“Art is the signature of civilizations.”

– Jean Sibelius

Dear Friends of ARTS NC STATE: I will never forget my first visit to the North Carolina Museum of Art in 1975. It was a cold, blustery rainy day, and not much seemed to be happening on Morgan Street in downtown Raleigh. To be honest, while I was curious to see the collection, I was equally motivated to escape the awful weather whipping around me outside. How lucky I was. In one of those wonderful moments that we learn to treasure, I found myself in the company of Frederick Carl Frieseke’s The Garden Parasol, a painting that many of you can immediately see in your own mind’s eye. Within moments, I forgot the gloomy, dreary day outside and was emotionally transported to a lush, sun-dappled, efflorescent landscape where afternoons move at a leisurely, almost sensual pace. I was fascinated by French literature and music at the time, and I was young enough to let myself imagine that the central figure, a beautiful young lady seated under a brilliantly-colored parasol, might be reading the poetry of Verlaine or possibly a novel by André Gide. Perhaps she would attend an evening concert featuring the music of Debussy or Ravel… As you can tell, my encounter with this wonderful French-inspired, American painting transfixed and transported me from the rainy streets of Raleigh to the artist’s sun-splashed summer garden in Giverny. (Yes, the same Giverny made famous by Frieseke’s neighbor, Claude Monet.) Almost 40 years after that first visit, I am so thankful to generations of North Carolina legislators who understood the transforming power and fundamental importance of the arts, and who had the vision to create the first major state-supported, state-funded museum collection in the United States, and who also created the first state-supported symphony in the country. A dear friend of mine once observed how lucky she was to grow up in North Carolina, where the arts are valued and supported and whose citizens are proud to be “the people who guard and preserve these cultural treasures.” On behalf of countless NC State students who have experienced the unique capacity the arts have to free our spirits and make our souls sing, thank you for preserving our rich artistic heritage and for supporting ARTS NC STATE!

arts & g n i

minds by Orla Swift

It’s a quiet summer night at the N.C. State Crafts Center. School’s out. Locals are off on holidays. But in every corner of the center, things are taking shape. Sophomore Brian Haidet turns a glass bead over a flame, embellishing it with bands of color. Katie Allen saws a wooden shelf for a jewelry box she designed. A group of women talk quietly with instructor Naomi Profesorsky as they weave beaded pendants. Down the hall, the Twisted Thread Fiber Arts Guild holds its monthly meeting. And across the lobby, artist Kirk Adam’s students prepare canvases and paint with acrylics. The Crafts Center is all about shaping – be it making a work of art or broadening the perspectives of those who come by to create. Even the center itself has morphed – from the $16 million 2008-09 renovation of its home base, Frank Thompson Hall, to revamped program offerings designed to serve today’s endlessly busy students. It’s an exciting time for the center, and for those who use it. Take Anne McLean. At 21 and in her senior year as a polymer and color chemistry major in the College of Textiles, McLean has tried her hand at a variety of crafts at the center, from jewelry wire-wrapping to metal-working and soldering, wood-turning and ceramics. She now teaches classes in several of these skills, as well as Coptic bookbinding, and she works at the front desk. “I very quickly became attached. It’s a pretty inviting place,” says McLean, who first explored the center while on a tour with her Arts Village dormmates. Located on Jensen Drive on the lower level of Thompson Hall, the

Upon arriving, the 26-year-old promptly signed up for a woodworking class taught by Crafts Center director George Thomas and instructor Evan Lightner, and she spent one to two nights a week designing and building her jewelry box and learning as much as she could about the massive array of tools and machines in the spacious wood shop. Thomas knows that hunger well. He discovered the Crafts Center in 1978, while majoring in technology education at NC State. He dove in full-force, heading to the wood shop four to five nights a week to practice woodcarving and learn to make furniture. But it wasn’t just his woodworking knowledge that expanded in those heady days. Thomas says he also learned a lot about life from the people around him – most notably from his mentor, Doreen Underwood, who had worked with President Eisenhower’s Supreme Allied Command in Europe during World War II and had many a tale to tell. “I was hooked from day one,” Thomas says of the center, which opened in 1964 and is now one of the largest university crafts centers in the nation. “I camped out by the door, hoping a job would come open.” He served as a student volunteer during college and a community volunteer thereafter, while teaching wood shop full-time at East Garner Middle School. After Underwood retired in 1990, Thomas became assistant director and

