|The Penetrating Gaze|
If looks can kill, then the images in this exhibition need to come with a warning. As windows to the soul, the eyes tell it all. Fitting then that the artworks in this exhibition, many of which are self-portraits, show figures with intense expressions. Their penetrating gazes trigger an exchange or mental interaction between the viewer and subject. All this intensity, however, does not necessarily signal mental imbalance, but rather reflects the potency of the sitters’ emotions. Gaze...

|Head to Head|
The human head is the nexus of thought, emotion, and expression. Four of our five senses are located there. The importance of human head—regardless of size and shape—visually links the great variety of artworks in this exhibition, which range in date from 1907 ("Tete d’enfant" by Henri Matisse) to 1995 ("Trophy Head" by John Ahearn).
A number of the pieces are portraits of specific individuals and they present some interesting artistic linkages....

|Arlene Shechet: That Time|
This exhibition of sculptures by Arlene Shechet offers an up-to-the-minute look at her iconoclastic approach to ceramics. Shechet favors improvisational methods and a trial-and-error process over methodical and technical facility. At once comically awkward and elegantly poised, her paradoxical forms teeter, lean, bulge, torque, and reach in multiple directions at once, defying their own weight. Shechet’s latest works combine a cartoonish demeanor with painterly effects. She constantly...

|Annie Lapin: Falk Visiting Artist|
Los Angeles-based artist Annie Lapin draws much of her inspiration from her personal memory of historical works of art. Working from her imagination, Lapin builds up her images in layers, allowing them to develop over time. The resulting works are highly evocative impressions that capture the emotional experience of encountering some historical paintings. Her exhibition at the Weatherspoon will include recent and new works that evoke landscape and figuration yet remain open-ended and...

|Jiha Moon: Falk Visiting Artist|
In her fantastical, hybrid works, Atlanta-based and Korean-born Jiha Moon combines traditional Asian landscape-painting techniques with American Modern and Pop Art influences. Composed with flowing, gestural brushstrokes, and an array of iconic references (emoticons, Lucky Cats, lotus blossoms, scrolls), Moon’s imaginative mash-ups offer an intense experience. Her colorful compositions blur the lines between East and West to speak to the cultural pluralism of contemporary society.
