Falk Visiting Artist talk and reception at GPS

On Thursday, March 30, at 5 p.m., Greensboro Project Space (GPS) will host a talk by exhibiting artist Stacey Davidson, who is a resident through the Falk Visiting Artist Series, a collaboration between the UNCG School of Art and the Weatherspoon Art Museum that first began in 1982.

As a Falk Visiting Artist, Davidson interacts with UNCG students and members of the community through discussion about practice and creative process, so that they may learn from a distinguished practicing artist.

Davidson is a portrait artist who reveals the personality of her subjects through painting, sculpture, photography and animation. Her sculpted dolls are widely known and demonstrate both cultural and personal character; they are on display in the GPS gallery through Davidson’s exhibition “slow work – lies, mistakes, revisions and tenderness.” Additionally, Davidson has directed a portrait project with students using Greensboro residents as subjects, and those portraits are also currently exhibited at GPS.

Davidson’s lecture is free and open to the public and will be followed by a closing reception. Greensboro Project Space is located at 219 W. Lewis St. in downtown Greensboro.
