Women in the Arts Lecture and Exhibit: Allie Wilkinson

Lecture: Parotti Hall 6:30 p.m. (Also available via Zoom at https://wnmu.zoom.us/j/89895091678) Exhibit Opening: 7:30 p.m. McCray Gallery Exhibit closes: October 9 Allie Wilkinson’s work oscillates between representation and abstraction, united by the materials she uses. Her largest single work ‘endless,’ is 234 feet long to date.
