Visions in Three Dimensions  

AUG. 23-SEPT. 14
RECEPTION: THURSDAY, AUG. 23, 6:30-8 PM IN THE BOSEMAN GALLERY

Steel, plaster, fabric, wood, rocks... all materials are sculpture materials. This work, created by students from all of UNCW's sculpture classes encompassing Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced concepts, explores a variety of material to create compelling sculptures. Each student’s vision is uniquely represented in three- dimensional form.

Coping Ugly

SEPT. 20-OCT. 12
RECEPTION: THURSDAY, SEPT. 20, 6:30-8PM IN THE BOSEMAN GALLERY

As the result of a profound loss, grief is a natural, inescapable part of living. America is still largely a grief-avoidant culture and death is still an uncomfortable topic. Grief and those grieving can be marginalized by our society, typically in a passive way by others’ reluctance for discomfort. Confronting the messiness of grief and the reality of death in a public space could encourage perspective shifts.  

As an artist who experienced the death of a loved one, Lewis has a personal understanding of grief that was unimaginable prior to her lose. Grief has become an integral part of her life, and in the way she creates art. Her grief has also served as a catalyst: to make human connections as part of the healing process, to create pieces that engage the public with uncomfortable topics and to give voice and visualization to her experience. In Coping Ugly, the artist will openly offer her own grief in visual form and, in doing so, provide to those viewers who have experienced loss, a reminder: you’re not alone.

RECEPTION: THURSDAY, OCT. 18, 6:30-8PM IN THE BOSEMAN GALLERY

An exhibit by UNCW Alum Nathan Ryan Verwey, this new art exhibition features both paintings and sculpture done in a gritty street style.

“The Kings and Queens

Have bought the house of American Dreams

Only to find

It’s not what it seems.”

–The Revolution Awaits

Nathan Ryan Verwey is an artist working out of Wilmington, NC, where he received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. His style is derived from a love of art history, especially the art of the renaissance period, as well as the street art movement. When making work, his goal is to capture the color, grit, and freedom found in street and graffiti art and bring it indoors.

Emma Dunn-Scholarship Show

Ann Flack Boseman Scholarship Show: Emma Dunn  

APRIL 11 -AUG. 9 
RECEPTION: THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 6:30-8PM IN THE BOSEMAN GALLERY

A UNCW student is selected annually by the faculty of the Department of Art and Art History for this merit-based honor. This is the only solo student exhibition hosted annually at the Boseman Gallery. This exhibit will feature the work of the Ann Flack Boseman Art Exhibition Award recipient, Emma Dunn. Emma is a Studio Art Major with a minor in digital arts graduating in May 2019. Her focus is in photography, which she showcases in her show, "Between the Pages."

When speaking about her show, Emma says, “Books hold power. Whether pulling you into a fantastical world, making you laugh out loud, educating, or telling someone’s life story, books play a large part in many people’s lives.  We rely on them to learn new things and to entertain us.  As both an avid reader and an artist, I not only enjoy getting lost in a new story, but I have also come to appreciate how a book is designed and assembled.  With this photography series, I want to bring attention to the elements of a book that often go overlooked, and the stories within.  In a time where so many books are becoming digital, I want to remind viewers of the beauty and excitement that can be found between the pages.”
