Artwork by Wess Loudenslager will be on display at the Greater Memphis Arts Council, 8 S

An exhibition of artwork by Wess Loudenslager begins today at the Greater Memphis Arts Council, 8 S. Third St. GMAC will host a reception for the artist from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The Angel Series deals with the human figure with a combination of emotion and detachment. The acrylic on canvas paintings play tricks on the eye, causing the viewer to think at first glance of a collage.

The exhibit, which runs through May 16, is part of a series sponsored by the Memphis Arts Council and the UrbanArt Commission. The series has focused primarily on emerging artists in the community, as well as seasoned artists whose work is not frequently exhibited. For information, call Elizabeth Alley, 252-0802.
