Center/Gallery: Feminist Legacy, Feminist Future

When: March 20-28 2015

CENTER/GALLERY: FEMINIST LEGACY, FEMINIST FUTURE | FRIDAY, MARCH 20, DURHAM

THE CARRACK MODERN ART—Sometimes a gallery is just a gallery; other times, it's a game-changing hub. The Carrack has emerged as one such multi-use performance and art crucible over the last two years. It connects with a similar space from the Triangle's past in this group show featuring many original members of Center/Gallery, as well as younger artists whom they have mentored. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Center/Gallery was a Chapel Hill/Carrboro-based co-op where member artists such as Barbara Tyroler, Beatrice Schall, Bryant Holsenbeck (whose work is currently on view at Cassilhaus in Chapel Hill), Edie Cohn, Barbara Kazanis, Emily Eve Weinstein and many others showed. Through workshops, lectures, informal gatherings and visits from nationally noted critics, they energized a community, establishing a reputation up and down the East Coast as an important node of multi-generational feminist activity. The night after this opening reception, Kate Dobbs Ariail (a sometime INDY contributor) leads a panel discussion at 4 p.m., and the show runs through March 28. 6 p.m., free, 111 W. Parrish St., Durham, 704-213-6666, www.thecarrack.org. —Chris Vitiello
