Coming Soon: A visit from local artists and editor Gavin Edwards of The Beautiful Book of Exquisite Corpses

Gavin Edwards, editor of The Beautiful Book of Exquisite Corpses will be visiting Ross Gallery on Central Campus on Wednesday October 31, 2018 from 11:00am to 1:00pm. Accompanying Edwards will be local artists and book contributors Dustin Harbin and Holly Keogh. Be sure to stop by as the first 200 visitors will receive a FREE copy of the book!

The game of Exquisite Corpse is simple: two or more people create an unpredictable artwork by folding the paper to hide each contribution, leaving only small connective lines for clues. The unfolded page reveals a finished collaboration—sometimes wacky, sometimes twisted, and always unique. With this book, you can create your own Exquisite Corpses, with friends or on your own, because the pages are already packed with potential collaborators.– Penguin Random House

Matt Horick’s latest exhibition at CPCC, revert and continue, will expand on the artist’s idea of sculptural editions, featuring a number of distinct works for both the wall and floor. The exhibition will include many of Horick’s signature white abstract forms, situated alongside a new set of sculptures created from found and recycled sheet metal, largely retaining the raw appearance of their original material. Begun while in residence at the McColl Center for Arts + Innovation in Uptown Charlotte, this exhibition serves as a culmination of the artist’s work over the past years.
