Callas is the guest of Meredith Assistant Professor of Art Warner Hyde. “Peter is an engaging and exciting artist, and I hope the campus community will take advantage of this one of a kind opportunity,” Hyde said.

Hyde and Callas have a joint show in Charlotte, N.C., at the Elder Gallery. The show, titled Respect opens on April 4 and runs through April 26.
