GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College presents the art exhibit “Phototropes in Sanguine Sun,” by Anna Payne Rogers, Jan. 14-Feb. 14 in the Anne Rudd Galyon Gallery in Cowan Humanities Building on campus.

The exhibit opens with a reception, 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16. Regular gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays (with gallery lighting) and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays (lit by daylight only). Free parking is available adjacent to the Cowan Building in the lot behind the college’s Admissions Welcome Center at West Market Street and College Place.

Rogers’s exhibit features large, mixed-media abstractions.

“The paintings balance intertwining geometric figures. The colors are vibrant and crisply laid out. The works simultaneously exude a rigor and strength, and also an optimism shot through with warmth and an inviting freshness,” says Jim Langer, professor and chair of the Department of Art and director of galleries at the college.

“On occasion, remnants and snippets of human forms are seen or evoked. Most rely on the sheer exuberance of the artist stretching herself physically and mentally to encompass not just the space of the canvas, but to radiate out into the viewer’s shared presence.”

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 this exhibit or Greensboro College’s art program, contact department chair 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.
