Big Print Block Party!

Cape Fear Community College is pleased to host the opening exhibition of the “Big Block Print Party” at the Hanover Art Gallery and will hold an opening reception on Friday, June 22 from 6 – 9 p.m.

CFCC’s Humanities and Fine Arts Department Chairman Brandon Guthrie is excited about hosting the exhibit at the college’s new gallery and encourages visitors to stop in to view the unique pieces of art.

Brandon explained that the artists created the work by carving on a four by eight-foot piece of wood and then applying the imprint on organic fabric using a steamroller rather than a traditional press.

Many of the artists, some of which are students and faculty at CFCC, will be present at Friday’s reception to explain the process and exhibit their work.

The exhibit will be on display through July 22. Admission is free and open to the public.

CFCC’s Hanover Art Gallery is located at 200 Hanover St. in the first floor of the Hanover Parking Deck in downtown Wilmington. The gallery is open five days a week this summer on the following schedule: Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
