Here’s Something Special from Carolyn Jacobs

These unique and creative artworks by Carolyn Jacobs are on display right now in the Pease Art Gallery. At first glance, you may think it is just another abstract painting, but it is much more than that. Ms. Jacobs is inspired by the effects mankind can have on nature. These pieces are taken from google earth images of a strip mines in Kentucky, where Ms. Jacobs grew up. All of the black seen here is made from coal collected at the strip mine. Next, the coal is ground up and mixed with cold wax creating a stunning textural effect that makes these works of art a must see in person. Stop by Pease to check them out!

Al Torres’ Image Shifting Magic

What is going on in this painting from design instructor Al Torres? Something really cool that is best seen in person! Torres creates his paintings using lenticular design. That means that as the painting is viewed from different perspectives, the image changes! This piece titled “Self Portrait/ Hope” will be on view as part of Past & Present, an exhibition of current Art faculty and their former students/CPCC alumni. Past & Present will remain on view in Pease Gallery on Central Campus through October 3.  Come by and see the magic for yourself! This is something you have got to see in person!

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.
