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.

When installed inside, ‘endless’ becomes sculptural, cascading to the floor and rippling into itself. It fills the space and moves softly in breezes stirred by moving bodies, seeming to breathe. Francis McCray Gallery of Contemporary Art Gallery Hours: Monday 1pm - 4pm Wednesday 12pm - 6pm Friday...
