Mount Union's Crandall Art Gallery Features "Terry Hitt: A Retrospective"
April 27, 2010
The work of artist Terry Hitt will be on display in Mount Union College's Crandall Art Gallery from November 2 - December 13.
Hitt received his bachelor's degree from Otterbein College and master's degree from the University of Cincinnati. He has retired from his position of associate professor at the University of Dayton, where he spent over 25 years teaching art. His works have been featured in many exhibitions, and he recently won the judges' award for "works on paper" at the Rosewood Gallery in March 2000.
"Being conscious of life is more than the sensation of life - it is the awareness of connections between the self and the universe. Painting is a process of affirming relationship to the physical stuff of life by transforming charcoal, pastel, paint and paper into a new order of beauty and meaning," said Hitt.
A reception honoring Hitt will be held Saturday, November 2 from 3 - 5 p.m. at the Gallery, and the community is invited to attend. Crandall Art Gallery is located within Cope Music Hall, on the corner of Simpson Street and Union Avenue. The Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 - 6 p.m.
