Graphic designer Aggie Toppins is the first featured artist in Pellissippi State Community College’s art series this fall.


Toppins’ recent work, titled Palimpsests, will be on exhibit Aug. 27-Sept. 14 at Pellissippi State’s Bagwell Center for Media and Art Gallery on the College’s Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.

While the gallery hours are 10 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, an opening reception for Toppins’ exhibit will be held 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, with an artist lecture to follow at 7 p.m.

Palimpsests is a series of collage-based prints rooted in the practice of psychogeography.

“I use extant materials that pass through my life while traveling to construct compositions that index my experience while attempting to capture the ways experience leaves its trace on me,” explained Toppins, who is head of the art department at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

Toppins’ recent work is just the first of several offerings in The Arts at Pellissippi State this fall. Info here.
