Raleigh Furniture Building in Raleigh, NC, Hosts Works by UNC-Chapel Hill Students

The exhibition, Stop, features new work by current MFA students at UNC-Chapel Hill, on view from Nov. 5-21, 2010, at the Raleigh Furniture Building, 119 East Hargett Street, in downtown Raleigh, NC.

The Department of Art at UNC, in conjunction with Empire Properties, is proud to present the first collective exhibition by the program to take place in Raleigh.

Through a variety of themes and media, the graduate students at Chapel Hill present earnest explorations in contemporary art practice. Simultaneously serious and funny, formal and political, this body of work reflects several current trends in art making.

The building, a 1914 furniture store, has served as inspiration for site-specific installations, paintings, and video. Currently undergoing restoration by Empire Properties, this historic structure is part of the cultural center of downtown and is located along the First Friday artwalk.

Artists include: Carolyn Butler, Lee Delegard, Travis Donovan, Ashley Florence, Cora Lim, Lydia Anne McCarthy, Jessye McDowell, Chris Musina, Hollin Norwood, Jason Osborne, Ray Padron, Neill Prewitt, Jonathan Sherrill, Seoun Som, and Tracy Spencer. The exhibition was organized by Tracy Spencer.
