Located in the Thomas I. Storrs Building on the UNC Charlotte campus, the Lambla Gallery showcases professional and student work relating to the curriculum in the School of Architecture and the creative endeavors of the College of Arts + Architecture. The gallery was named the Lambla Gallery on May 14, 2021, in honor of Ken Lambla, professor emeritus and founding dean of the College of Arts + Architecture.

Splendor and Chaos, an installation by Anna Kenar
“Splendor and Chaos is directly derived from a series of woodcuts I created in 2019, titled I carry this Splendor, this Chaos. The original series of hand printed woodcuts was inspired by nature, medical texts, surgical and sonographic images, and addresses the physical and emotional realm of damage and pain associated with endometriosis. The Splendor and Chaos installation consolidates the ideas drawn from those woodcuts. That of symmetry, order, nature, body, combined with those of turmoil, tension, power and violence. This installation, Splendor and Chaos, was created as a site-specific graphic installation; it transforms Storrs Gallery into an environment that both enhances self-awareness, and encourages reflection and observation.”
The mission of the CoA+A gallery system is to create lively forums in which the curious encounter the work of global, regional, and local artists through diverse media and dynamic exchanges that are nourished by the intellectual and creative life of the university. Our programming will echo crossovers of the visual arts, architecture, music, theatre, and dance inherent to the College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte. We seek to provide a haven for experimentation, to invigorate the environments we occupy, and to amplify the means to engage art and design in our community.
