Circular Sightings &
The Hum of Humanity

November 1-26, 2023

Greetings from the Eisemann Center!

Thank you for subscribing to our monthly Visual Arts Newsletter, Brushstrokes. We hope you find it informative and inviting. The Forrest and Virginia Green Mezzanine Gallery is free to view and open daily to the public. Located in the heart of Galatyn Parkway, and steps from the DART rail, our monthly art installation is not something you want to miss. For more information on Visual/Public Art at the Eisemann Center, exhibit schedule, and all information for those wanting to exhibit their work, click here.

Hugh DeWitte is a Dallas based artist currently living near the High Five Interchange, one of the tallest highway overpasses in the world. This was the inspiration for his most recent works and the exhibition coming to the Forrest and Virginia Green Gallery in November, Circular Sightings & The Hum of Humanity. These "highwayscapes" express the energy, spirit, and beauty found along these fast-paced roads of the metroplex, a metaphor for the hum of everyday modern life. Using layers, circular motions, long strokes, and primal markings, DeWitte explores the nature of our urban landscape.

Hugh Dewitte has a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute with a major in Design and a minor in Sculpture. He began his career in Graphic Design working at Robert A. Wilson & Associates and applied award-winning creative thinking to several Fortune 50 clients for over 30 years earning him multiple national and international innovation awards including a design patent for Procter & Gamble. He opened an art studio in 2022 where he has expanded on his fine arts career, pursuing various projects in printmaking, metal sculpture, and fine art commissions.
