Horizon Lines Photographs by Peter Wilkie

–in the Nicholson Gallery




What began as a protest against the destruction of a natural landscape becomes in these photographs a far more nuanced exploration of the spiritual and emotional reality of emptiness itself. The horizon line, seen or unseen, holds everything together.



Opening Reception: Friday, April 10th, 6-8pm in the Nicholson Gallery and will be held in conjunction with the 2nd Friday ArtWalk. The exhibit will be on display April 1st-30th.





May’s Emerging Artist: Brushes With Life–in The ArtsCenter’s Corridor

EAS_Brushes with Life

“We are proud to be showcasing collective works from our students in the healing arts class.  This class has been an exploration of self-expression from the stand point of mindfulness.  As a group we focus on the process of our artwork while seeking a therapeutic benefit.  This class is hosted by Brushes With Life: Arts Program through the Center of Excellence in Community Mental Health at UNC.  Our artwork is a reflection of our efforts to let go of preconceived notions of what art is supposed to be, and our hopes to discover how healing the creative process is.”


Opening Reception: Friday, May 8th, 6-8pm in the Nicholson Gallery and will be held in conjunction with the 2nd Friday ArtWalk. The exhibit will be on display May 1st-31st.
