    Pryor Art Gallery Hosts "Oiled Fantastic" Exhibit

    Columbia State Community College’s Pryor Art Gallery will host the “Oiled Fantastic” exhibit March 23 – April 22, an artist’s reception will be held on March 29. The exhibit features eight accomplished and awarded oil painters from Middle Tennessee.

    “Oil painting has historically been held high as the premium of mediums in the art world,” said Michele Wilkinson, Pryor Art Gallery curator. “I gathered these artists together for the viewers to explore the artist’s imaginations and see how they visually pull the viewer into their fantasy.”
