Last Chance to See “Blur”

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!

12 More Days of…

 

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.

Don’t miss out…

 

Central Piedmont is fortunate to exhibit an eclectic selection of works (both 2D and 3D) from the private collection of Dr. Larry Brady at The Bill and Patty Gorelick Gallery Harris Campus. The exhibit includes many amazing glass pieces, ceramics, paintings, and more, with a huge variety of styles and artists. Mostly contemporary, both figurative and abstract works are represented, so there is something for everyone there.

Also exhibited are the exquisite paintings by artist Jean Cauthen. Full of vibrant colors and lovely explorations in abstraction, ranging from landscapes and cityscapes to a house of cards, these works are not to be missed.

This exceptional exhibit runs ‘til the end of Fall semester, so make sure you get out to the Gallery located in the Harris Conference Center and see it before it’s gone!

Congratulations Orr Ambrose…

More from Blur

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.

Atlanta-based photographer Melissa Alexander uses her camera to create a space of respite and self-rediscovery, Ross Art Gallery, August 27th, 2019

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.

Final Artist Lecture on Monday!

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!
