The World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth presents two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning David McCullough who will discuss the dynamics and personalities that led to Orville Wright's first brief flight at Kill Devil Hills near Kitty Hawk, N.C. The entertaining McCullough focuses on a topic that takes readers to historical heights in 1903 unbeknown to what would come in aviation. McCullough has been speaking to sold-out audiences across the country about his research and discoveries through writing his current best-seller, The Wright Brothers.

The paintings in Gill’s upcoming exhibition When the World Went POP! reflect the interplay between realism and abstraction, while simultaneously bringing Pop Art into the present. Over the years, Gill has established his own technique combining mixed media with more traditional paint application. His paintings continue to be rich in the vibrant colors and thought-provoking irony common to the Pop Art movement, but his current process adds a modern awareness to these depictions. In the past, Gill’s contemporaries conceded that his art reflected both qualities of a contemporary consciousness and a classical tradition. His upcoming exhibition continues to be at once relevant and classic in this way.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 11, 2016.
