September 9th Reception for New Art Exhibit in Jackson Library


The Friends of the UNCG Libraries are sponsoring a new art exhibit. "Accepting the Often Chaotic Appearance of Trees," created by Greensboro artist Karen Bjork Dischell, will be on display in the Jackson Library Reading Room during the Fall semester. We invite you to join us from 4-6 pm on September 9 for an opening reception.

Bjork Dischell, who works primarily as an oil painter, has a studio at the Lyndon Street Artworks in Greensboro. Originally from Massachusetts, she studied drawing and printmaking at the School of the Worcester Art Museum and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Bjork Dischell’s paintings have appeared in galleries across North Carolina, most recently in a juried show sponsored by the Elder Gallery in Charlotte, “Carolina’s Got Art.” Images of her paintings have appeared as cover art for The Musical Constellations (Unicorn Press, 2007), a book of poetry by UNCG English professor Tom Kirby-Smith, and in the journal Flyway (Iowa State University). She has also created murals and public art, including at the Jones Elementary School in Greensboro. She is a recipient of a 2009 United Arts Council Regional Artists Hub Program Grant.

For more information about the exhibit or reception, please contact Kimberly Lutz at (336) 256-8598 or at kimberly_lutz@uncg.edu.
