Celestial: Dare Coulter

March 4, 2022 – August 27, 2022(This exhibition has passed.)

Mayer Gallery

With the universe as the source of inspiration, the Celestial exhibit is a series of figurative and abstract multimedia works that explore the metaphor of creation. The themes of space, stars and astrology will be cosmically swirled into an exhibit. During a three-week residency Coulter will work with select Appalachian State students to complete the site-specific installation in the Mayer Gallery.
