Welcome back everyone to Spring Semester 2020! To kick off the new year and the start of the semester, we have two new exhibitions. In the Ross Gallery we are exhibiting I Am My Things and My Things Are Me by Allison Tierney. If you are interested in repurposed objects and found materials as art, then this is the show for you. She incorporates a lot of bright colors and patterns into her art as well.
In the Overcash Gallery we have Structure and Void by Richard Elaver. He is specializing in the 3D printing and laser cut objects for his art. The technological aspect of his work is fascinating plus the geometric shapes are very eye pleasing. There might even be a hands on element to his show. Stop by and find out more!
Both Galleries are located on the first floor of Overcash Center next to the Halton Theater.
The Art Gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Just a few more days left before the end of our latest exhibition “Blur: A Community Portrait Project” by Melissa Alexander. If you have not seen in it yet hurry on over as the show will close Thursday, December 12. It has been a pleasure walking all of our visitors through the show and answering their questions. We have really enjoyed sharing Blur with all of you, and a special thanks to those of you who took part in the Photography Sessions way back in August. You made this exhibition possible!
Only 12 days left in our Holiday Art Market! If you have not stopped by yet it is not too late. We still have many lovely items just waiting to be purchased. If you do not already know, our entire inventory was made by students, faculty and alumni. Everything is for sale and offered at affordable prices of $50 and under.
Here are a few more behind the scenes photos from Blur: A Community Portrait Project. We enjoyed letting Ms. Alexander turn our back room in the Ross Gallery into a photo studio.

Our community at Central Piedmont Community College is a diverse and wonderful thing. Melissa Alexander has worked hard these last few months capturing the different faces that can be found in our college. If you haven’t been by the Gallery recently stop by soon! It will be our pleasure to share with you the faces of our student body and tell you about Ms. Alexander’s process in creating this photographic exhibition. Additionally, we invited guest curator Jonell Logan, to curate the show for us.

If you passed by our Art Galleries recently and noticed two empty spaces, have no fear because those empty spaces have been filled! Today we opened with two new shows. In the Ross Gallery we are exhibiting Blur: A Community Portrait Project featuring Atlanta based photographer Melissa Alexander along with guest curator Jonell Logan. Ms Alexander’s artist lecture and reception will be held on Thursday, October 24 at 4:30 p.m. in Bryant Hall with a reception following at 5:30 p.m. in the Ross Gallery.
In the Overcash Gallery we have opened our annual Holiday Art Market. All items are for sale and nothing is priced higher than $50. All art is handmade by our student body and faculty and we have some beautiful items for sale! The opening reception for the Holiday Art Market is November 6 from 5-7 p.m. in the Art Galleries.
There’s still time to come and see the Shift exhibition! The last day of the show will be Thursday, October 3, so be sure to swing by today or tomorrow for one last look!
If you missed our first two artist lectures for Shift, do not worry because we have one more left! We will have the pleasure of listening to Amanda Foshag this Monday at 3 p.m. She will be speaking on Central Campus in Tate Hall in the Overcash Center. This talented lady will be sharing about her process as a fiber artist. If you have seen her work in the Art Galleries, then you already know that she employs intricate weaving and knotting techniques (and so much more) into her art. We hope to see you all there!
If you are one of the many people who have visited the Art Gallery and were curious about the artworks above, then you definitely do not want to miss Heather Lewis’ artist lecture! She will be speaking tomorrow September 26 at 10 a.m. in Tate Hall, which is located in Overcash Center. Her work touches on the themes of loss and grief, but inspires hope at the same time. We will look forward to seeing you there!
