9/4 - 1/15 ART EXHIBITS: Narrative Influence
Opening Reception 5:30-7pm on September 4th. Narrative Influence showcases the work of UNCP faculty and students whose work explores personal or symbolic narrative. These prints and drawings utilize a variety of historical techniques as a vehicle for story-telling, including silverpoint, pen and ink, photolithography, and relief printing. Faculty work includes Brandon Sanderson's exploration of organic and mechanical form to Jules Floss' investigation of the role of occupation and labor in individuality. The wide range of student work addresses humorous social commentary, military life and identity, sociology and mythology, and religious allegory. The opening will include a on-site demonstration of the use of a 17th century-style printing press. For more information call 738-4339.

9/22 - 10/31 FABRICation
FABRICation celebrates the work of seven artists that incorporate a textile sensibility through elements of fabric and fabrication. Inspired by a rich array of historical textiles, these complex multi-part constructions are encoded by traditional handicraft to contrast our culture’s rampant media consumption with the redemptive nuance of slow work wrought by hand. Saturated with vibrant color, the luminous materiality activates the senses and counters passive visual skimming. Works range from delicate illusions to layered constructions to architectural interventions. Mixed media includes oil and acrylic paint, vintage clothing, aluminum screens, wool, silk, plastic, thread, vinyl, burlap, rug-hold, glass, recycled objects, and found fabrics. Whether painting, tapestry or construct, these works interweave sensory pleasure with repetitive process to invoke introspection and reflection. Featured artists include Erin Castellan, Kristy Deetz, Virginia Derryberry, Reni Gower, Rachel Hayes, Susan Iverson and Natalie Smith. Reception: Monday, October 6, 3:00-4:30pm. Gallery Talk by Virginia Derryberry: Monday, October 6, 3:30pm. Free and open to the public. Gallery hours are M-Th 9-5, F 9-3, and Wed. evenings 5-8. Closed when classes are not in session. For more information call Dr. Nancy R. Palm 775.4264 or Dr. Richard Gay 775.4045.

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.
