Photography From This Year’s Student Show

Today, we are highlighting our photography students from the Student Show. Central Piedmont Community College is proud to offer a diverse art curriculum both degree and non-degree seeking. Every year, photography students submit their work to the Annual Juried Student Art Show. Photographic contributions for this years show include digital photography, computer art as well as dark room photography.

2020 Annual Juried Student Art Show


Alice Ballard’s Studio

Here are a few behind the scenes shots of Alice Ballard’s beautiful studio. It is a space filled with natural light, illuminating finished projects and works in progress. Floor to ceiling windows minimize the divide between the indoors and outdoors contributing to a sense of peace and calmness that is a major part of Ballard’s work.

CP Art Galleries Presents

Central Piedmont Community College Art Galleries are proud to present two new exhibitions! Here are some sneak peaks into what is truly two amazing shows.

In the Ross Gallery we have the 2020 Annual Juried Student Art Show, a much anticipated exhibition we host every year featuring our talented students. Including all disciplines of art from photography to sculpture and everything in between there is always something to delight every visitor.

In the Overcash Gallery we are extremely excited to host an exhibition by Alice Ballard, Harmony With an Edge. Ballard uses her creative mind and talents to craft intricate earthenware sculptures. Each piece in its shape and color palette points us to nature helping us reconnect with the natural world around us. To see more from Alice Ballard, check out her website aliceballard.com 

Alice is also on instagram@aliceballard64


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, neither of these exhibitions is currently open to the public. As artists and creative types, we find art to be healing and therapeutic no matter what state of chaos the world is in. The show will go on. Please stay tuned for a virtual exhibition of each show! Also, be sure to check out our instagram and facebook sites for new pictures and updates.  

19 days left for “Structure and Void”

If you have not had the chance to see Richard Elaver’s exhibition Structure and Void stop by take a look today! We have enjoyed having Elaver’s work in the Overcash Gallery and sharing the artwork with our Gallery visitors. There are only a few weeks left in the show and they will fly by quickly!

Gallery Hours: Monday-Thursday 10:00-2:00 p.m.

A Few Weeks Left!

Be sure to stop by and see I Am My Things and My Things Are Me by Allison Tierney. This exhibition closes on March 12. Tierney’s exhibition focuses on maintaining a sustainable art practice. Rather than making art from new materials, she develops ways to reuse and recycle found objects, or art waste from her own studio. “Green Weave” (pictured above) currently hangs in the back room of the Ross Gallery. We would love to share with you the story behind this piece, as well as the rest of Tierney’s work.

Gallery Hours Monday – Thursday 10-2p.m.
