UNC Charlotte is on YouTube
Artwork by Alumna Carmen Neely on Display
"Accumulations," an exhibit featuring work by UNC Charlotte alumna Carmen Neely, will be displayed through Wednesday, Feb. 4, in the Student Union Art Gallery.
According to the artist,"Accumulations" is the result of a new, more formalist approach to exploration in painting. Her earlier works focused predominately on references to the figure and have stemmed from ideologies about sexuality; Neely’s current compositions focus more intently on qualities of line and organic shape. "Even in their ambiguity these elements lend themselves to many different interpretations, including conversations about the body," Neely said. "In this way, my new work is a continuation of previous inquiries."
Neely’s work has been featured locally at Artspace 711, Twenty-Two Gallery and Hart Witzen Gallery in Charlotte; and Boyd Afficher Gallery in Concord. Images have been published in the University’s Sanskrit Literary-Arts Magazine.
Registration for Camps on Campus Begins on Jan. 27
UNC Charlotte's Camps on Campus offers children and young people the opportunity to join scientists, researchers, educators, writers, and actors in the creative atmosphere of a university campus. Camp offerings this year include JEDI LegoTM engineering, musical theatre, Minecraft, and smart art.
Families will notice something new this year when registering their children for the Camps on Campus program – the Niner Character Promise. In an effort to enhance Camps on Campus's culture of friendship, inclusion, and good citizenship, the camps staff created the Niner Character Promise. The new honor code encourages participants to treat fellow campers and staff with kindness, respect and cooperation in their words and actions; to seek help from others in resolving conflicts; and to respect the property of the University and others.
Last summer, nearly 1,000 children participated in Camps on Campus. Public registration begins at 8:00 AM on January 27. Visit the Camps on Campus website for more information.
