The Fine Art Museum at Western Carolina University will host a “Third Thursday” reception for a new exhibit, “Critology,” beginning at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21.
Artists Max Presneill and Mary Anna Pomonis will deliver an artists talk at the event, which is free and open to the public.
“Critology: Considering the Art of the Critic/Curator” will run through May 10 and features the work of nine artists who also work as art writers, critics and curators.
By analyzing their own creative fields, the artists featured in “Critology” elevate “their personal vision and the creative potential within their own work,” said Ron Laboray, the exhibit’s curator and WCU assistant professor of painting and drawing.
In addition to Pomonis and Presneill, the exhibit comprises painting, drawing, collage and photography by Buzz Spector, Eve Wood, Annie Buckley, Dawson Weber, Mel Watkins, Michelle Grabner and Hamlett Dobbins.
Fine Art Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and until 7 p.m. Thursdays. Museum admission and parking are free. For more information, go online to fineartmuseum.wcu.edu or call 828-227-3591.
