“Spotlight” focuses on the practices of three professional artists who share graceful approaches and minimal color palettes. Judith McWillie, professor emerita of drawing and painting at UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art, explores spirituality and history through a series of paintings documenting “Beloved Land,” a ceremony held earlier this summer at the Smithonia Plantation House in honor of Native Americans and enslaved African Americans who were buried there. Inspired by travels to Japan, Tulane University printmaking professor Teresa Cole contributes a series of hand-dyed works using washi, a style of paper made from mulberry bark. Pete Schulte, who teaches at the University of Alabama, offers a collection of graphite drawings.
