The spring semester of fine-arts events at Berry College opens with an exhibition of works by sculptor McArthur Freeman.

"Finding Form: Explorations in Digital Sculpture" will be on view from Monday, Jan. 13, to Friday, Feb. 7, in Moon Gallery on the Rome, Ga., campus.

Freeman, an assistant professor of art at the University of South Florida, Tampa, will be present for a gallery talk at 7 p.m. on opening day.

"I create images and objects that explore race, double consciousness and the construction of identity," Freeman says in a news release. "The images are a synthesis of children's book illustrations, fairy tales and invented characters with historical narratives, images from popular culture and social critique to create a wonderland-like world that has gone disturbingly awry, but is seductively beautiful."

Freeman teaches animation and digital modeling. He holds a Master of Art and Design in Animation, New Media and Digital Imaging from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, and a Master of Fine Art in painting from Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