“I was hooked from day one… I camped out by the door, hoping a job would come open.” Crafts Center may feel a little off the beaten path. Enter the doors, though, and you'll be amazed at the magnitude of activity occurring, McLean says. The Thompson renovations made the Crafts Center even more of a vital resource for artists. From the new, cutting-edge torch system for lampwork and off-mandrel glass classes to new pottery kilns and wheels, new woodworking equipment, lighted window displays, 60” monitors to support instruction, and other technological upgrades, the center has taken a dramatic leap from its best-kept-secret past. “It’s cool because when you walk down that little drive, you see the windows, you see the art in them, you see some people moving around in there,” McLean says. “But it’s not until you walk through that door that you really get a sense of how big it is and all the things that are happening inside. It’s pretty awesome.” Allen, the woodworker, recently moved to Raleigh from the Chicago area precisely because of the Crafts Center. Her parents had a shop in their basement, where she made wooden dolls. She knew she’d miss it too much if she moved just anywhere. She liked North Carolina, so she Googled her woodworking desires, and up popped the Crafts Center.

then associate director. When longtime director Jim Pressley retired in 2007 (having started his own career there as a student volunteer 42 years earlier), Thomas became interim director, a position that became permanent as the center prepared for its grand reopening in 2009. Now Thomas and his staff are on a mission to make sure that everyone in the local community – most notably NC State students – has the opportunity to be hooked just as he was, whether it’s for a weekend pinhole camera competition, a $5 intro class, a skateboard-making workshop, troubleshooting for an engineering class project or, like McLean, for years of multi-media exploration. Haidet, the glass-worker, says he loves balancing his material science and physics studies with a night at the studio, turning out beads, marbles and other creations. “Sometimes after a whole bunch of exams, I come in here and flame-work for hours,” he says. “If something goes wrong, you can always make another bead.” Orla Swift was a theatre critic and arts reporter at the News & Observer and other newspapers for 20 years, and is now director of marketing and communications at Sarah P. Duke Gardens.   7

The Ceramic Art of Siglinda Scarpa

Cameron Carpenter

NC State Dance Program

Totally Beethoven: Music @ NC State Celebrates 90 Years Sunday, November 17 at 4pm  Meymandi Concert Hall, Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts In celebration of its 90th anniversary, the Music Department, in conjunction with the Raleigh Civic Symphony Association, will present an all-Beethoven concert. Under the direction of Dr. Nathan Leaf, the Raleigh Civic Symphony will perform three works: the Overture to Egmont, Op. 84; the Triple Concerto, Op. 56, with violinist Brian Reagin, cellist Dr. Jonathan Kramer, and pianist Dr. Olga Kleiankina; and the Choral Fantasy, Op. 80, with the combined NC State choirs and pianist Dr. Tom Koch.

And With This Shell, the Sea: The Ceramic Art of Siglinda Scarpa Exhibition: November 21-January 31, Opening reception: Thursday, November 21, 6-8pm Historic chancellor’s residence, 1903 Hillsborough Street Siglinda Scarpa was born in northwestern Italy at the outset of World War II, and was still in her mid-teens when she left school to be apprenticed to a master ceramicist. This turned out to be a pivotal moment in a life that would later lead to studios in Rome and New York, and eventually to Pittsboro, North Carolina, where she founded her own small art pottery studio and has been making her clay art and sheltering abandoned cats ever since. Exhibition open by appointment (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm); call 919.513.7244 or 919.515.3503, or email

Cameron Carpenter Friday, November 22 at 8pm, Saturday, November 23 at 5pm & 8pm  Titmus Theatre To call Cameron Carpenter a virtuoso seems wholly inadequate. Hypertalented and flamboyant, his approach to the organ is smashing the stereotypes of organists and organ music while generating an unprecedented level of acclaim and exposure. Now living in Berlin, he attended high school at the UNC School of the Arts before moving on to Juilliard. A staunch advocate of liberating organ music from musty cathedrals, Cameron Carpenter will be performing on his new international touring organ, custom built by digital organ pioneers Marshall & Ogletree.

the campaign for the

of art & design

is closing the gap!

$3.6 million in student and university support + $2.1 million raised privately as of September 2013 + $1.8 million more given by supporters like you = $7.5 million and a new Gregg Museum!

Fund-raising progress Major Gifts

More than 25 generous individuals and foundations have chosen to make a major commitment of $25,000 or more to the Gregg Museum Campaign. Several have chosen to name spaces in the new Gregg and will be recognized with permanent donor plaques once the museum is complete. All of these visionary supporters believe in the future Gregg Museum of Art & Design, and we thank them for their support!

Nearly 40 households have joined the Founding Friends of the Gregg Museum Campaign!

