Upcoming Art Galleries Events

Revery and Continue SculptureArtist Matt Horick’s “revert and continue” exhibit comes to CPCC’s Pease Gallery Jan. 11

WHAT: Central Piedmont Community College’s (CPCC) is pleased to announce Matt Horick’s latest exhibition, “revert and continue,” will be on display in Pease Gallery beginning Jan. 11.

The exhibition expands on Horick’s idea of sculptural editions and features a number of distinct works for both the wall and floor. It 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.

Horick began working on the exhibition while in residence at the McColl Center for Arts + Innovation in uptown Charlotte. As a result, it serves as a culmination of his work over the past several years. His work has also been added to CPCC’s permanent art collection and is featured as part of Learning Resource Center’s sustainable Greenroof.
