‘Art from the Buffalo School’ opens at Nelson Fine Art Center

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (Jan. 25, 2013) — The Nelson Fine Art Center in downtown Johnson City will feature an exclusive exhibition of art and photography work by Milligan College fine arts students throughout the month of February.

The exhibit is titled “Art from the Buffalo School.” Opening night along with a reception will be Friday, Feb. 1, from 7–9 p.m., with the exhibit on display throughout the month of February.

Students will present their photography, paintings, drawings, mixed media and graphic design in the exhibit.

“Student work can be fresh and emotional, and as a result, it challenges our viewers,” said Dick Nelson, owner of The Nelson Fine Art Center. “Students also really benefit from an outside exhibit; they learn about the process of showing their work to the public.”

This is the 11th year Milligan College and students have participated in “Art from the Buffalo School.”

The Milligan fine arts department offers five areas of emphasis: art, film studies, music, photography and theater. All fine arts majors are designed to educate the whole person while increasing the student’s appreciation and knowledge of human creativity.

“The fine arts major at Milligan encourages students to strive for the highest standard of artistic excellence,” said Alice Anthony, associate professor of art. “They are very gifted and talented artists and we’re happy to have their work featured at the Nelson Gallery.”

The exhibit’s opening night and reception, as well as the presentation throughout the month of February, are free and open to the public.
