Andrew Leventis: Re-Collections

January 9-27
Opening Reception January 18, 5:00-7:00 pm
Rowe Lower Gallery

UNC Charlotte Assistant Professor Andrew Leventis is an oil painter who references imagery from film and television in his work, reflecting on society’s connection to mass-produced media images: "With social media and Facebook advertising, the human being is represented ever more as commodity. My painting acknowledges the history of humans conceiving of one another as commodities. Yet at the same time, it attempts to re-establish the human being as cherished, emotive, thinking, original, and individual."

Alessandra Sulpy: Store Facades and other stories

January 9-27
Opening Reception January 18, 5:00-7:00 pm
Rowe Upper Gallery

Three interconnected series make up this exhibition of work by UNC Charlotte Lecturer Alessandra (Ally) Sulpy. Store Facades reminagines largely forgotten, small-town American business districts. Bland Intruders is a spin-off of Store Facades and focuses on the hidden "fern" –  any (probably fake) potted plant. Beefcakes explores the men’s clothing catalogs and “muscle” magazines of the 1960s and 70s. "With my paintings, I try to reintroduce vitality back into these places by introducing larger-than-life elements, such as collage, fluorescence, and glowing signage. I allude to the superimposed elements of time through vintage ephemera, transient space, and layered paint."
