"His Eye Is on the Sparrow" Exhibit Opens Feb. 5
February 2, 2017

“His Eye Is On The Sparrow: A Tribute to the Art and life of Greg Kyle” will open on Sunday, Feb. 5, in the Edith Davis Gallery at the Rose Center in Morristown.
Greg served as the official Walters State photographer for 27 years, until his death in 2015. He is also well known for his work with the “Citizen Tribune.”
“With Greg’s talent, Walters State was able to create successful, award-winning marketing materials and advertising campaigns,” said J.B. Pectol, vice president for communications and marketing at the college and Greg’s supervisor.
“He did some of his best work during commencement and nursing pinning ceremonies. He genuinely enjoyed celebrating the milestone with our graduates.”
Deciding which photos to submit for the exhibit, with thousands of excellent shots to choose from, is one of the most difficult tasks undertaken this year by Pectol’s department. His work won awards form the Tennessee Press Association and the Tennessee College Press Association.
This exhibit will open at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 5. A special ceremony celebrating Greg’s legacy is set to begin at 3 p.m. The ceremony will include music and light refreshments. 
This exhibit is a collaboration between the Africa to Appalachia Foundation for Education and the Arts and Morristown’s Rose Center. Sponsors include Walters State and the Citizen Tribune.
Greg was an alumnus of Walters State Community College. Following his death, his family established the Gregory “Greg” Manuel Kyle Jr. Scholarship for the Arts as a testament to his talents. The scholarship is awarded to a deserving student majoring the arts. The scholarship endowment remains open for donations.
