UNC Asheville in Asheville, NC, Offers Works by Patricia Bellan-Gillen

UNC Asheville is presenting, Stealing Stories, an exhibition of new large-scale drawings by Patricia Bellan-Gillen, on view in the S. Tucker Cooke Gallery through Mar. 22, 2011.

Bellan-Gillen’s work often incorporates animal figures, and combines imagery generated through study and research with an approach that is felt, intuitive, and enigmatic.

Bellan-Gillen is the Dorothy L. Stubnitz Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where she received the Ryan Award for excellence in teaching. Her paintings, prints and drawings have been exhibited in more than 35 solo shows across the US. Her work has been included in group shows in museums and galleries, including the Hudson River Museum and the Chelsea Museum of Art in New York, the Tacoma Museum of Art in Washington, and the Frans Masereel Centre in Belgium.

The gallery has produced a 40-page catalogue documenting the exhibition, which will be available for purchase at the gallery.
