The Carnegie’s 2016-17 Gallery Season continues with The Nothing That Is: A Drawing Show in Five Parts running March 10 through April 15, 2017. The exhibition will kick off with an opening reception on Friday, March 10 featuring a gallery talk led by Carnegie Exhibitions Director Matt Distel and curator Bill Thelen.

THE NOTHING THAT IS

 The Nothing That Is presents an exhibition in five parts about drawing, curated in collaboration with Bill Thelen, an artist, curator and educator based in Raleigh, NC. His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and he operates the influential and ambitious Lump Gallery in Raleigh.

The exhibition, featuring works by more than 90 artists, will combine artists of national and international stature alongside works by artists based in this region. The various sections of the exhibition will explore the practice of drawing from the very traditional to conceptual practices to community-based activity. A previous iteration of this exhibition was presented at CAM-Raleigh.

Panama City, FL

The Visual & Performing Arts Division of Gulf Coast State College presents Menagerie, a group exhibition featuring work by Adam Doyle, Katherine Gallagher, Amy Guidry, Laurie Hogin, Gabriel Lovejoy, Chris Musina, and Kevin Taylor.

A menagerie was a collection of exotic animals from around the world that were kept for display and entertainment, and were especially popular in European courts of seventeenth and eighteenth century. In art, animals have long been used as a vehicle to explore our relationship to each other, our environment, and ourselves. The artists in the exhibit fully embrace this tradition and use animal imagery to address a wide range of topics from environmental concerns, to societal constructs, to self-examination, to pure celebration of nature. Just like the menageries of the past this exhibit brings together a collection of fantastic beasts, however this time they are more than just mere curiosities. The specimens here ask us to think, they ask us to feel, they ask us to take action.

 

The exhibit will run from February 3 to March 3, with an opening reception on the evening of February 3, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. The work will be on display in the Amelia Center Gallery (Room 112).

Gallery hours are Monday – Thursday, 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., and Friday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, please contact Pavel Amromin at pamromin@gulfcoast.edu or 850-872-3886.

Puffin Foundation Grant

 

I am the proud recipient of a Puffin Foundation Grant.

A bit about the grant:

The Puffin Foundation Ltd. has sought to open the doors of artistic expression by providing grants to artists and art organizations who are often excluded from mainstream opportunities due to their race, gender, or social philosophy.

Keep an eye out for the forthcoming project this grant is funding.
