Works by three artists comprise "CHROMA: lyrical lines and compulsive color," which opens Saturday, July 12, at the Projective Eye Gallery in UNC Charlotte Center City.
The display will feature color-soaked abstraction in oil paintings by Linda Luise Brown, acrylics and collage works by Marge Loudon Moody and the intricate surface design on ceramic objects and installations by Greg Scott. One of the highest-selling genres, abstract art is often one of the most misunderstood, too.
An opening reception for "CHROMA" will be from 6:00 - 8:00 PM, July 12, and it will feature a performance by pianist Dan Knight and conversations with the artists. The exhibit will run through Wednesday, Sept. 24.
As competition for talent heats up worldwide, UNC Charlotte researcher Qingfang Wang has identified critical factors that appear to give some communities a competitive edge.
Wang’s research considers highly skilled immigrants and immigrant entrepreneurs – what attracts them, what fosters their growth and what deters them from fully using their skills and knowledge.
"Obviously, highly skilled people are the major force in this new knowledge economy," said Wang, associate professor in the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences. “At the national and global level, I think this is really important to look into this issue in the context of this global competition.”
