The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh will be exhibiting work from the Fifth Annual Art Gala, the N.C. Central University Foundation's largest scholarship fundraiser, on Wednesday, Aug. 29 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exhibition will include as many as 225 pieces, and 35 to 40 of the featured artists' works will be for sale. The black-tie gala, which includes a silent auction, is scheduled for the following day, Thursday, Aug. 30. This year, the featured artists include Ernest Crichlow and Lester Gunter. The 87-year-old Crichlow began his career in the 1930s in New York, where he still lives. A product of the Harlem Renaissance, his work reflects the themes of race, politics and urban life. Jamaican-born Gunter, who also lives in New York, is a colorist whose work tends toward impressionism. He has studied with renowned artists such as Barrington Watson, Robert Sawyer and Jacob Lawrence. Call 530-7398 for more information about the exhibition and gala.
