Greensboro College Starts New Academic Year with Two Art Exhibits

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College’s art galleries are getting 2018-2019 off to a running start with two exhibits up this month.

Currently on exhibit is “Classical Approaches.” It features paintings and drawings from Cassandra Berry, a junior art major at Greensboro College; a past group collaboration from students of former GC art professor Ray Warren for a project on Cézanne’s portraits; a pair of watercolor landscapes by Tania Kirs ’99, and works in acrylic and oil by Art Department chair Jim Langer showing portraiture, landscape and still life.

That exhibit is up through Friday, Aug. 10.

Running from Wednesday, Aug. 15 through Sept. 15, “Two New Views” will feature video and still digital work from Jesse Hoyle and former GC adjunct Matthew Hayes.

The two work both separately and together, as in Hoyle’s video “This Is Not My Story,” which Hayes produced. Hayes says of the video, “I have to warn you that this is a little controversial as it deals with a falling out I had with another artist and my roommate’s family’s racism and homophobia that has buried much of their past. There’s a lot to unpack with it.”

The exhibits are in the Anne Rudd Galyon and Irene Cullis galleries in Cowan Humanities Building on campus. Admission is free; regular gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays.

Greensboro College’s Department of Art offers the B.A. or B.S. in Art and the B.A. in Art Education.

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 an 18-sport NCAA Division III athletic program and dozens of service and recreational opportunities.
