Event Details

February 12-29. On view in the Visitors Center.

“I love every season in Memphis except the gloomy, sleety, and bitterly cold winter. So, to cheer up myself and my viewers during inclement weather, I paint subjects that depict beautiful and cheerful scenes. The current show features paintings of pretty flowers, sailboats, beach scenes, and other happy subjects. I use different media and styles and the expertise I acquired while training with the renowned Tennessee artist, Fred Rawlinson.  For most of my professional career, I worked as a scientist at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and as an adjunct Professor at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. I worked with sophisticated imaging technologies that use microscopes, lasers, and microprocessors to study the architecture of molecules, viruses, bacteria, cells, and tissues. The images I produced garnered National and International awards including the prestigious Nikon International small–world competition. As an artist, I was selected in many juried art shows at the local and National level, received multiple awards, and held numerous solo shows. I immensely enjoy exhibiting my art and I sincerely hope you enjoy viewing it as well.” -Gopal Murti
