Pellissippi State Community College is currently hosting “Quiet Histories and Futures From the Republic,” a 15-day exhibit by artist Jason Stout, at the Hardin Valley Campus. The event runs through Feb. 6.

Stout’s vivid and political work deals primarily with variations of past, current and future narratives, almost always concerning our identity or history. He is known for his Southern interpretation of American culture. He completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio art at the University of Tennessee at Martin and earned his Master of Fine Arts in painting at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Stout is an assistant professor of art at UT, Martin.

The exhibit and a closing reception, both of which are free and open to the public, take place in the Bagwell Center Gallery. Regular exhibit hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6:30 p.m. The closing reception is Feb. 6, 4-6 p.m.
