Casey Scharling Exhibit at UNCW

Thursday, January 14th, 2016

Casey Scharling PaintingArtist Casey Scharling, who teaches at both CFCC and UNCW, has an exhibit opening today, January 14, on the UNCW campus. See below for details.


Jan. 14 -Feb. 12

Reception: Thursday, Jan. 14, 5:30-7pm in the Boseman Gallery


Art is a way of life for painter Casey Scharling, an artist and adjunct instructor in the Art and Art History department at UNCW. The daughter to a portrait painter, wife of a Wilmington artist, and mother to two budding artists, she hails from a deeply creative family. Her work explores the struggle and beauty that can be found in the repetition, rhythm, and emotion of daily life. Leveraging personal subjects, experiences, and feelings, she examines how the identities of individuals are shaped by the recurrence of paths, words, images, and interactions over time.

Casey earned her Bachelor’s and Master of Fine Arts Degrees from East Carolina University and has been recognized by numerous organizations, including the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation and Arts Council of Wilmington.  Casey’s work is housed in private collections throughout the United States.
