JOHNSON CITY (June 14, 2013) – “The Reliquaries,” an exhibit of 12 original works that convey a sense of life on the East Tennessee State University campus, has been extended by ETSU’s Reece Museum until Saturday, June 29.

The exhibit, co-sponsored by the ETSU Alumni Association and ETSU Foundation, features original works by regional artist William Bledsoe that capture the university’s landmarks and events in various seasons.

A closing reception at the Reece Museum on Thursday, June 27, from 5:30-7 p.m. will give visitors an opportunity to vote for their favorite painting, helping to define those most likely to see widespread use in other formats.  The paintings will eventually be reproduced as a variety of collectibles, such as a series of limited edition prints and other items for sale.

The Reece Museum is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Thursdays from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.  Admission is free, and parking passes are available for weekday visitors to the museum.  Group tours are also available.

For more information, to arrange a group tour, or for special assistance for those with disabilities, contact the Reece Museum at (423) 439-4392.
