Shorter University hosting art exhibit by Frank Murphy
January 14, 2011 - Shorter University’s Arnold Art Gallery will host “Seeing is Believing,” an exhibition by artist Frank Murphy Jan. 18 through Feb. 4.
An artist’s reception and lecture will be held at the gallery Tuesday, Jan. 18, at 2:30 p.m. The reception is open to the public and is free of charge.
Frank Murphy serves as a campus minister at both Berry College and Georgia Highlands College. In 2006, he was commissioned by the Georgia Baptist Convention to paint large-scale murals in the lobby and Ministry Center of the Georgia Baptist Convention headquarters in Duluth.
Much of Murphy’s art relates to common threads within his ministry that include redemption, reconciliation, joy, faith, compassion, mercy and love. This exhibit will feature recent work of biblical stories, narrative depictions from literature, portraits of unusual holy men and the preparatory work for the commissioned Georgia Baptist Convention murals.
The Arnold Art Gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Admission into the gallery is free.
