Art Exhibit “Come, Meet Me At The Mirage” Opens At Southern Adventist University

Thursday, September 20, 2018

The public is invited to a gallery opening titled “Come, Meet Me at the Mirage” featuring the work of Janelle Junn, MFA, alum of Southern Adventist University. Hosted by the School of Visual Art and Design on Oct. 4 at 6 p.m., the event will be in the John C. Williams Gallery in Brock Hall on the university’s campus, with light refreshments served. Her work will be on display through Nov. 5. 

Ms. Junn hails from Chattanooga and, after receiving her bachelor’s degree in fine art from Southern, earned her master’s degree from Pratt Institute. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. 

“Come, Meet Me at the Mirage” features a new body of Ms. Junn’s paintings.  "Through these paintings, she explores the mental and physical state of the “runner’s high” through imagery inspired by ultra-marathons in deserts around the world. A runner herself, she uses repetitive lines and shifting planes to reflect the constant nature of running in these uncompromising and desolate landscapes. Her paintings are an abstraction of the physical and spiritual connection between the athlete and his or her environment," organizers said. 

For more information, contact the School of Visual Art and Design at 423-236-2732.

TVA Land Grab

The Georgetown land grab is just ‘Business as Usual’ for TVA. For the past 80 years they’ve shown their stripes in this matter - 170,000 acres seized at LBL, countless acreage taken in the Tennessee River Valley. Land taken for coal and nuclear sites. All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: USA Today Is Wrong

After spending half of a century in the newspaper business, you will find it universal that one’s “personal ethics” demand you leave children off the news page.

You don’t take a kid’s picture at his daddy’s trial and, more than anything, never publish a word that would cause a child ... (click for more)
