Close to Home: A Decade of Acquisitions @ NCMA


North Carolina Gallery at The North Carolina Museum of Art

As the preeminent art institution of North Carolina, the NCMA is firmly committed to presenting and promoting the work of artists from our state. The frequent temporary exhibitions in the North Carolina Gallery are a testament to their ongoing goal of providing visitors with a broad view of the variety of work created by North Carolina artists and residents. 


As part of this commitment, the NCMA has amassed a collection of nearly 650 works by North Carolina artists in many mediums. Close to Home: A Decade of Acquisitions includes paintings, photographs, sculptures, and mixed-media works acquired by the Museum in the last 10 years. The exhibition features work by well-known favorites such as Bob Trotman, Beverly McIver, and George Bireline alongside brand-new works on view for the first time by artists such as Linda Foard Roberts, John Rosenthal, Peter Glenn Oakley, and Anne Lemanski.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
