People’s Biennial & NC Art Blog

April 5, 2010

SECCA is one month into its cross-state, high & low, far & wide search for creative talents to participate in the nationally touring exhibition/campaign titled People’s Biennial. For what we’ve seen thus far, and what we hope to see before the submission deadline on April 30, I thought it was high time to file a field report.

You can find it on the newly launched NC ArtBlog (please follow link to the site). This state-wide source for news and reviews on exhibitions and projects in North Carolina is the brainchild of intrepid writer and architect Dave Delcambre. In his words, “nc artblog was established to disseminate information about contemporary visual art in North Carolina through exhibition reviews, essays and interviews, shorter critical pieces and assorted additional online media. The intent is to broaden exposure for visual art in the region while instigating thoughtful online dialogue.” I’m happy to be included as one of the contributors to the site, and I encourage you to visit often to add your comments, interpretations and feedback. Dave is currently traveling to all corners of the state, and filing new reports every week.

This field report on the People’s Biennial is the first of many I will be filing as we continue the process of finding and celebrating North Carolina’s most fascinating, yet unheralded creative talents. Please help spread the word, and join us in May when the guest curators arrive to meet the people.
