Samford Art Gallery opens the new academic year with an exhibit of work by School of the Arts Visual Arts professor Richard Dendy. Dendy’s oil and gouache paintings, executed from life, on site, seek to record time and place, and also, by heightening element, to engage the viewer in the act of painting itself.

“Being Here: Modern Paintings in Post Modern Times” opens Aug. 22 and closes Sept. 25. The gallery will host a public reception Sept. 11, 5-7 p.m., prior to the annual School of the Arts Faculty Gala at 7:30.

The gallery is open 9 a.m-4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
