Brad Thomas returns to North Carolina to debut new paintings and sculptures that deal with the written word and its limitations and powers. Both artists will be in attendance at the reception.

Opening Receptions for Arthur Jafa and Jen Ray
Davidson College Art Galleries
The Smith Gallery will play host to Arthur Jafa’s video installation Love Is the Message, The Message Is Death, which traces the African American experience through found photographs and footage. Set to the sound of Kanye West’s gospel-inspired track “Ultralight Beam,” the 2016 film is in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and this is its first showing in the Southeast. In the Van Every gallery, Jen Ray’s work will be on view in the solo exhibition Surrounded by Wolves, which is an investigation into the feminist identity in the American south. This multidisciplinary artist will present large scale watercolor paintings, sculpture, installation, audio and two performances which will take place at the opening and on February 7 at the Mint Museum.
