03.12.2010

HIGH POINT, N.C., March 12, 2010 – The Sechrest Gallery at High Point University will soon feature an exquisite example of figurative works as part of its newest exhibit.

The exhibit, which opens on March 16 and runs through April 27, will deal with the human form in drawing, painting and sculpture. The art pieces are comprised primarily of classical traditional work with contemporary painting.

The exhibit will highlight superlative pieces by local sculptor, James Barnhill, who is renowned for his General Nathaniel Greene Revolutionary war hero sculpture that is on permanent display in Greensboro. The show will also include studio paintings and intimate drawings by Bruce Shores, instructor of visual arts at HPU, among other work by other university art instructors. Academic drawings and oil portraits that date back to the 1930s by Virginia Rose Campbell will also be featured in the exhibit. Campbell, a former Trinity resident, continued portrait work well into her 90s.

An opening reception for the upcoming show will be held at 3:30 p.m. on March 18 in the Sechrest Gallery.

The exhibition is open to the public 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Those interested in attending can call 336-841-4685 or contact Maxine Campbell at mcampbel@highpoint.edu for more information on dates and times.
