Davidson College Events

“Looking Forward / Looking Back” - Van Every/Smith Galleries, Katherine and Tom Belk Visual Arts Center – In honor of the community-wide celebration of Romare Bearden’s 100th birthday, the Van Every/Smith Galleries are proud to present the work of acclaimed sculptor Kendall Buster, selected artist for the major commission for Romare Beardon Park (Charlotte’s Third Ward), and emerging mixed-media artist Chris Watts.

August 26 – October 26Kendall Buster (Van Every Gallery) – This renowned artist is best known for her sculptures and public works that explore the idea of “biological architecture.” Inspired by microscopic organisms and cellular structures, Buster realizes these natural forms at colossal scales with high-tech fabrics and a matrix of modular armatures.

August 26 – October 26Chris Watts (Smith Gallery) – A native of North Carolina, this emerging artist grew up with his grandparents in the racially progressive city of San Diego. He later returned to Charlotte to study art, where he continues to live and work. Watts remixes imagery from vintage popular culture magazines with paint and collage to comment on the peculiar nature of his present-day social reality in the American south.

The Every/Smith Galleries are open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends from noon to 4 p.m. Programs are free and the public is welcome. For information, call 704.894.2519.
