Join us for the opening reception of home/journeys, an exhibition sponsored by the City of Raleigh Arts Commission, Thursday, April 8, from 5-7 p.m. at the Block Gallery. The gallery is located on the first and second floor of Raleigh’s municipal building, 222 West Hargett Street, downtown Raleigh. This is the second exhibition of the 2010 EXHIBITING DICHOTOMIES series.
Home/journeys at the Block Gallery features the work of Kathy Brancato and Kenneth Eugene Peters, with second-floor cases containing mixed media work by Mikel Robinson. The artists explore familiar landscapes altered by such aspects as shape, light, and time.
The exhibition will also preview the film “Resident Tourist” by freelance video filmmaker Tim Kiernan. “Resident Tourist” compares the artist’s travels in China with his home in Raleigh, utilizing a triptych format. The film will also subsequently be displayed at the Arts Commission’s latest satellite exhibition site, Block2, located in the window of the Urban Design Center, 133 Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. Films curated by Neill Prewitt and created by local video artists will be shown at Block2 from dusk to 2 a.m., running concurrently with Block Gallery exhibitions.
The opening day reception for home/journeys features, additionally, a literary reading by acclaimed author Maureen Sherbondy, commencing at 5:30 p.m. at Block Gallery.
Home/journeys will be on display April 8 – May 24.
