If you haven’t had a chance to catch the “2019 UNCG School of Art Faculty Biennial” exhibition in the Weatherspoon Art Museum, there’s still time. Better yet, drop by the public reception for the exhibition on Thursday, August 22, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The exhibition features recent work by studio art faculty in UNCG’s School of Art. The faculty, as both professors and practicing artists, stimulate students to engage in their own aesthetic and intellectual pursuits. To do so, they must nourish their own creativity in addition to deepening their experiences and knowledge of the field. This exhibition is the result of the faculty’s continuous activity to create, experiment, learn, and communicate.

In addition to the public reception, the Weatherspoon will host a series of artist Gallery Talks, in which faculty will discuss their work currently on view in the show.

Wednesday, August 28, 12 to 12:45 p.m.
Christopher Thomas, Director of Foundations, Printmaking; and Leah Sobsey, Assistant Professor, Photography

Wednesday, September 4, 4 to 4:45 p.m.
Mariam Stephan, Associate Professor, Painting; Barbara Campbell Thomas, Associate Professor, Painting; and Dane Winkler, Assistant Professor, Sculpture

The exhibition is organized by Elaine D. Gustafson, Curator of Collections, and will be on display through September 15.

More information and  examples of work may be found on the WAM website.
