The University of Tennessee at Martin Department of Visual and Theatre Arts will sponsor an exhibition of works by UT Martin alum and noted muralist Les MacDiarmid.
The exhibition will begin with an opening reception featuring the artist from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday on the second floor of the Paul Meek Library. The work will remain on display through Oct. 12.
MacDiarmid is a 2005 visual art studio graduate whose vibrant oil and acrylic paintings focus on various aspects of life and living in northwest Tennessee. He is both a painter and a mural artist and examples of his mural work can be found in homes, churches, businesses and public buildings throughout the region.
His work can also be viewed on his website, www.muralsbyles.com.
Exhibitions sponsored by the Department of Visual and Theatre Arts will be located in the Paul Meek Library throughout the fall semester while the campus fine arts building undergoes final preparations to reopen in the spring.
