Within the Division of Health Sciences, there are many faculty, staff and students who create art as an avocation while pursing demanding careers in the health sciences. The opportunity to view such creativity can open new windows of appreciation for our colleagues and challenge our understanding of our own humanity.
On January 31, 2012, Laupus Library began a new exhibit series in the Evelyn Fike Laupus Gallery entitled “Art as Avocation.” The series showcases and celebrates the artistic talents and self expression of faculty, staff and students from the Division of Health Sciences by highlighting artists’ works in a gallery exhibit displayed for six to eight weeks.
Dr. Lou Everett, Professor Emeritus from the College of Nursing, presents the first exhibit in the new series. Entitled, “Humble Beginnings,” Lou expands upon works created in honor of the 50th anniversary of the College of Nursing with watercolor impressions of eastern North Carolina and the Division of Health Sciences. The exhibit will be displayed through March 27, 2012.
