Barbara Anne Thomas- Visual History of Space

Barbara Anne Thomas: Ann Flack Boseman Scholarship Show 

NOV. 16-DEC. 22
RECEPTION: THURSDAY, NOV. 16, 6:30-8PM IN THE BOSEMAN GALLERY

A UNCW student is selected annually by the faculty of the Department of Art and Art History for this merit-based honor. This is the only solo student exhibition hosted annually at the Boseman Gallery. This exhibit will feature the work of the Ann Flack Boseman Art Exhibition Award recipient, Barbara Anne Thomas. Barbara Anne is an art and psychology student graduating in December 2017. While her focus is painting, she also incorporates drawing and sewing into her mixed-media show, "Visual History of a Space."

When speaking about her show, Barbara Anne says, "Architecture provides the framework in which human interaction takes place. I explore how structural elements, like doors, windows, walls, and buildings, configure social environments. My series references the transience that occurs within a space, using elements of time, movement, and memory. As I explore a dialogue between structure and abstraction, I use a variety of formal elements to create a multi-sensory experience."

Spring 2018

Grove, Roots and Heartwood

Grove, Roots and Heartwood

JAN. 11-FEB. 2 
RECEPTION: THURSDAY, JAN. 11, 6:30-8PM IN THE BOSEMAN GALLERY

The role of the photographic image has a rich history for cataloging memories, often containing images that are unique to one individual’s experience. Artists Ginger Owen, Associate Professor of Photography and Intermedia at Western Michigan University, and Vicki VanAmeyden, artist and art educator from Michigan, want to emphasize how the photograph helps us to find our place in a larger historical picture, appropriating imagery from their respective family albums and framing their ideas around the experience generated from remembering their past. 

Framed around nostalgia and memory, these mixed-media pieces are large-scale experiential installations that engage in viewers’ unique memories and experiences. Using the photomechanical processes including cyanotype and Xerox transfer, they address the ties that bind people and cultures: memory, history, culture, humanity and ancestry. Come explore collective memories through vernacular photography and contemplate the act of pursuing one’s history as a universal human understanding.

Madison Bowen, It's A Blue World After All

Liberation of the Individual  

APRIL 5 -AUG. 10 
RECEPTION: THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 6:30-8PM IN THE BOSEMAN GALLERY

An exhibit by UNCW Alum Hailey Black, this show takes an introspective tone when dealing with conflicting emotions and thoughts throughout the different mediums, which include steel, fabric, paper, and black ink on watercolor. Though the paintings, sculptures, fabric collage, and installation featured are abstract, the pieces will be part of a larger and more private narrative of a person and their encountered emotions manifesting themselves physically in art. “I want the viewer to be able to associate the experience, and ultimately the art, with themselves.”

Hailey Black is a Wilmington-based artist, originally from Henderson, NC, working in two and three-dimensional mediums--such as watercolor, steel, paper, and fabric installation. She earned her BA in both Studio Art and Art History from the University of North Carolina Wilmington in 2017. Hailey shows her work locally and is currently the gallery assistant at the Bryand Gallery in historic downtown Wilmington.
