|Civil war Art Reception
||An artist reception will be held for Dan Smith from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 11 in the McCreary Modern Gallery at Newton-Conover Auditorium.
Smith has his MFA in Painting from the University of South Carolina and his art has been featured throughout the country, from New York City to San Francisco. This exhibition titled, “US: A Civil War,” is part of a larger body of work made up of mixed media paintings, photographs and installations all inspired by the American Civil War. To draw that inspiration, Smith traveled throughout the U.S. visiting Civil War sites and observing historical reenactments. He also read extensively on the subject and used his experiences and even some physical materials he acquired on battle sites to produce the collection that is now on display at Newton-Conover Auditorium through March 31.
The reception on Feb. 11 will include a panel discussion with Professor Richard Eller, Sylvia Ray and artist, Dan Smith. In addition to teaching for CVCC, Eller is in residence at the History Museum of Catawba County and a local Civil War expert. He, along with Sylvia Ray, will be offering a historical perspective to Smith’s work and making connections to local Catawba County Civil War history. The panel discussion will begin at 6:30 p.m
The Newton-Conover Auditorium is located at 60 W. 6th St in Newton.
