WILMA W. DANIELS GALLERY (on the campus of CFCC)

Marvin Saltzman Retrospective
(July 5th-September 24th, 2016)

Cape Fear Community College’s Wilma W. Daniels Gallery is pleased to present Marvin Saltzman Retrospective. The exhibition will run from July 5th – September 24th, 2016 with a Fourth Friday Reception on July 22nd from 6-9pm, a second Fourth Friday Reception on August 26th 6-9 pm, and an artist lecture in the gallery on September 8th at 2pm.

Marvin Saltzman was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1931. He attended the University of Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1954 to 1956, and received a B.F.A. and M.F.A. from the University of Southern California in 1959. He taught at multiple universities, including Eastern Oregon State College, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, the University of Southern California, and was a member of the faculty of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 1967 to 1996, where he mentored hundreds of students, many of whom have gone on to have successful artistic careers.

Saltzman has a meticulous painting process: His vibrant landscapes are composed of a multitude of colored glyphs that are first drawn in nature and then painted from memory. Working in a series, he hangs up multiple palettes around his studio, rotating them until the paintings tell him he is finished.

Admission to Marvin Saltzman Retrospective is free and the exhibition is open to the public. Wilma W. Daniels Gallery is located in the Hanover parking deck (200 Hanover Street) on the campus of Cape Fear Community College. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 12-5pm.
