Art Together Now
BY MEGAN TILLOTSON | PHOTOGRAPHY BY J CALDWELL, NASHER MUSEUM
The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University (one of our readers’ favorite museums and art galleries in the 2022 Best of Durham poll!) celebrated the 30 artists in its “Reckoning and Resilience: North Carolina Art Now” exhibition, which features more than 100 works of contemporary art in media ranging from traditional paintings, drawings and sculptures, to ceramics, textiles, performance art, experimental video and more. Visitors to the event made their own art inside the museum, enjoyed Wonderpuff cotton candy, and danced to the tunes provided by 9th Wonder and DJ Khrysis in the museum’s Sculpture Garden. The works by Durham-based artists such as Kennedi Carter, Julia Gartrell, Stephen Hayes, Meg Stein, Cornell Watson and Saba Taj, among others, will be on display through July 10.
