Art lovers, this is your chance to see the work of one of America's most celebrated artists. Andy Warhol became a household name in the 1960s when he redefined what visual art could be—his pop art changed the way the public viewed art as well as popular culture.
For a limited time, Charlotteans can see Warhol's work in person. From Feb. 7 to April 12, 2019, you can head to David McCune International Art Gallery in Fayetteville, N.C., to see some of the artist's most iconic works. Located at Methodist University (just under three hours away), this international art gallery houses a variety of interesting works throughout the year, and "gallery goes P O P: Warhol" is just one example.
Kicking off with an opening reception on Feb. 7 from 6:30 to 9 p.m., the Warhol exhibition will feature 34 silk-screened images, 30 images lent from The Cochran Collection (a private collector), and four images lent from the Ackland Museum of UNC, Chapel Hill. Warhol’s silk-screened prints provide a range of the American artist's unique body of work — from his Myths Series, Cowboys and Indians Series, Ads Series, and Art and Sports Series, to his Icon Portraits and Moonwalk Suite. The opening reception on Feb. 7 will also feature a gallery talk by Nicole Dezelon of the Andy Warhol Museum at 7:15 p.m.
A few highlights to look for at this limited-time exhibition? The Witch, Mickey Mouse, John Wayne, Donald Duck, Sitting Bull, Grace Kelly, and other notable Warhol pieces await your presence.
