Some Exhibits That Are Still On View

Our policy at Carolina Arts is to present a press release about an exhibit only once and then go on, but many major exhibits are on view for months. This is our effort to remind you of some of them.

The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, NC, is presenting reGeneration 2: Tomorrow’s Photographers Today, curated by William A. Ewing and Nathalie Herschdorfer, on view through Sept. 15, 2013. The exhibition showcases the ingenuity of photographers at the outset of their careers, as they navigate in the fast-moving currents of the 21st century. It showcases young practitioners focusing on major themes as diverse as the urban environment, globalization, identity and memory, as well as their hybrid techniques, which allow them to obscure as never before the distinction between reality and fiction.

From the majestic grandeur of Niagara Falls to the sweeping vistas of Yosemite, the exhibition Masterpieces of American Landscape from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston offers viewers more than 60 works on loan from one of America’s most prestigious art museums, and all will be on exhibit in Greenville this summer. Previously on view in Japan, the exhibition at the Greenville County Museum of Art, is the show’s only Southern venue. The exhibition will remain on view through Sept. 15, 2013.

To honor the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, Wells Fargo joins with the Harvey B. Gantt Center to display The Kinsey Collection: Shared Treasures of Bernard and Shirley Kinsey -Where Art and History Intersect. This exhibition, on view through Oct. 12, 2013, contains a collection of art and artifacts examining 400 years of the African-American experience, including an early copy of the Emancipation Proclamation.

The Mint Museum Randolph in Charlotte, NC, is presenting New Eyes on America: The Genius of Richard Caton Woodville, featuring an exhibition with richly-painted depictions of daily life created during the transformative years prior to the American Civil War, on view through Nov. 3, 2013. The exhibition includes 15 of Woodville’s 16 known paintings, several of which have never been on view, as well as prints, illustrated books, and other related works of art to place his career in historical context. Woodville left behind no written archives; however, his work was highly acclaimed and widely disseminated through premium prints sent to thousands of subscribers to the American Art-Union, a national art membership organization.

The Reynolda House Museum of American Art in Winston-Salem, NC, is presenting Things Wondrous & Humble: American Still Life, on view in the Mary and Charlie Babcock Wing Gallery, through Dec. 8, 2013. Still life paintings make us think about the objects we love, and this new exhibition will invite visitors to look more closely at what those objects say about us. The exhibit will feature treasures from the Reynolda House collection accompanied by key loans from museums and private collections across the state.
