Milligan’s ‘Art from the Buffalo School’ opens at Nelson Fine Art Center on Feb. 3

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Jan. 20, 2017) — Throughout the month of February, an array of artwork from Milligan College students will be on display in the exhibit “Art from the Buffalo School” at the Nelson Fine Art Center in downtown Johnson City, Tennessee.

The show, now in its 15th year, features student paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media and graphic design and will have its opening night and reception on Friday, Feb. 3, from 7-9 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

“With an exhibit at Nelson’s, both Milligan art students and the public benefit,” said Alice Anthony, associate professor of art at Milligan. “Students have the opportunity to experience showing their work in a professional gallery, which is a great learning experience for them and a fun way to interact with our community.”

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