Art Exhibit: State of the Art/Art of the State
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington
3201 S. 17th St.
(910) 395-5999
One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.

Admission,
NC Aquarium, Kure Beach
900 Loggerhead Rd.
(910) 458-8257
– A new art installation, “What Comes Around, Goes Around” at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher focuses on the growing problem of marine debris. Artist and researcher Bonnie Monteleone created multi-media work incorporating plastic marine debris collected during her fieldwork studying 3 ocean gyres (an ocean circulation system) over nearly 10,000 nautical miles. The collected debris collected was electronically morphed into the famous print, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai. Each image also contains tangible pieces of plastics taken from the marine environment. “I chose to commandeer ‘The Great Wave’ in order to convey the message that it is a different ocean than what Hokusai saw less than 200 years ago,” said Monteleone. “The work beautifully depicts the ocean, the menace of plastic, how all of us are part of the problem and how we are the only solution.” “What Goes Around, Comes Around,” is an outreach component of Plastic Ocean Project, Inc., whose mission is to educate through field research, implement progressive outreach initiatives and incubate solutions to address the global plastic pollution problem. The installation will remain on exhibit until December 2014.

In this warm and witty comedy from the great American playwright Isreal Horovitz, New Yorker Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when Gold arrives in France to sell his newly acquired home, he is surprised by a tenant who refuses to budge. His apartment turns out to be a viager - an ancient French real estate system- with some complicated, rather funky rules. Gold finds himself in a contract that forces him to pay monthly installments to the feisty old lady (Maggie Smith) and her live-in daughter (Kristin Scott Thomas) who have inhabited his apartment.

In this warm and witty comedy from the great American playwright Isreal Horovitz, New Yorker Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when Gold arrives in France to sell his newly acquired home, he is surprised by a tenant who refuses to budge. His apartment turns out to be a viager - an ancient French real estate system- with some complicated, rather funky rules. Gold finds himself in a contract that forces him to pay monthly installments to the feisty old lady (Maggie Smith) and her live-in daughter (Kristin Scott Thomas) who have inhabited his apartment. (PG-13, 1hr 47 min)
Art Exhibit: State of the Art/Art of the State
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington
3201 S. 17th St.
(910) 395-5999
One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.

Admission,
NC Aquarium, Kure Beach
900 Loggerhead Rd.
(910) 458-8257
– A new art installation, “What Comes Around, Goes Around” at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher focuses on the growing problem of marine debris. Artist and researcher Bonnie Monteleone created multi-media work incorporating plastic marine debris collected during her fieldwork studying 3 ocean gyres (an ocean circulation system) over nearly 10,000 nautical miles. The collected debris collected was electronically morphed into the famous print, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai. Each image also contains tangible pieces of plastics taken from the marine environment. “I chose to commandeer ‘The Great Wave’ in order to convey the message that it is a different ocean than what Hokusai saw less than 200 years ago,” said Monteleone. “The work beautifully depicts the ocean, the menace of plastic, how all of us are part of the problem and how we are the only solution.” “What Goes Around, Comes Around,” is an outreach component of Plastic Ocean Project, Inc., whose mission is to educate through field research, implement progressive outreach initiatives and incubate solutions to address the global plastic pollution problem. The installation will remain on exhibit until December 2014.

Art Exhibit: State of the Art/Art of the State
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington
3201 S. 17th St.
(910) 395-5999
One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.
Art Exhibit: Trashy Sea Art
Admission,
NC Aquarium, Kure Beach
900 Loggerhead Rd.
(910) 458-8257
– A new art installation, “What Comes Around, Goes Around” at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher focuses on the growing problem of marine debris. Artist and researcher Bonnie Monteleone created multi-media work incorporating plastic marine debris collected during her fieldwork studying 3 ocean gyres (an ocean circulation system) over nearly 10,000 nautical miles. The collected debris collected was electronically morphed into the famous print, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai. Each image also contains tangible pieces of plastics taken from the marine environment. “I chose to commandeer ‘The Great Wave’ in order to convey the message that it is a different ocean than what Hokusai saw less than 200 years ago,” said Monteleone. “The work beautifully depicts the ocean, the menace of plastic, how all of us are part of the problem and how we are the only solution.” “What Goes Around, Comes Around,” is an outreach component of Plastic Ocean Project, Inc., whose mission is to educate through field research, implement progressive outreach initiatives and incubate solutions to address the global plastic pollution problem. The installation will remain on exhibit until December 2014.

Art Exhibit: State of the Art/Art of the State
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington
3201 S. 17th St.
(910) 395-5999
One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.

Admission,
NC Aquarium, Kure Beach

– A new art installation, “What Comes Around, Goes Around” at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher focuses on the growing problem of marine debris. Artist and researcher Bonnie Monteleone created multi-media work incorporating plastic marine debris collected during her fieldwork studying 3 ocean gyres (an ocean circulation system) over nearly 10,000 nautical miles. The collected debris collected was electronically morphed into the famous print, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai. Each image also contains tangible pieces of plastics taken from the marine environment. “I chose to commandeer ‘The Great Wave’ in order to convey the message that it is a different ocean than what Hokusai saw less than 200 years ago,” said Monteleone. “The work beautifully depicts the ocean, the menace of plastic, how all of us are part of the problem and how we are the only solution.” “What Goes Around, Comes Around,” is an outreach component of Plastic Ocean Project, Inc., whose mission is to educate through field research, implement progressive outreach initiatives and incubate solutions to address the global plastic pollution problem. The installation will remain on exhibit until December 2014.
