Reckoning and Resilience:
North Carolina Art Now
January 13 – July 10, 2022
Join us within Reckoning and Resilience: North Carolina Art Now for a talk by Stephen L. Hayes, whose work is on view.
From the artist’s bio: Stephen L. Hayes, Jr., makes art—woodcuts, sculptures, installations small and large—from found materials that draw on social and economic themes ingrained in the history of America and African-Americans. His approach is simple: “If I can’t find it, I’ll make it. If I can’t make it, I’ll find it.”
Hayes, a Durham-born artist, is an Assistant Professor of the Practice of Art, Art History and Visual Studies at Duke University. He was the 2020 recipient of the 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art from the Gibbes Museum of Art (Charleston, SC). His work has been featured at the National Cathedral, Winston-Salem State University, Nasher Museum, CAM Raleigh, Cameron Art Museum, Rosa Parks Museum, African American Museum of Philadelphia, and the Harvey B. Gantt Center, among others. Hayes attended North Carolina Central University and received an MFA in sculpture from Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta, Georgia.
