As part of the celebrations for Archives Month 2015, Kate Hall ’16 and Lee Summerell ’16 have curated a show from the Davidson College Art Galleries collection. Focusing on the North Carolina Archives Month 2015 theme of “Celebrating Archives: North Carolina Arts, Crafts, and Music Traditions,” Hall and Summerell selected six works, focusing (according to the panel text they wrote) “primarily on artists who lived, worked, or studied in North Carolina. North Carolina has a rich history of artistic excellence. In the 1930s through the 1950s, the Black Mountain College hosted many prominent figures in the development of Modern Art. Josef Albers served on the college’s faculty where he taught Robert Rauschenberg and helped shape his later artistic theory.” In addition to pieces by Albers and Rauschenberg, the show includes works by long-time art faculty member Herb Jackson (Class of 1967), William Ferris (Class of 1964), and two Charlotte-area artists: Ce Scott and Juan Logan.
The Archives Month Art Show will be hanging in the Spencer Lobby of Chambers Building until the end of October.
