Visual Art: Andrea Vail, CPCC Visual Arts instructor and Interdisciplinary Artist

Not only is CPCC one of the Carolinas largest community colleges, but the diversity that encompasses each of the six campuses is unmistakable. “Bridging,” Vail’s “collaborative, multi-campus textile work,” serves as an illustration of the community college’s varying demographics. Some of Vail’s other projects include “Signaling Hello,” an initiative that aims to communicate sincere encounters with pedestrians; and “DancePartyPotty,” an installation at the McColl Center in response to the 2017 “HB2” law. Vail received her MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University.

And we can’t forget the remarkable 2019 Annual Juried Student Art Show! Juried by professional artist and Northwest School Of The Arts, Byran Wilson. On view through June 3rd in Ross Gallery, Overcash Building, Central Campus!

JOIN US FOR THE SHARED OPENING WITH ANDREA VAIL AND OUR CPCC VISUAL ARTS STUDENTS APRIL 11 AT 7:00 P.M. IN OVERCASH LOBBY.
