Campus Art Walk

Thursday, August 24

Arts leaders at UNCW are proud to announce and host the second Campus Art Walk on Thursday, Aug. 24. Modeled after Wilmington’s successful “Fourth Friday” gallery walks, the Campus Art Walk is a showcase celebration of the ongoing, diverse cultural activities at UNCW.

From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., participants can take a self-guided tour of five art spaces, including the CAB Gallery and UNCW Sculpture Yard at the Cultural Arts Building; the Sherman Hayes Gallery in Randall Library; and the Boseman Art Gallery and Upperman African American Cultural Center (both located in the Fisher University Union). Maps to each gallery will be available at all of the locations. 

The CAB Gallery will feature the exhibit “Synergy: Paintings and Drawings by Sergej Andreevski and Gligor Cermerski.” Andreevski and Cermerski played key roles in the evolution of the No Boundaries International Art Colony founded in 1998 by artists Gayle Tustin, Dick Roberts and Pam Toll. The exhibition celebrates the Art Colony’s impassioned relationship with key artists of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

The UNCW Sculpture Yard is a rotating sculpture garden featuring work by intermediate and advanced sculpture students. New sculptures are installed every year. The yard is also home to two permanent works by Carl Billingsley.

The Sherman Hayes Gallery’s new exhibit, “Beyond the Fold,” was curated by two public history graduate students who will be on hand to show the exhibit and answer questions. “Beyond the Fold” highlights a variety of visually stunning pamphlets from UNCW’s Special Collections and University Archives.

The Boseman Art Gallery will exhibit “Sculptural Evolution: Giving Form to Concept,” a collection of three-dimensional forms by UNCW sculpture students. The work is created with a variety of material ranging from steel to vinyl records.

The Upperman African American Cultural Center presents the photographic talent of UNCW content and communications specialist Venita Jenkins. “My Lord, What a Morning,” features a vibrant array of sunrise stills taken along the coastline and waterways of New Hanover County. The exhibit serves as the introduction to the center’s theme for the year, “A People by the Sea.” 

The event is free and open to all. Members of the general public are welcome.
