Abstract:
North Carolina artist Jim Starrett’s paintings and drawings will be on display in the North Carolina Gallery this fall. Dating from 1976 to 1983, Starrett’s work focuses on the failure of organized religion to actively oppose the Nazis during World War II. Of particular focus is the Catholic Church and Pope Pius XII’s lack of action. His works are full of symbolism and are marked by a hard-edged, linear geometry and loose brushwork.

Abstract:
The North Carolina Museum of Arts’ collection of European paintings is one of the finest and most important in the United States. The history of the collections’ acquisition and rationale for collection is detailed from the 1940s through the 1960s. Until the opening of the new museum, the collection was primarily viewed outside of North Carolina due to a lack of space at the old museum. Beginning September 10, the European paintings will be on view in a series of sequential galleries in the new museum after restoration work in the museum's new conservation laboratory.
