Join us as Bart Vargas shares about his artistic practice and exhibition “Multitudes” currently being exhibited at the Turchin Center!
Multitudes is a celebration of Bart Vargas’ use of materials, form, pattern, and color through sculpture and painting. This twenty-year retrospective of Vargas’ work consists of objects and images built from salvaged materials. Many of these award-winning works have been exhibited across the nation and world, graced book covers and publications, but have not previously been exhibited in North Carolina.
