Directors and curators from local college and university galleries speak to the benefits of student and faculty exhibits.
“We try to bring a lot of our alumni back so that our current students can see what they’ve been doing since they left school,” says Carrie Tomberlin, UNCA photography instructor.
Childrens book publisher Candlewick Press paired local artist Nevins with writer Amy Ehrlich and together they created With a Mighty Hand: The Story in the Torah. Nevins’ part of that publication was a series of 40 narrative paintings depicting various characters and scenes from the first five books of the Bible. Those works will be shown for the first time, alongside some of Nevins’ related paintings and large-scale abstracts, at UNC Asheville’s S. Tucker Cooke Gallery. An opening reception takes place Thursday, Sept. 24.
