Reception for Laboray exhibit Feb. 16 at WCU

Work by Ron Laboray, assistant professor of painting and drawing in the School of Art and Design at Western Carolina University, will be on exhibit through Friday, March 30, at the WCU Fine Art Museum.

An interview with Laboray will begin at 4 p.m., Feb. 16, at the museum followed by a reception for the exhibit at 5 p.m. The event is free, and the public is invited.

“Surveying Imagination Land: Ron Laboray” offers an archeological perspective of art, with subjects taken from pop culture past and present. Laboray’s subjects stem from similar types of material, such as pop culture, junk mail and spectacle.

“It’s a great opportunity for students and local residents to experience artwork that truly brings something new to the table,” said Denise Drury, interim director of the WCU Fine Art Museum.

The WCU Fine Art Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday (and until 7 p.m. Thursdays). Admission and parking are free.
