Two exhibitions are on view in Meredith College art galleries this month.
“Writings on the Wall: Language as Art,” featuring paintings, drawings and a video by Michael Klauke opens in the Frankie G. Weems Art Gallery, and continues through October 27. “Ahead of the Class: a Statewide Exhibition of N.C. Art Education Majors,” opens in the Rotunda Gallery of Johnson Hall, and continues through October 6.
“Writings on the Wall: Language as Art”
Michael Klauke’s interests in graphic design, conceptual art, traditional painting and drawing and the complexities of language converge in artwork in which words and images are both interrelated and interdependent. He uses thousands of tiny, handwritten words to form compositions inspired by politics, current events, literature, art history and religion. Curated by Adriana Burkins ’14. (Image shows detail from Klauke's "The Scarlet Letter.)
“Ahead of the Class: a Statewide Exhibition of NC Art Education Majors”
Artworks in a range of media demonstrate the talents of college students from across North Carolina who are preparing to be art teachers. The exhibition is being held in conjunction with the North Carolina Art Educators Association’s annual meeting. Curated by Kristen Piner ‘14
