City Art Gallery in Greenville, NC, Offers Exhibit of Works Inspired by Dr. James Applewhite

City Art Gallery in Greenville, NC, is pleased to announce its second annual multi-media invitational show featuring a collection of art based on the poetry of North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame member Dr. James Applewhite, on view through Feb. 11, 2012.

The Applewhite show features paintings, ceramics and sculpture by more than a dozen artists, several of whom are ECU alumni and faculty. Participating artists were asked to contemplate three poems by Applewhite and then create a work inspired by the poem of their choosing.

An Eastern North Carolina native, Dr. Applewhite served as Professor of Creative Writing and American Literature at Duke University for more than thirty years. He has been recognized with many awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts Award, and the Jean Stein Award in Poetry from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. He is a member of both the Fellowship of Southern Writers and the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame.

The Applewhite show is presented in conjunction with the North Carolina Literary Review, an annual publication by East Carolina University and the North Carolina Literary & Historical Association.
