Hunter Invitational: Special exhibition at Hunter Museum features eight regional artists

Mindy Herrin: “Laparoscopy II”

Hunter Invitational IV, an exhibition highlighting regional artwork, opens Friday, Sept. 21 at Hunter Museum.

The opening reception and exhibit preview on Thursday, Sept. 20 at 6 p.m. will allow museum guests to meet the artists.

Hunter Museum began the Invitational series in 2007 to recognize and promote regional artwork. This fourth iteration features the work of Amanda Brazier, Tara Hamilton, Mindy Herrin, Charles Ladson, Sisavanh Phouthavong, John Douglas Powers, Andrew Scott Ross and Vadis Turner.

The artists were chosen over the course of a year as Chief Curator Nandini Makrandi visited numerous studios around east and middle Tennessee, north Georgia and north Alabama.

The exhibition will showcase all new works, including paintings by Chattanooga artist Brazier, who mixes her own paints from pigments processed from the soils near her home, and Hamilton, a comic book and digital artist from Chattanooga.
