Reception:  WEDNESDAY, October 27, 2021  5-6 p.m.


Every two years, the Department of Art at UNC Pembroke issues a call for alumni to submit work to be chosen for a juried exhibition in the A.D. Gallery.   This year, we invited seventeen of our graduates to participate.   The resulting artwork on display through October ranges across multiple styles and media, including photography, imaginative figurative paintings, digital abstractions, video, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, and drawing.
