This year’s lineup at the Gibbes Museum of Art will cover an array of topics and encourage visitors to engage with new art forms and genres.
“We are excited for another year of engaging exhibitions and talented artists for our guests to experience in 2023,” said Angela Mack, executive director of the museum.
The lineup of 2023 exhibitions will serve to advance the museum’s four themes of health and wellness, social justice, innovation and conservation and the environment, Mack said in a statement.
“The Gibbes aims to introduce new art forms, promote creativity and connect the community with art in new and exciting ways, and our special exhibitions and visiting artists program both promote that goal,” she said.
On March 17, the museum will welcome the Damian Stamer: Ruminations exhibit, which will run until Oct. 15 in galleries two and three. This exhibit showcases new work by North Carolina-based contemporary painter, Damian Stamer.
Stamer depicts barns, abandoned buildings and other vernacular structures. His heavily layered canvases blur the line between abstraction and representation as they seek to express the beauty of the old and overlooked.
