William (Bill) Dunlap has distinguished himself as an artist, arts commentator and educator, during a career that has spanned more than three decades. Dunlap has an M.F.A. from the University of Mississippi, and taught at Appalachian State University in North Carolina (1970-79) and Memphis State University (1979-80). He currently maintains studios in McLean, Virginia; Mathiston, Mississippi and Coral Gables, Florida. His paintings, sculpture, and constructions are included in prestigious collections, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Corcoran Gallery of Art.

Dunlap will be signing his recent bestseller, Short Mean Fiction. “Like tales from the Old Testament, these stories are mean, rampant with sex, violence, and death.” William Dunlap’s debut collection of stories, words, and pictures makes a strong case for Hypothetical Realism in his art. The artist will speak about his role to “create something out of nothing” and read excerpts from his book.
