Thursday, September 26, 2013

"When Big Artists and Architects Were Little Kids" an exhibit of works by Greg Constantine, will be on display at Southern Adventist University's John C. Williams Art Gallery on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. The exhibit will feature images from Mr. Constantine's book series about the imaginary childhood of artists and architects.

Southern's School of Visual Art and Design, which is hosting the exhibit, will be inviting around 40 schools in the community to visit the exhibit, as they hope to expose younger students to a bit of art history with a twist. 

Mr. Constantine, whose work has been displayed in galleries all over the United States, will be on hand at the opening of the exhibit for a meet and greet and book signing. He will also be giving a lecture on the possibility of success for Christian artists on Oct. 9 at 2 p.m.  Both the lecture and the exhibit are free and open to the public.  

The exhibit will be open from Oct. 10-Dec. 15.
