Join Durham artist Martha Clippinger, who earned an MFA from Mason Gross School of Art, Rutgers University, for a 30-minute lunchtime gallery tour within “Solidary & Solitary.” Clippinger was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including a 2013 Fulbright-Garcia Robles research grant completed in Oaxaca, Mexico. Free with admission.

“Clippinger is a wonderfully democratic artist who, like Cordy Ryman, makes art out of discarded pieces of wood without fetishizing her materials. Her use of hothouse colors and repeated geometric shapes adds a further zing to her work. The sources of her wall pieces range from game boards to Mexican and Southern folk art, which she reconfigures through a sensibility informed by a love of carnival colors and a passion for the geometric abstraction, going all the way back to the Bauhaus.” —
