The galleries of the Rowe Arts Building at UNC Charlotte will host Angela Franks Wells: Copper Mine and Jason Lee: Structured Environments from March 6 to April 3.
Angela Franks Wells is a photography-based artist who specializes in 19th-century photographic processes and is a master at copperplate photogravure. Her work explores a range of ideas including the precious vs. ephemera, labor and craftsmanship, beauty, and place and/or space. Jason Lee, a multi-media sculptor and installation artist, incorporates a wide variety of materials and techniques into his oddly humorous constructions and presentations. In some of Lee's most recent work he utilizes custom fabricated light boxes as well as cast plastic ducks and extruded foam fences to create his vision of the ideal landscape.
