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 23rd-century world of "Mortal Engines" looks great: a fabulous and richly textured steampunk dystopia of haves and have-nots straight out of H.G. Wells. Populated, on the one side, by people in frock coats festooned with gold braid, and, on the other, begrimed laborers in goggles and grease-…

It’s an odd-ball sort of bush.

It’s a native species — nothing odd about that — and it was originally restricted entirely to the coast, from North Carolina all the way to Mississippi.

Now, though, it is common well inland within all of these states, and beyond, and appears…

She watched the first performance in 1985 when her daughter, Marty, was a dancer. She was in the audience when her granddaughter, Holton, twirled…
