December Third Friday at Durham Arts Council

December 17, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Joy and creativity are in the air this December Third Friday at the DAC! Join us from 6-8pm on Friday, December 17 for two new exhibits and a pop-up gallery!

Montana-based artist Elizabeth Stone was the Cassilhaus (Chapel Hill) artist-in-residence in October 2021; we’re delighted to feature resulting work from that residency in our Allenton Gallery! Artworks on view from Stone’s I REMEMBER project incorporate thousands of photographic negatives and slides that were collected from generous community members in the greater Durham, Chapel Hill and Hillsborough, North Carolina communities. Each donation depicts individual and family histories and collectively, the artwork functions as a record of the area’s identity.

In our upstairs Semans Gallery, we’re excited to host a curated collection from the North Carolina Central University Department of Art! “NCCU Department of Art Student Works” is a survey of pieces from the emerging designers, studio artists, and students concentrating in NCCU’s newly formed Animation and Interactive Media classes. This exhibit features many figurative works, particularly self portraits. The students artists have used various media to express how they view themselves and their place in the social structure of home, school and society.

This Third Friday, we will also host a pop-up gallery of work in our Pavilion lobby – a selection of paintings from Debra Wuliger. Wuliger’s “Pattern Lapping Pattern” is currently on view in the Durham Convention Center. The pieces on view for one-night-only in our Pavilion space are part of the series of work that visitors can see at the Convention Center during their public hours (M-F, 8:30am-5:30pm). These vibrant paintings explore the open ended emotional resonance of interlocking pattern and color.

Stop by for a festive evening of art appreciation this Friday! See you at the DAC!
