Grigsby1a

The Stone Center Library is proud to host an exhibit of selected works of J. Eugene Grigsby Jr. beginning on April 1, 2015 and running through June 30, 2015. A native of North Carolina, Grigsby was born in Greensboro, NC in 1918 and was an artist, an art educator and a scholar. He was also a contemporary of several noted 20th century artists including Jacob Lawrence and Romare Bearden.

The 14 paintings that will be on display are part of an exhibit developed by Dr. Marshall Grigsby, son of the artist, for the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts and Culture in Charlotte, North Carolina.

An opening reception will take place at the Stone Center Library (3rd floor of the Stone Center) on April 1 at 5 pm. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. For event information, contact Liza Terll, Friends of the Library, liza_terll@unc.edu, (919) 548-1203.