The campaign’s Founding Friends program recognizes donors of $5,000+. Our goal is to recruit 200 Founding Friends and raise $1 million, nearly a quarter of our total private fund-raising goal. Founding Friends gifts (like all gifts to the campaign) may be paid over five years; therefore, you may contribute $1,000 each year for five years. Founding Friends will be acknowledged permanently on a comprehensive plaque that will be displayed prominently in the future museum. Together, the community can build the new Gregg!

As a reminder‌

All pledges to the Gregg Museum Campaign may be paid over a period of up to five years from the date of the original commitment. No gift is too large or small!

Check out the Gregg Campaign website!

Visit the Gregg Museum Campaign website at newgregg.ncsu. edu to see design renderings, to keep up with our fund-raising progress, to read about our donors, and to learn more about the Gregg Museum of Art & Design and its 26,000+ item collection!

Students Bring Energy to the Arts by Kate Dobbs Ariail

Students Bring EnergytotheArts What did you do at college today, dear? Well, I started a company. This kind of thing may be common among technogeeks, but it’s not so common in the arts. Dr. Gary Beckman and his students in the NC State Arts Entrepreneurship Minor are changing that. The idea of wedding entrepreneurship with the arts is a young one, but as old arts funding models collapse and new business models blossom in the 21st century, arts entrepreneurship programs are taking hold. Beckman is one of the leaders in this new academic field. Last year, he co-founded its only academic journal,, and this summer he organized the first national roundtable, bringing together colleagues from across the country to discuss their programs and how to “mushroom” arts entrepreneurship education across the country. This resulted in the world’s first academic society for arts entrepreneurship educators. Beckman has certainly “mushroomed” it at NC State, where he arrived in the fall of 2011, to manifest then Music Department director J. Mark Scearce’s vision of including this kind of education in the music program. Beckman spent a semester designing the minor (it requires 15 credit hours spread over four required courses and an advised elective), but colored way outside the lines, making the minor work for passionate students in all disciplines. “I have students from archeology to zoology,” Beckman says. The minor fits neatly into the campus-wide entrepreneurial ethos, and, he says, it “provides a way for students who really want to be involved in the arts, but who are here for another program.” (Beckman knows something about that: he was a Renaissance German musicologist, but while working on his Ph.D., he realized he probably would not find a job in that micro-discipline – so he set about creating a new field.)

we have freshmen starting businesses! 21-year-olds with patents! our students impact the production of art. They are going to make products so that artists can make better art. And when they want to manufacture something, they want it to stay here. Their dedication to the state is truly remarkable.

The minor’s motto is “find your happy place,” but that doesn’t mean an easy place. Students read aesthetics, “to understand what art may be – and how it is not a refrigerator,” and discuss art’s relationship to the senses. They study the way the arts, both for-profit and non-profit, fit into the larger economic ecology. They produce feasibility studies, which, Beckman says, “help students apply the mechanics to their dream.” And then there are the mechanics, which vary with the dreams. For students like Anne McLean, who makes jewelry and book arts, and wants to start a craft center; or John Miller, a dancer who would like to found a dance company with outreach programs; or Eric Engstrom, who dreams of a non-profit mobile music production studio for disabled musicians, the mechanics of making it so will be quite different from those of students who want to manufacture something of use to a specific art form. For Chayanne Scales, who’s working on a cultural magazine, there is an entirely different set of issues. Beckman gets excited by all of it and says, happily, “there’s a lot of nurturing in this program. My office door is always open.” A capstone experience completes the minor, and gives students the challenge of forming a team to consult with and advise a local non-profit arts organization, expanding their understanding of the difficulties while unleashing their collective creative problem-solving genius. Students in the minor have access to the components of the campuswide Entrepreneurship Initiative, and are encouraged to compete in the eGames, where they may win start-up funding, which can lead to more opportunities. The stories of two very different students, both now seniors who will graduate in May 2014, give a sense of the astounding possibilities. Italo Levia, 25, launched Levia Strings (with two NCSU alum partners) in the summer of 2013. He’s a psychology major from Raleigh who plays guitar, and his experience learning a complicated musical score electrified his entrepreneurial lightbulb. Levia color-coded his score and his guitar strings to match, and now, “we’re trying to change the way people learn music.” His team entered the 2010 eGames and “won every division we entered,” which gave him some start-up funding; he has raised more from family and friends. In doing his patent research, he found someone who’d patented a very similar idea; Levia convinced him to license the patent. He tried mass production of the color-coded strings in China, be couldn’t get the quality control he wanted – so he had some robots built and programmed to paint

