LYNCHBURG, TN (Feb. 24, 2016) — The Motlow State Community College art department will present an exhibit of new work by Murfreesboro artist Glenn Merchant, Mar. 1 to 24 at the Eoff Hall Gallery on the Moore County campus.

Eoff Hall Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. There will be a reception for Merchant on Mar. 1, beginning at 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. The public is invited and encouraged to attend the reception and meet the artist.

Merchant is an alumnus of Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing. His studio is located in downtown Murfreesboro.

"I paint and draw my immediate surroundings; taking note of the commonplace and celebrating it," said Merchant. "It's through the painting's internal light and environment that I hope to find a certain emotional climate. I fix a subject in mind and set the light in the painting first. During the process the work is in constant flux until it finds resolution with surprise."
