Chris Hondros – Conflict photography

An NC State alumnus, photographer Chris Hondros was killed in 2011 while working in Libya, along with film director Tim Hetherington. Before his death Hondros had arranged for Getty Images to gift the Gregg a selection of his award-winning photos, many of which will be on display in this exhibition. “Hondros,” a documentary of the life and legacy of this talented war photojournalist, directed by Greg Campbell, is available on Netflix.

 

Will Henry Stevens – Pastels and drawings

Stevens (1881 – 1949) was an American modernist and impressionist painter and naturalist. He is best known for his paintings and tonal pastels of the rural Southern landscape, abstractions of nature, and non-objective works, created while he summered in Asheville, NC. Using pastels of his own making, he was influenced by, among others, the impressionistic paintings of the Sung Dynasty, the poetry of Walt Whitman, and modernists Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee.
