Here & There: Brent Funderburk- Painting and Drawings
September 11 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Mississippi State University Department of Art Galleries is proud to present a new exhibition of work by William L. Giles Distinguished Professor of Art, Brent Funderburk.
More than half of the watercolor, acrylic paintings, and charcoal drawings in the exhibition, Here and There, are new works from the past three years. These recent pieces are shown alongside artwork dating as early as the 1980s, when Funderburk and his family first arrived in Mississippi from his native North Carolina, progressing through his years teaching at MSU, and including his seven years of service as head of the Department of Art. After 40 years of teaching, Funderburk retired in 2018. “Since jumping away from teaching, I’ve been in a ‘one-person class’, traveling to New Mexico and the west, to the Appalachian Mountains, and, mostly, into the backyard, studio, and woods where I live in Mississippi.”
Here and There: Brent Funderburk – Paintings and Drawings 1981–2021 will be open to the public through September 17, 2021, in the Cullis Wade Depot Art Gallery, located next to Barnes and Noble Bookstore on MSU’s campus. Gallery hours are Monday–Friday, 9 am–5 pm.
