Professor Morton's Art on Exhibit Near Nashville

The artwork of Covenant College professor Jeffrey Morton is on exhibit at The Renaissance Center in Dickson, TN, outside Nashville January 25-March 1. An opening reception is being held January 25 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Both the exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public.


"Jeffrey Morton's work delves heavily into nature and the elements that allow us to connect with it on a primal and instinctive level," said Armon Means, curator for The Renaissance Center. "This common point of interaction or access is something he uses in various ways. His work varies from subtle abstractions to intricate wall constructions, though all stem from a desire to understand our relationship to the environments around us."


Largely known for his paintings, Morton has exhibited widely, including locally at the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chattanooga, the Nashville Airport, and as far as 141 Gallery in Sendai, Japan.


The galleries of The Renaissance Center are open 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The center is located at 855 Highway 46 South in Dickson, 35 miles west of Nashville.
