MUW exhibit features 42 paintings by Jack Willis
COLUMBUS, Miss. -- A colorful exhibition of 42 paintings, monotypes and drawings by Jack Willis of Memphis, Tenn., will hang in the Eugenia Summer Gallery at Mississippi University for Women until Tuesday, Sept. 24.
"Willis' work has vibrant color and an approach to developing abstracted figurative imagery that is similar to a number of artists in the 1950s," said Larry Feeney, gallery director.
Many of Willis' works are based on the theme the "Rainbow Nation" and others are from drawings of dancers.
A native of Texas, Willis did his undergraduate studies in that state and completed a master of arts and master of fine arts at the University of Iowa. He has taught at several universities, including Delta State University in Cleveland.
Located in the Fine Arts Building, the gallery is free, handicap accessible and open to the public. For more information, call the Division of Fine and Performing Arts at (662) 329-7341.
