'Going Within ... and One Last Glimpse'

Painter Gay Arthur depicts architectural structures that are slated for demolition

Gay Arthur's solo exhibition, opening Thursday at In-Town Gallery, features historic sites that are scheduled to be torn down. The show, "Going Within ... and One Last Glimpse," invites viewers to look within, both literally and figuratively, and to take one last look at these buildings.

Arthur's paintings depict images of U.S. Pipe, Peerless Mill, a chapel at Fort McClellan in Anniston, Ala., Chamberlain Field House at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and The Redding House in Wildwood, Ga.

The artist has been working on this series since she graduated from UTC with an art degree in 2003. One group of paintings that focused on Wheland Foundry was selected for the permanent art collection in the United Way building.

Of her style, Arthur says: "Although my style is still representational, I feel as though I have become looser and a bit more edgy in my artwork. Intersecting geometrical planes, texture, light and shadow still plays large role in my work as well."

A reception for the show will be held Friday from 5 to 8 p.m.

"Going Within ... and One Last Glimpse" continues through September.

In-Town Gallery, 26 Frazier Ave., is open 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday. Call 267-9214.
