Creative Mornings: Luke Buchanan

 

Luke Buchanan is an artist and designer living and working in Raleigh, North Carolina. Since graduating from the NCSU School of Architecture in 2002 Buchanan has been actively pursuing painting. In his work Buchanan combines photographs, found objects, drawing and collected miscellany in collaged paintings focused on abandoned spaces. In 2010 Buchanan was featured in New American Paintings issue #88. Recently he has found himself engaging more with the places he is drawn to through large scale murals and sign restoration.

WONDERLAND: Sarah Anne Johnson 2002-2014

Triangle, 2011, Chromogenic print, embossed and screen printed, Edition of 4

The work of Sarah Anne Johnson (b.1976 Winnipeg, Canada) playfully, but pointedly bridges dualities between the real and imagined; factual and fictive; lived and desired. She works from an unapologetically personal perspective that reflects her growing concerns for the world, combined with the pursuit of a utopian place that re-mains tantalizingly out of reach. At every step Johnson attempts to nudge reality closer to her ideals, supplementing quixotic photographs with humble dioramas, sculpey figurines, painterly interludes, handcrafted doll-houses and all manner of modifications performed upon the photo itself. This survey exhibition brings together her five major bodies of work to date, along with two large-scale installations set in furtive, shimmering forest. As a whole, Wonderland presents the first opportunity to trace the continuity and inspiring evolution of this young artist's practice. Curated by: Steven Matijcio, Curator, Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati

So & So Poetry Series

The So & So Series began in Boston in 2006 and moved to Raleigh in 2008. Featuring both local and national poets, So & So has hosted more than 300 readers, including Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners. In order to connect more fully with Raleigh's arts community, So & So has partnered with CAM Raleigh once more for the 2015 season. Poets will be responding to pieces of their choosing in whatever exhibit is being shown at the time of their reading. The hope is that this will start a dialogue between the poets and the artists and may even lead to interesting and exciting collaborations.

For more information please visit: So and So Poetry Series.
