Coffee with the Curator: Look Again
Take a walk through the galleries with the artist and get a behind-the-scenes look into Ward Nichols: Look Again.
A native of West Virginia, Ward Nichols (b. 1930) made his home nearby in North Wilkesboro, NC. His hyper-realistic paintings are visualized from photographs he takes of everlasting landscapes, abandoned structures, and everyday objects. Spend a little more time with his paintings, however, and Nichols offers rewards through quirky details, such as humorous compositions, nonfunctional door hinges, and hidden eyes that lock unexpectedly with those of the viewers. Ward Nichols: Look Again encourages visitors to ponder the mundane and experience the beautiful within it.
Afterwards, guests are invited to converse and pose questions while enjoying complimentary coffee (courtesy of Hatchet Coffee Co.) with the Curator at the Museum.
Update 3/14/16: Unfortunately Ward Nichols and Jordan Ahlers will unable to join us for this event as previously advertised.
