The exhibition is a project in partnership with the North Carolina Collection Photographic Archives in Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

North Carolina photographer Hugh Morton (1921-2006) created an estimated quarter-million negatives and transparencies during his lifetime. He learned his craft during summers at a camp near Grandfather Mountain and his work has been published in countless publications.

On view in the Mayer Gallery, located in the West Wing of the Turchin Center is Orna Bentor: Landscapes Within, on view through Jan. 25, 2014.

High Country artist, Orna Bentor, showcases paintings that reflect the many phases of her past, present and life experiences - from her childhood in Israel to overcoming physical disabilities.

On view in the Main Gallery, located in the East Wing of the Turchin Center is Men Working: The Contemporary Collection of Allen Thomas, Jr. In Memory of Robert S. Grady, on view through Feb. 8, 2014.

The collection of Allen Thomas, Jr. features artists working in a variety of two-and three-dimensional media from all around the world.

On view in the Community Gallery, located in the East Wing of the Turchin Center is Susan Webb Tregay: Contemporary Art for Adult Children, on view through Jan. 11, 2014.

A native of nearby Hendersonville, NC, Susan Webb Tregay’s fun and free spirit in her works reflect her main goal - to have fun with her art. Focusing on painting experiences, she has captured what it is like to be an adult child.

On view in the Mezzanine Gallery, located in the East Wing of the Turchin Center is Beyond the Image: The Paintings of Warren Dennis, on view through Oct. 19, 2013.

Former Appalachian State University art professor, Warren Dennis focuses on the human image in his work. With the figures in his paintings reflected in a distorted manner, Dennis works toward a dramatic presence in each of his pieces.

The Turchin Center for the Visual Arts presents exhibition, education and collection programs that support Appalachian State University’s role as a key regional educational, cultural and economic resource.
