Artists as Art: Photographic Portraits
Mar 9 through Apr 27, 2019



Robert Frank photographs Beat poet Allen Ginsberg hugging a tree, Imogen Cunningham poses Alfred Stieglitz standing in front of a flower painting by Georgia O’Keeffe, and Barbara Morgan captures modern dancer Martha Graham as she stretches her body into a dramatic form; these images convey more than a mere likeness of the artists portrayed. Instead they highlight the collaboration between photographer and subject when both are artists seeking to convey a unique persona.

Artists as Art: Photographic Portraits is on loan from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Nightfall: Prints of the Dark Hours
Mar 9 through Apr 27, 2019



This exhibition explores nocturnes–images that evoke the night. Luminous apparitions of the divine, dazzling fireworks, lamplit urban streets, and twilight’s soft glow over the natural landscape are all subjects that have intrigued and challenged printmakers across the centuries.

Nightfall: Prints of the Dark Hours is on loan from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Ed Dolinger
Aug 3 through Oct 5, 2019



In his works, Ed Dolinger seeks solutions to unsolvable problems: Purging logic from useful and practical images that originally relayed information as rational solutions or instructions. His "poetic puzzles" are a reaction to contemporary life that seems unnecessarily complicated, that thrives on complexity for the sake of complexity.

Dolinger has been an active member of the Virginia art community for years. He is a former recipient of a painting fellowship from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and has been shown, collected and involved in public arts projects throughout the country.

Davis Choun
Mar 28 through May 9, 2020

Davis Choun is a process-oriented artist/designer whose work is born out of an attraction to benign or discarded materials and a process of manipulations. His work relies on improvisation and continuity. As the work changes over time, the statements at the beginning of this paragraph may fall away from the truth.

Choun is a graduate of the NC State College of Design. He works out of Artspace in Raleigh, North Carolina.
