The artist's goal with Appalachia: Angels and Spirit is to engage the audience with an intriguing story, perhaps of a being who encapsulates music or a former shepherd of pioneers. Once their attention is captured, the research behind the creation of the beings is introduced. They can learn about Appalachia's melting pot of musical history or about the adventurous souls who braved the wilderness. These new narratives can not only entertain but teach people about the rich and varied culture, the beliefs and strengths of the people, and the vivid natural environment which encompass Appalachia.
The LMU Center for the Arts houses the Art Program at LMU and is nestled in the historic town of Cumberland Gap, TN. The Art Program and the Gallery at the LMU Arts Center strives to bring cutting edge contemporary art from local and regional artists to the LMU community. We aim to foster conversation about the place of visual arts and how they impact the diverse community of Appalachia in the 21st Century. The LMU Center for the Arts is located at 703 Brooklyn St. in Cumberland Gap and is open Monday through Thursday from 10am-5pm, on Friday from 10am-2pm, and by appointment.
