Exhibition: Sanford Biggers, Falk Visiting Artist

December 19

Exhibition opens December 16, 2017 and continues through April 8, 2018. Multimedia artist Sanford Biggers creates artworks that intentionally complicate our understandings of history, culture, and identity. His densely layered paintings on antique southern quilts combine imagery from such disparate sources as Buddhism, graffiti, and harmonics. Linked by themes of navigation, these motifs simultaneously recall stories of quilts being used as markers on the Underground Railroad and star charts employed by astronomers. At once visually beautiful and conceptually rich, they…

Exhibition: Louise Fishman: A Retrospective

December 19

Exhibition opens today and continues through December 22, 2017. The Weatherspoon Art Museum is the only southern venue for the traveling exhibition, "Louise Fishman: A Retrospective."

Exhibition: For All Time

December 19

The artworks included in this exhibition express a variety of ways artists have explored this multifarious concept, be it metaphorically, ironically, sequentially, or kinetically. http://weatherspoon.uncg.edu 336-334-5770 Free and open to the public
