Accumulation opens July 17 in the Cameron Gallery

The Cameron Gallery presents Accumulation, a collection of ceramic and mixed media sculptures by Durham artist Jeffery Zern. Zern’s ceramic figures feature heavily textured faces, melancholy expressions, and elongated heads and necks. These fantastical figures are accompanied by found objects such as cameras, flags, glasses, and stools. In this way Zern’s sculptures both occupy and transcend our world, seeming to exist simultaneously in the corporeal world and an imaginary realm.

Accumulation runs from July 17-August 15. An opening reception will be held on Friday, July 17 from 6-9PM. The evening’s festivities include light snacks and drinks, a performance by the Durham based band Mantle, as well as free art making in the Make and Take room. This event is free and the public is warmly welcomed. Third Friday at the Cameron Gallery is sponsored by the Durham Co-op Market.

The Cameron Gallery is located inside The Scrap Exchange creative reuse arts center at 2050 Chapel Hill Rd. in Durham. For more information, call The Scrap Exchange at 919-688-6960.
