Carolyn Ford To Present Exhibition In Tennessee
A new art exhibition entitled “Storyteller: Solo Show” by Limestone College Professor of Art Carolyn Ford will be presented at the Eoff Hall Gallery on the campus of Motlow State Community College in Tullahoma, TN.
The exhibit, which will feature 56 ceramic carved tiles, will run from Feb. 12 through March 22. Ford will also present a special artist talk and lecture on Feb. 14 from 10 a.m. until noon at the gallery. The event is free and open to the public.
“It’s always nice to go home and speak about the importance of heritage as well as gratitude of regional and worldly experiences,” Ford said. “Tennesseeans are often the spinners of yarns, the writers of songs, and the long-winded exaggerators of tall tales.”
In addition to her lecture, Ford will be the visiting artist at Gordonsville High School in Gordonsville, TN, where she will speak to students about Limestone College’s Art Department, careers in art, and portfolio review tips.
“For those who know me and my art, you can see a direct correlation between the context of my upbringing influencing the content of my art,” Ford noted. “I am forever researching new folklore of each location I visit to see the similarities with my southern culture.”
Ford, the Chair of Limestone’s Art Department, has worked at the College since 2003. She teaches a variety of courses, including drawing, ceramics, 3D, and crafts.
