Berry College in Mount Berry, Georgia, recently opened a solo exhibit of Bryce Speed's artwork.

The "Gulfs" exhibit features a collection of framed pieces on paper, both in painting and drawing, presented so as to suggest a different reality. The college describes the work as both vague and volatile, as it makes disasters seem like natural events such as wind or fire.

Speed's work has been recognized in Scotland, as well as North Carolina and Alabama, and has been displayed at the Gadsen Museum of Art in Alabama and TEN Gallery in New Orleans.

Speed earned a bachelor's degree at the University of Mississippi and a master's at the University of Alabama, where he is currently an assistant professor of art.

"Gulfs" is open to the public, as is Speed's artist's talk on Jan. 23.