them in the corner of a Philadelphia factory. The strings are packaged in North Carolina, and sold locally in music stores and through distributors. Whereas Levia immediately felt comfortable in the role of entrepreneur, 21-year-old English major Suzanne Matthews from Denver, NC, had some fears to overcome. “Had I not taken that class, I would never have known that entrepreneurship was for me. I was going to school for publishing. I never thought I had it in me to be a business woman.” Matthews has registered Soutenu Dancewear as a limited liability corporation, and in July was finalizing her patent application for something she wished she’d had as a dancer: dance tights with ankle support invisibly engineered into the knit. “Soutenu” is a dance term, from the French, meaning “supported or sustained,” and Soutenu tights will help prevent dancer injury and relieve fatigue without restricting range of motion. She won an initial start-up grant in the eGames, and through that competition also was accepted in Durham start-up incubator Groundwork Labs in American Underground, where she was connected to a patent lawyer. To develop her product, she took her design to Fine Line Hosiery in Randleman (“I’m trying to keep it as NC-based as possible,” she noted), and they engineered it through many samples. “It was a collaboration,” says Matthews, “their skills and my knowledge of how it should feel.” As soon as she can stamp it “patent pending,” Fine Line Hosiery will manufacture to her order, and Matthews expects Soutenu Dancewear to hit the shelves before Christmas 2013. As a land grant university, NC State has always been involved with improving individual lives, industries and economies in North Carolina. As a top-tier research university, it has become famous for its scientific and technological expertise, and lauded for its technology transfer programs that get information out where it can make money. With the Arts Entrepreneurship Minor, these streams merge. “These students are leaving college with running businesses,” says Beckman. “We have freshmen starting businesses! 21-year-olds with patents! Our students impact the production of art. They are going to make products so that artists can make better art. And when they want to manufacture something, they want it to stay here. Their dedication to the state is truly remarkable.” Kate Dobbs Ariail has written widely on the arts since 1988. The Five Points Star, her cultural criticism blog, can be found at   19

Each winning creative artist receives a $500 award and acknowledgement in the following year’s ARTS NC STATE playbill. A corresponding grant is given to the appropriate ARTS NC STATE department to assist in producing the selected work(s) in the next academic year.

Curricular Connections Guide The Curricular Connections Guide exists to integrate ARTS NC STATE programming into the university’s curriculum in appropriate and meaningful ways. The Arts Outreach staff produces this comprehensive guide each semester to identify specific course connections with all six ARTS NC STATE visual and performing arts programs. Started in 2004, the Curricular Connections Guide has served as a way for the arts programs to provide specific opportunities to faculty that allow for enhanced learning for their students. Examples of collaboration include

artists leading a discussion or workshop in the classroom, students being welcomed into the Gregg Museum’s permanent collection for a behind the scenes tour, and faculty encouraging students to attend performances or exhibitions for extra credit or writing assignments.

The Arts Village The Arts Village is a Living and Learning Community on campus sponsored by ARTS NC STATE and University Housing. Located in Turlington Residence Hall, the Arts Village is home to 160 students who consider the arts an important part of their lives. The Arts Village has students from every undergraduate college on campus. Living and learning villages provide environments in which students can pursue their academic goals in close partnership with mentors, professors and others who share their same interests. In the Arts Village, students who share a passion for the arts have created a close-knit community of friends who encourage and support each other both academically and artistically. Just about any time of day (or night!), you can walk down the halls of Turlington and hear students running lines together for a play, rehearsing for a music ensemble, or eagerly planning to attend a performance or exhibition together. Contributing to the core arts experience for Arts Village students, ARTS NC STATE faculty and staff design unique educational programs for the students throughout the year. For more information about the Arts Village, contact Sharon Moore at

Student Art Purchase Since 2001, ARTS NC STATE has purchased original artwork of NC State students for permanent display on campus. A committee comprised of faculty, staff, students and local artists review the submitted work and choose the art to be purchased. In the twelve years that the Student Art Purchase has taken place, over 120 pieces of student artwork have been purchased and are on display in the Crafts Center, Student Health Center, Peele Hall, Witherspoon Student Center, and the College of Veterinary Medicine. The Student Art Purchase is open to any currently enrolled, full-time NC State student. 

Pictured above are details from three works purchased during the 2013 Student Art Purchase (L-R): Lady in Red by Sonika Rawal, PhD, Architecture (oil on canvas); Pearl Fryar by Tyler Confrey-Maloney, Junior, Materials Science & Engineering (black & white photography); Freedom by Kristie Kim, Junior, Design Studies (watercolor).
