“This fall we have an excellent lineup of three professional art exhibitions in our Omega Gallery,” said David Underwood, professor of Art and director of Art Department Exhibitions. “From watercolor, to letterpress art, to photography we look forward to inviting the community to join us as we showcase these talented artists and diverse mediums.

He is an active member of the Knoxville Watercolor Society.
