PULASKI, Tenn. – Joe Reynolds, one of Martin Methodist College’s (MMC) art instructors, is a featured artist at the Tennessee Arts Commission Gallery in Nashville throughout February and March.

Reynolds earned an MFA in photography from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston. He earned a BFA in photography from East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN and a BA in journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Chapel Hill, NC. He has been recognized for his work with various awards, including the FY18 Individual Artist Fellowship in Photography from the Tennessee Arts Commission.

His featured piece, “In Communion with Soil,” details his shared human experience from his trip to Cristalândia through photos captured of and around the community. During his trip, he used a wide lens and large-format camera that forced him to truly experience the daily life instead of just observe it.

The Tennessee Arts Commission was created in 1967 by the Tennessee General Assembly with the special mandate to stimulate and encourage the presentation of the visual, literary, music and performing arts and to encourage public interest in the cultural heritage of Tennessee.
