"There is a continuous public dialogue taking place about the role the USA plays throughout the world. This new body of work that I am making is part of that conversation. The work is not intended to be political yet the very outline of the shape we know as the USA takes on a stance that resonates beyond the visual. It resonates in the arena of power, history, geography, economics and politics to name but a few. My intention is to further explore this rich and fertile territory that I have come to know as ‘home’."  - Randy Shull

On Friday, November 16 from 6 to 9 PM, the public is invited to join us as we celebrate our newest exhibition, Channeling the USA, featuring works by Randy Shull. Channeling the USA was curated by Janet Koplos, former editor of Art in America. At 7 PM the night of the reception, the Center will present a special conversation with the curator and artist. Admission and parking are free. Cash bar (with $1 draft beer from a NoDa Brewing and a Sake Bar in Tomoo Kitamura's studio). All ages welcome.  

In addition, the 2nd & 3rd floor galleries will present new work from 11-Month Affiliate Artists, JoAnn Sieburg-Baker and Tomoo Kitamura. This reception also marks the end of a term for our Fall Artists-in-Residence including Michael Haag, John W. Love Jr., Pamela Z, Ibrahim Miranda, and Susannah Mira. 

Channeling the USA and the 11-Month Affiliate Artist Exhibition run November 16, 2012 to January 12, 2013.
