Since its opening in 2010, the David McCune International Art Gallery has been Fayetteville’s premier art venue, where works from traveling exhibitions, fine art on loan from museum collections throughout the world, and works by Methodist University students are displayed. Recent shows at the gallery attracted significant crowds and media attention. The gallery’s most recent exhibit was “gallery goes POP: Warhol,” which featured 34 silkscreened images by the artist Andy Warhol. Warhol’s silkscreened prints give us a range and variety of the American artist’s unique body from his Myths Series, Cowboys and Indians Series, Ads Series, and the Art and Sports Series, to include several icon portraits and the Moonwalk Suite.
Among the gallery’s other most successful exhibitions include lithographs of “The Story of the Exodus” by Marc Chagall; bronze sculptures of “Rodin: Portraits of a Lifetime, Selections from the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Collections;” “Picasso: 25 Years of Edition Ceramics from the Rosenbaum Collection;” and “Igneous Expressions,” a collection of glass art by 26 artists from western North Carolina that included work by Harvey Littleton.
The David McCune International Art Gallery is privileged to present exhibitions such as these that catalyze and channel a surging interest in the visual arts and provide visitors to the Methodist University campus an artistic experience that only the world’s best galleries can offer.
