“Counterpart” and “The Figure and Narrative”

We are pleased to announce two concurrent exhibitions on the continually pertinent subject of figuration and narrative in painting at the UNO-St. Claude Gallery. Guest curator and artist, Professor Michael Ananian (University of North Carolina – Greensboro), will hold a solo exhibition of his paintings titled “Counterpart” in conjunction with “The Figure and Narrative,” a show of paintings he selected to explore themes about visual narratives involving the human form. This exhibit includes works by John Hull (Charleston, SC), Robert Igoe (Greensboro, NC), Margaret McCann (New York City, NY), Nicole McCormick Santiago (Williamsburg, VA), and Tanya Tewell (Murfreesboro, TN).
