The Art Gallery exhibit at Volunteer State Community College is displaying the works of Caroline Allison and Lain York. The exhibit is in the SRB Humanities Building at the Gallatin campus on the first floor near the entrance. The exhibit has been up since Feb. 28 and will continue until April 1.

Students and faculty will be able to go throughout the day to check out exquisite pieces of art at no cost.

“My work in this show continues to be influenced by architecture, landscape, memory, and finding a sense of place of the world. Having grown up in the middle of Tennessee, I have seen a lot of change particularly in the past 13 years,” said York.

According to the Tennessee Arts Commission website in 1990, York graduated with a B.A in painting and art history from University of Tennessee in Knoxville. York has been a director of the Zeitgeist Gallery for over 20 years and continues to influence the arts by spotlighting and exhibiting a variety of work from artists who continue the conversation of “what is art today?”

“For roughly the past 10 years, I have been at work on a specific type of image-making and mapping of our landscape,” said Allison. “In spending countless quiet hours in the landscape, I often returned to a thought I had as a child, that there is not one place on this wide earth that has not been touched or trodden upon or transformed by humankind.”

According to the official page of Zeitgeist, Allison was born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1972. She received her MFA from the school of the Art Institute of Chicago and her BA from the University of the South, Sewanee.
