The UTC Cress Gallery of Art will present the works of Wendy White from October 11 to December 2. All events and the exhibition are open to the public and free of charge. The gallery hours are 9:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. Monday – Friday and 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The Cress Gallery of Art is located in the lobby of the UTC Fine Arts Center. This exhibition is part of the Diane Marek Visiting Artist Series.

White will give her artist’s lecture on Tuesday, October 11 at 5:30 p.m. in room 356 of the UTC Fine Arts Center. The lecture will be followed by an opening reception that begins at 7:30 p.m.

In her 6 Years / 6 Works show, White fuses painting, sculpture, and architectural reference into large scale, multi-paneled, and sensitively composed explosions of color and mark.  This exhibition features large works dating between 2006 and 2011 tracking White’s development and emergence as a prominent figure contributing to the revitalized course of painting and abstraction in the 21st Century.

White received a BFA (1993) from the Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, Georgia with a concentration in fibers and an MFA (2003) in painting from the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University, New Jersey. She currently serves on the faculty of Mason Gross School of the Arts.

White’s exhibition is supported by The Friends of the Cress Gallery. For more information about the Cress Gallery of Art contact Ruth Grover at or call 423-304-9789, visit and join the Cress Gallery of Art on Facebook. For more information about the artist, visit
