The Projective Eye Gallery, located in UNC Charlotte Center City, will present "Murmurs on the Other Side of Light," surreal paintings of the life of the shadow by Guyanese artist Stanley Greaves from Friday, Nov. 22, through Friday, Jan. 3.
A celebrated Caribbean artist, Greaves is known for a lifetime of creating surrealistic narrative accounts of Guyana’s politically tumultuous period during the 1960s, 70s and 80s. More recently, his psychosocially charged paintings have depicted shadow forms. In this series, the shadow has its own life, forever elusive and symbolic of the “collective unconscious.” These dark figures move with celebration, triumph and the playfulness of a child, presented from the wise and long-lived perspective of a Caribbean surrealist in his 70s.
The Projective Eye Gallery, part of the UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture, is open seven days a week, from 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM.
The Charlotte 49ers Athletic Foundation raised a record $191,000 at its 10th annual "Let Me Play" luncheon to surpass its goal and eclipse the $1 million mark overall in monies raised.
The "Let Me Play" Luncheon was held at the Charlotte Convention Center and attracted many of Charlotte’s most accomplished female corporate and community leaders. The event, conceived by Charlotte 49ers Director of Athletics Judy Rose, is designed to mobilize influential women in the Charlotte area in support of women’s athletics and share with them the importance athletic participation can play in the development of young women.
"I wanted the attendees to understand the character building and leadership development skills that were taking place while student-athletes were preparing for their athletic and academic endeavors," said Rose. "I want them to know that we’re preparing young women to be tomorrow’s leaders."
