Submerge
Jan. 14-Feb. 12
Reception: thursday, jan. 14, 5:30-7pm in the boseman gallery

Art is a way of life for painter Casey Scharling, an artist and adjunct instructor in the Art and Art History department at UNCW. The daughter to a portrait painter, wife of a Wilmington artist, and mother to two budding artists, she hails from a deeply creative family.  Her work explores the struggle and beauty that can be found in the repetition, rhythm, and emotion of daily life.  Leveraging personal subjects, experiences, and feelings, she examines how the identities of individuals are shaped by the recurrence of paths, words, images, and interactions over time.

Casey has served as Adjunct Instructor in the Art & Art History Department at the University of North Carolina Wilmington since 2008.  In addition to instructing courses in painting and design, she has also led initiatives in mural painting and online courses.  She earned her Bachelor's and Master of Fine Arts Degrees from East Carolina University and has been recognized by numerous organizations, including the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation and Arts Council of Wilmington.  Casey's work is housed in private collections throughout the United States.

Artificial Light
April 7 -Aug. 5
Reception: Thursday, april 7, 5:30-7pm in the Boseman Gallery

Artificial light is a ubiquitous feature of modern life, and whether by coincidence or design, it informs, evokes, and manipulates the inhabitants of a space. Duncan Hill’s “Artificial Light” photographs explore the aesthetic and perceptual implications of lighting by considering why light is focused on certain aspects of a location while other surfaces are left to the dark of night.

Duncan Hill is a Washington, D.C. based photographer and filmmaker, originally from High Point, North Carolina. He earned his B.A. in Film Studies from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington (UNCW) in 2009 and his M.F.A. in Photographic and Electronic Media from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in 2014. Duncan currently teaches photography at Loyola University of Maryland.
