Damian Stamer and Peter Glenn Oakley exhibit at SECCA


“The breadth of work in Point & Counterpoint shows that North Carolina is a distinctive incubator for artistic experimentation, a place where an artist can live, work, find fellowship, and bond a community,” Cora Fisher, exhibition curator, said. “The innovations of these North Carolina artists reflect specific relationships to place and build on local traditions of making.”

Together, the artists in the exhibition offer a snapshot into what some of the best artists in North Carolina are doing and why they were recipients of the prestigious award, said Jeff Pettus, who oversees the Arts Council’s Artist Fellowship Program.
