With photography, sculpture, paintings, ceramics and mosaics populating the historic campus of Virginia Intermont College, the public is invited to enjoy the college’s first “Art Walk” Saturday, Nov. 12.

The college is renowned for fine arts and photography and digital imaging programs and visitors can sample a wide array of work by talented students and faculty during five stops along the “Årt Walk.” The stops include the lobby of Harrison-Jones Memorial Hall, the President’s House, the Anne R. Worrell Fine Arts Center, the Turner Student Center and the Blevins Art Building.

Students will be featured in special exhibits and, along with faculty, will be on hand to talk about their work. The faculty work will include sculptures by Marvin Tadlock, paintings by Perry Johnson and Sam Morrow and photography by Jay Phyfer, Joe Champagne, Neil Staples, Justin James Reed and Megan Pinch.

There will also be a tour of Downtown's "Art in Public Places" starting at 10am from the VI campus.

The “Art Walk” is free and runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Participants will be provided a map to make the rounds and refreshments also will be provided.

The event is part of the college’s celebration of Family Weekend Nov. 11 through 13.
