University employee tells area stories through photographs
GRAMBLING, LA – Grambling State University’s Dunbar Gallery will host an exhibition entitled Mostly Skyz: The Grambling Area, by Terence C. Williams II now through November 8.
Williams received his bachelor of fine arts degree in sequential art from Savannah School of Art and Design in 2001. He moved to Grambling from Southern California in 2010 and is employed as a lab/studio equipment supervisor in the department of visual and performing arts. One of the differences he sees in the area is the weather, especially the clouds. He has documented these scenes from the Grambling area, shooting silhouetted photographs against dramatic skies.
Williams is connected through his family to the legacy of the university. He is the grandson of William McIntosh, former dean of liberal arts and Lucy McIntosh, retired department head and faculty in the department of sociology. Williams formed memories of the university, and the area, while visiting his grandparents throughout the years. He remembers attending Grambling State University summer camps on campus. Although his mother attended another university, two aunts are proud Grambling State alumni.
The public is invited to attend a reception for the artist on November 2 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Dunbar Gallery. The gallery is located in Dunbar Fine Arts Annex on Hutchinson Street in Grambling. Gallery hours are from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Accommodations are available for large groups and people with special needs. For more information about the exhibition, call 318-274-2274. This exhibition is sponsored in part by “Friends of the Arts.”
