NCCU exhibits works by NC connections

DURHAM – The works of black female artists with North Carolina connections will be featured this spring at the North Carolina Central Art Museum on campus. The exhibit, “Connected: African American Female Artists and North Carolina,” will open with an artist’s reception Feb 10 from 2 to 4 p.m.

This exhibition, curated by Christine M. Perry, Museum acting director and art production specialist, consists of over 30 works by 11African-American female artists connected to the state by birth or experience.

The exhibition is born of the realization that women, particularly black women, suffer many disparities, one being the underrepresentation of their work in the art world. The exhibition, which consists mostly of 2D art – oil or acrylic on canvas – also offers a sample of 3D art. It comprises works that span from the late 1940s to the present day. These works engage issues such as African-American history, culture, spirituality and simply a love for creating art.

Besides NCCU, these female artists’ works are exhibited at Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro and Ackland Art Museum Chapel Hill.

The NCCU Art Museum is located at 580 E. Lawson St., across from the Farrison-Newton Communications Building. The museum is equipped to accommodate physically-challenged visitors. Call 530-6211.
