Abstract:
The art of Long Creek, Pender County, North Carolina native Minnie Evans will be displayed through this spring in the North Carolina Gallery. Evans work is often inspired by a religious vision she had in the 1930s and from her time as a gatekeeper at the Airlie Gardens at Wrightsville Beach. Evans work often incorporates nature and is described as being closer to Near Eastern art than Western prototypes. The approximately 30 works include paintings, drawings, and collages.

Abstract:
The process for how the North Carolina Museum of Art deaccessions works of art and uses the funds raised from deaccessioning to build their collection is explored. The Museum deaccessions, or gets rid of, works of art from its collection for a variety of reasons. The Museum may remove works that are of: inferior quality; outside the collecting scope at the present or foreseeable future; duplicates, works similar to others, or possessing insufficient educational value; works in such poor condition that they are not fit to display; and fakes. Many of the 1,000-1,200 works recently deaccessioned were accepted as gifts around 1956 when the Museum was first opening and accepted anything that was given to them regardless of quality or value.

Abstract:
The Museum recently acquired three sculptures and an African headdress. The Dead Christ by Italian Giuseppe Mazzuoli (1655-1725) is a bronze sculpture of Christ after his death and is considered one of the best examples of late Roman baroque sculpture in the United States. The wood carvings with beads of a Pair of Ibeji (Twin Figures) are from Nigeria’s Yoruba tribe and the figures were used in a ritual after the death of twins in child birth. The Sawfish Headdress is from Nigeria’s Ibo tribe and is made of wood with paint and mirror glass. The headdress is in the form of a sawfish, is 7 feet in length, and was worn at festivals or masquerades to gain favor with the water spirits.

Abstract:
Artist Buky Schwartz’s new Videospiral piece combines painting, drawing, sculpture, video in a work which demands the involvement of the viewer. Viewers encounter black and white forms on a wall to the left and free standing sculptures as they walk through the exhibit space. On the right of the exhibit, video monitors show viewers interactions with the piece from another angle which adds depth and motion to the static artwork. The work changes as the viewers move down the exhibition space and the perspective shown on each subsequent video monitor show these changes over time.
