Strand exhibit opens Nov. 8 at Milligan

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (October 21, 2009) – “Heaven in a Wildflower,” a photography exhibit featuring the work of Kristie Strand, a Milligan College senior from Kingsport, Tenn., opens Sunday, Nov. 8.

The exhibit will run through Nov. 14 in the Milligan Art Gallery, located in the lower level of Milligan’s Derthick Hall. There will be an opening reception on Nov. 8, from 2-4 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

“Heaven in a Wildflower” was inspired by an excerpt from “Auguries of Innocence,” a poem by William Blake. Strand’s work also reveals her faith and passion for fine arts.

“My photography is a reflection of my worldview and the view of our Creator,” Strand said. “I strive to create art that children can understand and delight in and that artists can appreciate.”
