Birdhouses, sculpture, graphic design among art on display this month at Pellissippi State

Birdhouse made by artist Matt Tullis with found objects
This birdhouse is among the Matt Tullis art on display at Pellissippi State through Feb. 22.

Silkscreen gig posters for bands, sculptures and birdhouses may seem like an eclectic mix of objects, but for artist Matt Tullis, it’s all interrelated.

Pellissippi State Community College will display a variety of Tullis’ work through Feb. 22 in the Bagwell Center for Media and Art Gallery on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

The exhibit, the latest installment in The Arts at Pellissippi State, is free and open to the public. The Gallery has expanded its hours and is now open 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday through Friday.

A closing reception with the artist will be held 3-5 p.m. Feb. 22.

Tullis, who teaches graphic design at Western Kentucky University, is also a sculptor and raconteur. He titled the show “Pollinate” in reference to how all facets of his work are interrelated and develop from cross-pollination, he said.
