Huntingdon Black Student Union Sponsors Exhibit
Montgomery, Ala.—The Huntingdon College Black Student Union invites the public to enjoy the fifth annual Black History Month Art Exhibit on the Huntingdon College campus. This year’s exhibit will feature the work of Huntsville artist Willette Battle. The opening reception will be held Thursday, February 21, 7:00–9:30 p.m. in the College’s Seay Twins Art Gallery. Ms. Battle’s work will be on display 6:00–9:00 p.m. daily through February 27. Works will be available for purchase.
Known for its vibrant color palette and freeing sense of play, Battle’s paintings and sculptures depict themes of community, Afrocentrism, and inner strength. Vivid hues illustrate her overwhelming desire to cloak life’s darkest moments in a fresh coat of colorful paint or whimsical papier-mâché. Battle earned her Bachelor of Arts in studio art and Bachelor of Science in computer science from Albany State University and her Master of Fine Arts in painting with an electronic studio emphasis at Howard University.
The annual Black History Month Art Exhibit is part of the College’s Cultural and Community Events Series, sponsored by Baptist Health. Seay Twins Gallery is located at 3140 Jim Wilson Loop East on the Huntingdon campus. Parking is available at the Gibbs Tennis Center entrance off of Narrow Lane Road.
