This exhibition of large-scale oil-on-canvas figure paintings by Virginia Derryberry explores contemporary aspects of alchemy, the forerunner of modern science. Many of the paintings are multi-panel pieces that use a Renaissance altarpiece format and question the nature of sequential narrative.

The intent is to suggest multiple interpretations rather than straightforward illustration of a specific narrative. At first glance, it seems that a "real" space is being defined, but in fact, the painted images are constructed from multiple viewpoints and lighting systems. Passages of volumetric rendering set next to more abstract, painterly areas result in the creation of a virtual, shifting world where nothing is quite what it seems.

Derryberry’s work is shown regularly in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States, and her paintings have been written about in an extensive list of publications including, New American Paintings magazine and Oxford American magazine. She has received such awards as Outstanding Artistic Achievement from the Southeastern College Art Association; Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome; Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award and the Feldman Professor Award for scholarship from UNC-Asheville; and the Annual Artist Fellowship from the Southeastern College Art Association.

Continuity (Color + Texture)

Sponsored by Toy and Joe Cobbe, Jo and Don Grayson, Nancy and Henry Moore, Barbara and Andy Parker, Barbara and Guy Stanley, Lynn and Noel Ward and Lynwood Artists

Davis Choun is a Raleigh-based artist working in sculpture and digital media. His work is born out of an attraction to discarded or everyday materials, most notably clothespins. After disassembling the clothespins, the wood pieces are then burned, dyed, and/or stained. Using those pieces, he composes a pattern to affix to a panel, allowing the clothespins to interact and layer on one another. His processes of manipulation heavily rely on improvisation and continuity.

Choun was born and raised in Rutherford County in western North Carolina and graduated from the School of Design at NC State University. His work has been supported by various galleries around North Carolina, including Artspace in downtown Raleigh, where he was awarded an Emerging Artist Residency.

Seasons and Colors of the Appalachian Trail

Sponsored by Toy and Joe Cobbe, Jo and Don Grayson, Nancy and Henry Moore, Barbara and Andy Parker, Barbara and Guy Stanley, Lynn and Noel Ward and Lynwood Artists

In celebration of the 85th anniversary of the completion of the Appalachian Trail, this exhibition is a pictorial guide of the natural beauty of the Appalachian Mountains collected on photographer Bill Booz's thru-hike of the entire 2,160-mile-long trail. This seven-month odyssey took Booz through 14 states and an estimated five million steps to complete.

A landscape photographer who travels the world to capture images of its most beautiful natural places, Booz's photographs transport viewers into some of nature's finest scenes — from delicate details of flowers in the spring to the majesty of the mountains in fall.

On his travels, Booz has visited all 50 states, and far-flung locales like China, Australia and Africa. He has SCUBA dived on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa and hiked on the Great Wall of China. Adventures like tracking Silverback gorillas in Rwanda, swimming with sharks in Central America and monkey’s jumping into his arms in China have all contributed to his amazing experiences.

Brent Holmes: Behold a Pale Horse

On loan from the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art

Working through a variety of media, Las Vegas artist Brent Holmes practices an active meditation on the challenges of manifesting the contemporary and historical presence of Black voices in the American West.

Observing that "actions lead to objects," the artist brings together sculpture, painting, performance, video and installation to cast a critical eye on the iconic forms of the cowboy, the railroad worker, the prospector and the tools that powered the westward movement of 19th-century settlers.

“Technology and progress have always been intermingled. The cowboy serves as an avatar for this in the West,” Holmes says. “An intersection of northern European, Spanish and African herding traditions, there is no more American representation of radical individualism and self-reliance."

Brent Holmes is an artist, activist and cultural animator whose work investigates contemporary social structures through a historical lens. Much of his work examines epistemological warfare, the body, food, play and cultural discourse. He has exhibited at the Torrance Art Museum, the Nevada Museum of Art, and is part of the permanent collection of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art. He is the co-organizer of the performance art event RADAR, an arts writer and curator.

The exhibition would not exist in its current form without the technical expertise of Michael Genova and Joshua Vermillion, the metal-working proficiency of John Stoelting, and the construction skills of Joel Spencer. The artist would also like to thank Ashanti McGee, his children, Patrick Sibily, Brandon Thompson, Rebecca Snetslaar and Claire Vaye Watkins.

The World Beside the Rails

On loan from the Robert Wright Forsyth Estate and Trust

A Richmond, Virginia native, Robert Wright Forsyth IV (1952–2021) often found himself at odds with society and the world outside the pond-side forest cottage he called home. As a link to the world around him, he began photographing the natural world. Forsyth was fascinated with the interplay of light, object and motion. When he began work with Norfolk Southern Railroad, machines took on a larger role in his photography, incorporating a sense of space very different from the wooded pond he loved. The natural world and the mechanical world formed a union that he explored until his death.

Once and Again: Alterations

Susan Lenz works in partnership with her materials to articulate the accumulated memory inherent in discarded things. By using multiples of seemingly mundane items, she puts into perspective the abundance of life and the capacity to keep things as if for a "rainy day." Paper clips, keys, bottle caps, buttons, nails, plastic spoons and old clock parts are combined with dominoes, film reels, old toys and holiday decorations. These and so many other, often vintage, items are repetitively hand-stitched into meditative patterns on sections of old quilts, bringing an extraordinary new life to otherwise everyday things.

Other altered works addresses marriage, systemic racism, genealogy, reliance on mechanical appliances and common adages. In each piece, Lenz uses a familiar object in an unexpected way to voice current ideas and social concern.

Lenz's work has appeared in national publications, numerous juried and invitational exhibitions and at fine craft shows including the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Craft Shows. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Textile Museum in Washington, DC and the McKissick Museum in South Carolina. Susan has been awarded fully funded fellowships to several art residencies including Great Basin National Park, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, The Anderson Center, PLAYA, Hot Springs National Park, the Studios of Key West, and Homestead National Monument. She has been featured on art quilting television programs, Columbia Museum of Art’s educational videos, and South Carolina Etv. Her solo shows and installations have been mounted all over the world, including at Mesa Contemporary Museum of Art and as far away as the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England.

Strong Women and Other Series

Linda Starr is an artist of passion whose work exudes the same colorful and playful energy as her spirit. Her intuitive painting process is an arrival point reached over a multi-decade career as a painter. In Starr's work, nothing is planned or pre-engineered. She applies paint on canvas without conscious thought to the subject, often rotating the canvas in different directions before determining how the images will emerge.

Her paintings are often sculptural, laden with texture and vibrant color, and always full of story. Starr uses shape, patterns and repetition to create whimsical scenes with rich tones and meaning. Much like the way a story provides setting, plot, characters and action to elicit an emotion from the reader, Starr intends to do the same for the viewer with her work.

Whether she is creating icon-like imagery of strong female leaders, like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, or a surrealistic cityscapes full of detail, Starr hopes to energize the viewer and to provide them with that same sense of joy that she feels during her spontaneous and free painting process.

A New York City native, Starr spent 10 years in private study with Carla Re’, 15 years in the film industry and 10 years designing window displays. Since relocating to North Carolina in 2007, she co-founded the North Carolina Women’s Art Collective and works to champion opportunities and make space for women artists of her age.
