—"These collaborative works started out as an experimental conversation between two artists.”
These are the reflective words of artists Joseph and Misty Bennett, featured in a new exhibit that debuted in the Central Library’s Fourth Floor Gallery on Nov. 1 and on display through Dec. 30, 2016. The public is invited to meet both artists at an opening reception taking place this Saturday, Nov. 12, from 2-4 p.m. in the downtown Birmingham Public Library Fourth Floor Gallery area.
Both Joseph and Misty Bennett were among University of Montevallo art faculty and graduates whose artwork was featured in a separate exhibit at the Central Library Fourth Floor Art Gallery from Sept. 12 through Oct. 28, 2016. The Department of Art is one of the largest departments at the University of Montevallo. With a dedicated full-time faculty of 13 and over 250 art majors, students experience the challenges and have the resources to achieve the highest artistic level. Many choose to continue their education in graduate programs across the country.
