We have two exhibits closing soon! Be sure to stop by and visit the Art Galleries. As of August 1, both of our current shows will be taken down to make way for the next exhibition. We have greatly enjoyed hosting Orr Ambrose’s The Invisible Landscape as well as our Archival Exhibit Our Stories.
Think back to last spring 2018. What did we have going on in the Ross Gallery? This was Felicia Van Bork’s exhibition color + color = space, courtesy of the Jerald Melberg Gallery. During Sensoria 2018, Ms Van Bork organized a group mural project at Levine Campus. Students came from all campuses to participate and work on a small piece of the mural that took up an entire wall. Originally, the mural was painted on a wall that was marked for demolition, but with a little luck and a little more organization we were able to save the entire mural! It is still on display at the Levine Campus in Matthews. Be sure to stop by and see it!
(Above is shown the mural in its planning stages and also in its finished form)
One of our more engaging exhibits we have right now in the Overcash Gallery is our scrapbook. The Dental Hygiene Class of 2004 put together scrapbook for the graduation. Additionally, we have a Phi-Lamba scrapbook on display with tons of fun pop culture references from the early 2000s. Gallery visitors have enjoyed pulling on the white gloves and going through these delightful books. Some of our guests, who were around CP during this time, have even seen a few faces they recognized!
