Robert Dunning and Margaret Noel Art Opening 

When: Fri., Dec. 19 2014



DURHAM ARTS COUNCILDrop by the Durham Arts Council this Third Friday to catch a pair of interesting shows. In the first-floor Allenton Gallery, you'll find mixed-media prints by Robert Dunning, while upstairs in the Semans gallery is Copper: Industrial Landscapes, an exhibit of copperpoint and encaustic work by Margaret Noel. Dunning, an art professor at UNC-Asheville, combines painting, drawing and other media with printmaking, resulting in delicately distressed images with a sharp sense of visual design, such as an elephant that appears to be made of carved teak trumpeting on a mottled grid. Meanwhile, Noel, who teaches drawing at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, makes the mining industry's effect on landscapes her subject. This exhibit focuses on Butte, Montana, which used to be a major copper-mining center. Noel works on-site to render derelict industry and blighted geography in harsh geometric configurations, aptly working in copperpoint, an old technique where prepared paper is gouged with a metal stylus, with elements of encaustic and collage in highly tactile-looking works. 5–7 p.m., free, 120 Morris St., 919-560-2711, —Brian Howe
