Recycling art

A Time for Science, 729 Dickinson Ave., will host the exhibit “The Art of Recycling” through March 15. The exhibit is designed to educate people about the amount of trash they produce and to help them see garbage in a new light. The exhibit will feature local artist Jonathan Bowling, who uses entirely recycled metals to create works of art. Bowling will answer questions about his work during an Under the Microscope “Artists and Ales Edition” from 5-8 p.m. today. Visit atimeforscience.org or call 364-2862

Gray Gallery

A Master's of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition will be held from today through March 24. An exhibit opening is scheduled from 5-8 p.m. today.

The exhibition includes the work of four artists graduating from the master of fine arts program in the School of Art and Design.

Featured artists represent three studio areas in the school: Rachel Clark and Brendan Mims, ceramics; Brian James Culbertson, photography; and Katya Harris, painting and drawing.

Clark's work has been featured in venues including Strictly Functional Pottery National, the North Carolina Pottery Center, Dog's Eye Gallery and Emerge Gallery and has been published in Ceramics Monthly. Culbertson's research is focused on the prevalence of prescription medications in contemporary treatment of mental illness and photography's role in the representation of those living with mental illness. Harris' exhibition, “Fracture,” is inspired by identity representation in visual culture and identity politics. For his exhibit, Mims designed and constructed Against a Sea of Troubles as an experience of a single player version of a game which traditionally takes two. His work is designed to challenge perceptions of acceptable interactions with art.

The Wellington B. Gray Gallery is in the Jenkins Fine Arts Center on ECU’s campus. Call 328-6665.

The Downeast National Juried Sculpture Exhibition will be on display from today through March 30. An opening reception will be held from 5-8 p.m. today.

We should all force ourselves to take reflective retreats.

Since most of us just can’t or won’t do it, it’s a very good thing that our wonderful American system inevitably forces all of us into a tough “time in the wilderness.”
