Weems Art Gallery

Meredith College’s art galleries present exhibitions with a rich diversity of visual, cultural, aesthetic and topical focuses to the college community as well as the broader Triangle area. Visually inspiring and intellectually engaging shows in the Frankie G. Weems Art Gallery and the Rotunda Art Gallery explore concepts such as language as art, women in prison, artists’ inspirations, use of sustainable resources, the creative process, and Afro-Atlantic costumes and masking. Photography, clay, textiles, painting, video, painting, drawing, mixed media, printmaking and installations are some of the expressive media and conceptual approaches that can be seen in both venues. Class, campus and public programs are offered to enrich exhibitions’ visual content.

Students also gain valuable professional experience through participating in the annual juried student art show, showing their work in a culminating senior art exhibition, curating shows, and working as a gallery assistant.

Image descriptions (from Left to Right): Left Image: detail of silhouetted human, in the bottom left corner, outlined with white thread atop a dark, blue background. Shear, white clouds lay overtop the head along with a bouquet of flowers outlined in light blue. Other bouquets, outlined in green, yellow, and red, are connected to hands that appear to offer the flowers. Middle Image: white ceramic bust of a woman from the shoulders upward. The head is not facing forward, but is rather tilted to the right with the gaze downwards. Dairy pages with red lettering are attached to the surface along with red barbed wiring. Left Image: One photograph from a series of three. A yellow flower appears in the center with five petals; various green foliage and flowers fan out reaching all four corners of the image. Additional yellow flowers of different sizes lead to white leaves on the edges of the photograph. The black background offsets the colorful nature.
