'Pulp Fiction' Displayed at UAM

Danielle Thomas

   The University of Arkansas at Monticello hosted the art exhibit, "Pulp Fiction: Ted Barnes & Preston Gilchrist" from Oct. 17 to Nov. 17 in the Fred J. Taylor Library and Technology Gallery.

   The two artists on display were Ted Barnes and Preston Gilchrist. Barnes is a professor of Art and Choir of the division of Visual and Performing Arts at Louisiana College in Pineville, La. Gilchrist is the director of Exhibitions at River Oaks Arts Center in Alexandria, La. He majored in art at the University of New Orleans and did his graduate work at Louisiana Tech.

   The artists said they chose to display their exhibit at UAM because they welcome the opportunity to show anywhere, especially at colleges.

   The exhibit consisted of paintings and mixed media collages that show images inspired by American culture and the media.

   "My inspiration comes from stories and things that have happened to me and people I know," Gilchrist said.

   The artists came to campus Nov. 17 for the closing reception and gallery talk.

   Students and faculty went to the exhibit to view the artwork and meet the artists.

   Amanda Williams, a UAM student, said, "I really liked (the exhibit). I want to be an art major, so it was a good experience for me to visit the exhibit and look at professional art."

   Barnes and Gilchrist also have artwork on display at the Alexandria Museum in Alexandria, La.
