Artwork on exhibit at Kirby galleries


The Kirby Cultural Arts Complex has two exhibitions currently underway for the month of February. In the Kirby Gallery, NCCU student work will be on display. In the Upper Gallery, Shannon Fitzgerald is showing a collection of paintings entitled Abundant Joy.

The works in this show are an overview of the foundation and concentration areas that students are currently working in. Drawing, 3-D Design, Computer Graphics, Painting, Printmaking, Ceramics and Sculpture make of the core of art department.

This exhibition includes work by freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors. Many of the NCCU students go on to successful careers and become active participants in their communities.

Shannon Moore Fitzgerald is a creative explorer and entrepreneur. She loves creating high vibrational intuitive paintings, creating unique original mixed media artwork, writing and illustrating children’s books and making light and emotion filled photographs. As a former elementary school teacher and child care provider she enjoys visiting schools and groups to share her books as well as her passion for writing and creating. Her creations, which bubble up from deep within, reflect her love of the natural world, her life experiences and her willingness to embrace a little magic in her life. Fitzgerald’s hope is that her paintings, books and photographs connect to viewers and readers on an energetic level. Her studio is in Hillsborough.

Both exhibitions run through the month of February, and can be viewed by visiting the Kirby Cultural Arts Complex, 213 N. Main St., Roxboro, during gallery hours: Tuesday-Friday 1-5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. All works on exhibit are for sale.
