Greensboro Project Space (GPS), the School of Art’s off-campus contemporary art center, has a new home.
Previously located on Lewis Street at the far south end of Elm Street, GPS is now located in the heart of downtown Greensboro at E. 111 February One Place and is open to the public with COVID-19 safety policies in place. The new GPS has four galleries, which allows for more concurrent exhibitions, and it will share an outdoor area with Cincy’s restaurant for concerts and performances.
As GPS opens in its new space, it may be fitting that the opening exhibition is “Home, revisited” by senior BFA Art (Painting) student Emily Moser. The works reflects Moser’s quarantine inspired examination of her home environment using drawing and painting. She is the recipient of the William Magnum Artistic Merit Award which she says made this show possible. “Home, revisited” is up until August 28th. Upcoming events include a virtual evening with Durham based documentary artist and UNCG Art alumnus Anthony Patterson and a Zoom Musical Salon featuring School of Music professors Andy Hudson and Annie Jeng.
GPS serves as a bridge between UNCG artists and the community, and it is a interdisciplinary space which hosts art exhibitions, as well as dance, music, and theatre performances -often in collaborative pieces that include more than one of the arts disciplines.
