“Inward Journeys,” Oct. 3 – 21 by visiting artist Megan Levacy. Levacy is a mixed media painter from Johnson City, who is currently an instructor at East Tennessee State University. She graduated in the spring with a master of fine of arts in painting at ETSU and also holds a master of arts in painting and a bachelor of fine arts in photography and printmaking at Arkansas State University. Levacy’s exhibit explores ways of navigating chaotic and unknown situations that arise during periods of transition. Her works were inspired and influenced by photographs of deep space, sunsets over the mountains of East Tennessee and images of major disasters such as volcanic explosions and the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Over these images, Levacy depicts flocks of birds flying toward unknown destinations in a variety of patterns. Levacy's works have been exhibited nationwide, including Tennessee, North Carolina, Illinois, New York, South Carolina and Arkansas. Levacy will speak about her work from 4 – 5 p.m. on Oct. 10 in the Behan Arena Theatre in the Annie Hogan Byrd Fine Arts Building on campus. Following from 5 – 7 p.m. will be a reception for the artist at the Allison Gallery. She will return to campus on October 21 to critique work by Tusculum students.
