GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Greensboro College Department of Art presents James Brooks III’s exhibition, “Brooks Isn’t Done: In Retrospect While Contemporaneous,” Oct. 7-Nov. 14 in the Anne Rudd Galyon Gallery in the Cowan Humanities Building on campus.

Regular gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays. A closing reception will be held 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14. Admission is free, and the public is invited.

Brooks, with both academic and self-taught skills, makes large, extremely active, and brightly-colored images of pop icons as well as many engaged with religiously-tinged settings and iconography. He also has new work with a social commentary edge, which he is excited to share.

His social-political work includes sneak appearances of famous figures, joined across time. He writes and recites his own performance-art poetry to accompany the reception, assisted by a live string instrumentalist.

Greensboro College’s Department of Art offers the B.A. or B.S. in Art and the B.A. in Art Education, as well as the B.F.A. in painting or sculpture.

The program, with individual attention to students, combines classic art principles with the liberal-arts foundations of diverse branches of inquiry, including both science and the humanities, so that students can incorporate as much of the world as possible into their own art-making.

For more information about Greensboro College’s art program, contact department chair Jim Langer at 336-272-7102, ext. 5361, or email langerj@greensboro.edu.

Greensboro College provides a liberal arts education grounded in the traditions of the United Methodist Church and fosters the intellectual, social, and, spiritual development of all students while supporting their individual needs.

Founded in 1838 and located in downtown Greensboro, the college enrolls about 1,000 students from 29 states and territories, the District of Columbia, and seven foreign countries in its undergraduate liberal-arts program and six master’s degree programs. In addition to rigorous academics and a well-supported Honors program, the school features a 17-sport NCAA Division III athletic program and dozens of service and recreational opportunities.
