Central Piedmont Galleries Announces New Exhibits

Ross Gallery:
The CPCC Art Galleries are pleased to present “When Worlds Collide,” Jan. 10 through Art workMarch 14, 2019, in Ross Gallery, located in Overcash Center, on the college’s Central Campus. “When Worlds Collide” is a group exhibition, featuring three artists – photographers Nancy O. Albert and Meg Greene Malvasi, and painter Leigh B. Williams – whose works employ different approaches while addressing the idea of chemistry and art.

In this special exhibition, each artist explores the idea of chemistry as both a literal and symbolic process in her body of work. Nancy O. Albert’s digital photographic images focus on the interaction of nature’s processes with urban and industrial structures. Meg Greene Malvasi submerges Polaroid images into tubs of water and other chemicals, to create corroded-like images rearranging color, light and shapes. Leigh B. Williams’ works draw on the interaction of alcohol inks and acrylics with a variety of substrates. Active experimentation, resulting reactions, and creative controls all contribute to each artist’s process.

WHEN: January 10 – March 14, 2019, Monday – Thursday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Artist Panel Discussion: January 31, 5 – 6 p.m. in Tate Hall
Opening Reception: January 31, 6 – 8 p.m. in Ross Gallery
WHERE: Ross Art Gallery, Overcash Center, 1206 Elizabeth Ave., Charlotte, NC 28204

 

Merancas Campus:
Nancy Nieves: Painterly Moments Not Forgotten Nancy Nieves
January 10 – May 10, 2019
Merancas Campus: Criminal Justice Building
Nancy Nieves is an abstract landscape painter inspired by nature.

Nieves’ installation on Merancas campus celebrates a collection of her favorite works. Her compositions are bold and energetic with blended colors becoming atmospheric, creating movement and depth. Nature is pure and raw; it lives and overcomes us with love and harmony. It welcomes us with open branches and accepts us with its precious truth. Nieves’ wants her viewers to mentally interact with my paintings, escaping their world into mine, even if it’s just for a moment in time.
