HIGH POINT, N.C., March 26, 2013 – The Sechrest Gallery at High Point University will host “Graphically Speaking” – the first show of this kind at HPU that will feature a variety of prints and posters of winning entries from the Art Directors Club Annual Awards Exhibition. The exhibit will be open from April 10-23; an opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on April 12 in the Sechrest Gallery. It is open to the public.
“HPU is one of many stops for this worldwide traveling exhibit. In fact, the show is coming to HPU directly following a show in Israel,” says Maxine Campbell, gallery director and instructor in the School of Art and Design. “This unique show will be displayed everywhere from New York to London to Beijing. Thousands of people in many nations will have the opportunity to view the talents of the many artists featured in the show.”
The Art Directors Club, based in New York City, is one of the most concentrated groups of creative talent in the world, and serves as a gathering place for leaders in visual communication. The Traveling Exhibition helps spread the ADC’s mission to “Connect, Provoke and Elevate” around the globe.
“‘Graphically Speaking’ gives not only our students a remarkable chance to learn from artists from around the world, but members of our community as well,” Campbell adds. “Additionally, chapters of the American Institute of Graphic Arts from Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Raleigh will be present at the opening reception. The AIGA is the oldest and largest professional membership organization for design; their presence will provide a great opportunity for our students to network and make connections with professionals in the field.”
