King University News :: King Photography Students to Exhibit Work at March 8 Art D’Vine Gallery Hop

King University’s senior Photography students will showcase their work during the upcoming Art D’Vine Gallery Hop art show in downtown Bristol, TN/VA on Friday, March 8, 2013 from 6-9 p.m.

The first exhibition is at CityMug's Student Gallery located at 629 State Street. The photography by senior Photography majors Josh Hutton and Nicole Poyo explores the idea of place.  Hutton's photographs highlight the beautiful lush landscapes of Northern Ireland where he spent a semester studying abroad.  Poyo's work shows the land use and inner workings of a cattle ranch in middle Tennessee. 

The second exhibition is at One Night Stand Gallery, currently located at Believe in Bristol's office at 36 Moore Street.  The exhibit explores the joy of photography and the unique things the medium can do such as play with scale, freeze motion, and capture light.  The exhibiting artists are senior Photography major Jesse Cheers, junior Marketing major John Klink, and freshman Photography major Tessa Klingensmith. 

Art D’Vine, a gallery hop and wine tasting on State Street is designed to engage the community through exposure to a variety of artistic genres.  The public is invited to stroll through participating galleries including Kil'n Time, Benjamin Walls Gallery, CityMug, 606 State Street Gallery, One of a Kind Gallery, The One Night Stand Gallery, Bridgeforth Design Studio, blowfish emporium, Purple Loon, Pretty Girl Station, and Hatching Perspective Gallery.
