McQueeney art exhibit to open Nov. 6 for Homecoming

The Citadel’s Daniel Library will host the Nov. 6 opening of an art exhibit featuring the work of Thomas McQueeney, Citadel Class of 1974 and a member of the college’s Board of Visitors. A reception will be held at 2 p.m. in the Daniel Library courtyard.

"Sailing the Lake of Thun" is one of several works of art by Tommy McQueeney that will be on exhibit beginning Nov. 6 in The Citadel's Daneil Library. Proceeds from the sale of the art work will be donated to the Daniel Library Friends.

A local State Farm insurance agent and a 2009 recipient of the state’s Order of the Palmetto award, McQueeney is a lifetime artist whose works depict the Lowcountry and other world-wide destinations that he has visited. His work includes paintings of The Citadel, Ireland, and various nature and wildlife scenes

McQueeney has been a long-time supporter of community organizations and charities giving his time and energy to fundraising and volunteer work. He will donate proceeds from the sale of his paintings to The Citadel’s Daniel Library Friends.

The exhibit’s opening is timed to coincide with Homecoming 2009 at The Citadel. The McQueeney art exhibit is one of many events taking place during Homecoming Nov. 5-8. Events kick off with a bonfire and pep rally at 6 p.m. Nov. 5.

“Mr. McQueeney's gift to the library is tremendous and we are thankful for his generosity,” said Angie LeClercq, library director. “His lovely artwork, with its bright vistas, will give the Daniel Library an elegant flair for Homecoming weekend.”
