Undone
Undone: The Selected Works of Julia May and Connor Shumaker
march 19-April 10
Reception: Thursday, march 19, 5:30-7pm in the Boseman Gallery

Tapping into a historical language of abstract expressionism by using color as a symbol and coming together with fiber artistry to explore the creation of self, this exhibit investigates personal journeys through two very different mediums. The two artists work outside the gendered norms that history had placed upon the two mediums; May focuses on large scale abstract expressionist painting, stereotypically a male dominated field, while Shumaker practices fiber work, historically a female-driven art.

An Observant Eye
An Observant Eye: Images of Nature in Southeastern North Carolina
april 16-Aug. 17
Reception: Thursday, April 16, 5:30-7pm in the Boseman Gallery

Taking inspiration from a line in Henry David Thoreau’s journal, ecologist and conservation educator Andy Wood uses photography to bring awareness to the beauty and fragility of North Carolina’s ecosystem. “My subjects are not big, glamorous things; they are the little beings that cohabitate with us, some rare, some common, but most seldom seen by the casual observer.”
