Big Print Block Party!
Posted Thursday, June 28th, 2012 under Previous Shows.
Cape Fear Community College is pleased to host the opening exhibition of the â€œBig Block Print Partyâ€ at the Hanover Art Gallery and will hold an opening reception on Friday, June 22 from 6 â€“ 9 p.m.
CFCCâ€™s Humanities and Fine Arts Department Chairman Brandon Guthrie is excited about hosting the exhibit at the collegeâ€™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 Fridayâ€™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.
CFCCâ€™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. â€“ 5 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. â€“ 5:30 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. â€“ 12:00 p.m.
