NACOGDOCHES, Texas - An artist's reception for the exhibition "Christopher Troutman: Drawing and Narrative" is slated for 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, in Griffith Gallery on the Stephen F. Austin State University campus.

The exhibition, which features Troutman's beautifully rendered drawings portraying scenes from urban daily life, will continue showing through Oct. 14.

John Handley, director of galleries at SFA, describes Troutman as "a master draftsman, able to create visually compelling imagery that touches on the real and the imaginary."

"His images are complex in their narrative and visual representation as well as in their use of unusual perspective," Handley said.

Admission to the exhibition, which is hosted by the SFA School of Art and sponsored in part by the Friends of the Visual Arts and Nacogdoches Junior Forum, is free.

Gallery hours are from 12:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. For more information, call (936) 468-1131. Griffith Fine Arts Building is located at 2222 Alumni Drive.
