Fine Arts Gallery to host abstract art exhibit by Melissa Dunn

The University of Tennessee at Martin Department of Visual and Theatre Arts will host an abstract art exhibit titled “Blind Runner” by Melissa Dunn from Jan. 19 – Feb. 19.

Dunn is a Memphis-based artist who teaches adult art courses at Flicker Street Studio and volunteers at the Carpenter Art Garden afterschool art program. Dunn was recently awarded a public art commission by the Urban Art Commission, as well as a residency at Crosstown Arts in Memphis. While Dunn is unable to be present at the exhibit’s opening night, a Zoom interview with the artist is being scheduled to learn more about her work.

The exhibit’s premiere will be livestreamed via the department’s Facebook page at 5:30 p.m., Jan. 19. The exhibit will be open to the public from 1 – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday, and all guests are required to wear masks.
