The Hunter Museum of American Art will host a gallery discussion about their new exhibit, “A Painter’s Hand: The Works of Adolph Gottlieb,” on Saturday. UTC art professors Drs. Gavin Townsend and Jordan Amirkhani will lead the discussion. Gottlieb was an abstract expressionist painter whose paintings were “central to the development of mid-20th-century painting in America,” according to a release on the exhibit.
