Date Event Location
1/12 - 2/20 Crossover and Composites: Hybrid Forms, Techniques and Media
The A.D. Gallery is pleased to present a juried exhibition of works that offer a contemporary look at progressive approaches to hybridization. Collectively, the fifteen artists in Crossover and Composites show a range of styles, materials and approaches that reflect the breadth and complexity of hybridization in contemporary art today. While some deconstruct the traditional roles of artist and curator, others focus on a unification of distinct media, while still others highlight the role of process to create a fusion of materials and techniques. Each piece is a strikingly unique testament to the innovation possible in contemporary art. Participating artists: Elaine Abbe, Mary Ann Anderson, Janet Braun-Reinitz, David Bligh, McArthur Freeman, Ronald Gonzalez, Bethany Haeseler, Elizabeth Johnson, Yaejin Lim, Jill Parisi, Nathan Pietrykowski, Alan Skees, Janet Suarez, Sayaka Suzuki and Margi Weir. Gallery Hours M-Th 9am-5pm/F: 9am-3pm/Wednesday Evenings 5pm-8pm. This exhibition is free and open to the public. For more information visit the website or call 910.775.4264.

1/15 - 2/26 ART EXHIBITS: Particulates of Light ~ Artwork of Jim Hurst
Opening Reception 5:30-7pm on January 15th. When an artist applies paint to canvas, they are in effect painting light. As light is made of particles of energy, spray paint is made of particulates of pigment. I came across this spray paint art form only a few years ago and explored its potential to create art, and I found spray paint can emulate light that leaves the piece with a pleasing glow, drawing the viewer like a moth toward the light placed on canvas. For more information call 738-4339.
