The latest exhibition in this long-standing showcase for outstanding regional contemporary art focuses on intriguing three-dimensional art of this emerging North Carolina artist. Farnsworth’s hand-carved figurative sculptures encapsulate the artist’s interests in character, story, craft, mechanics, composition, empathy, and social commentary. The artist sees his work as far more than sculpture – he fills his roles of architect, storyteller, cinematographer to construct detailed, immersive experiences that lead the viewer deep into a visual narrative. As he puts it, “I create lush, emotionally charged rabbit holes to fall into and explore.”

During World War I, illustrated posters inspiring public support served as a primary mechanism of mass communication. Designed to rally Americans to the cause, these persuasive visual symbols employed bold graphics, strong imagery, and concise commands to inspire a sense of nationalism and pride. Imbued with iconic symbols like the Statue of Liberty, Uncle Sam, and the American flag, posters were installed throughout the country as prominent reminders of the need for support. Over the Top includes 44 original posters created by major American illustrators including J.C. Leyendecker, James Montegomery Flagg, and Howard Chandler Christy. The exhibition offers compelling perspectives on the American experience during this dramatic time in our nation’s history. Organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, MA.

The Pinta and the Nina, replicas of Columbus’ ships, will be docked at Ditto Landing for self-guided tours. The Nina was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools. Archaeology magazine called the ship “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.” The Pinta, also a caravel, was the first ship to site land in the New World. Historians consider the caravel the Space Shuttle of the fifteenth century.
Both ships tour together as a new and enhanced ‘sailing museum’ for the purpose of educating the public and school children on the caravel, a Portuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers to discover the world.
