It’s the MLK holiday and campus is closed for faculty, staff, and students. This morning we wanted to share news of the work of one of our faculty members. Page Laughlin, Professor, and Smith Young Family Research Fellow, teaches painting at Wake Forest. So if your students have taken a studio art class in painting, they may know Dr. Laughlin.
In addition to the studio and classroom instruction that our arts faculty provide to our students, they are also active artists themselves. Dr. Laughlin’s work is being featured at the North Carolina Museum of Art in an exhibition called “Dwelling: Interiors.” Some information about the exhibition is below.
The Daily Deac especially wanted to draw attention to this for the families living in the Raleigh-Durham-Research Triangle area, because there will be a special talk with the artists on February 8th, along with a sneak preview of the exhibition. So if you are in the area on February 8th, please come out and show your support for Dr. Laughlin’s work.
Dwelling: Interiors by Page H. Laughlin and Pamela Pecchio, an exhibition of photographs and paintings by two contemporary artists, examines and compares the investigations of interior spaces in each artist’s recent body of work. Showing Pecchio’s Habitation series alongside Laughlin’s works based on design magazines reveals strikingly similar themes and aesthetics, though the artists are working separately and in different mediums. The dialogue created between these works further enriches them, drawing visitors into a new conversation about the variations of depicting domestic interiors and the underlying tensions in such imaginings. More information.
