The Projective Eye Gallery at UNC Charlotte Center City opened in September 2011. Curated by Director of Galleries Crista Cammaroto, the gallery presents major exhibitions and installations by national and international artists and distinguishes itself by presenting inter-disciplinary "happenings" in conjunction with exhibitions throughout the year.
About the CoA+A Gallery System
The mission of the College of Arts + Architecture gallery system is to create lively forums in which the curious encounter the work of global, regional, and local artists through diverse media and dynamic exchanges that are nourished by the intellectual and creative life of the university. Our programming will echo crossovers of the visual arts, architecture, music, theatre, and dance inherent to the College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte. We seek to provide a haven for experimentation, to invigorate the environments we occupy, and to amplify the means to engage art and design in our community.
A celebrated Caribbean artist, Stanley Greaves is known for a lifetime of creating surrealistic narrative accounts of Guyana’s politically tumultuous period during the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
More recently, his psycho-socially charged paintings have depicted shadow forms. In Murmurs on the Other Side of Light the shadow has its own life, forever elusive and symbolic of the “collective unconscious.”
The opening reception on November 23 includes an Artist Lecture at 7pm, with performance by Hardin Minor. Exhibition through January 3.
