Adam Trest Art Gallery Reception: Storytelling

October 5, 2023
5:00 pm to 6:00 pm

About this event

The campus and community are invited to a free gallery reception to enjoy refreshments and view an exhibition of recent work by artist Adam Trest. Works included in the exhibit come from Trest's "Mississippi: Lost and Found" series.

According to Trest, "It is a celebration of the story of Mississippi and the flora and fauna that make our state unique. Each painting represents a region of our state."

Along with the "Lost and Found" paintings, visitors to the gallery will get to see the process of book illustration in a display of original sketches, watercolor illustrations and publisher's proofs for "The Lantern House." This endearing children's book, written by Erin Napier and illustrated by Adam Trest, spent three weeks on the New York Times' best-seller list.

Trest is giving a public talk about his artwork at 2 p.m. Oct. 5 in Giles Hall's Harrison Auditorium.
