“Home is in You” explores conceptual and aesthetic representations of refuge, home and fantasy in light of internal refugee awareness month. The show features a collection of new works by Wilmington-based painter, Wendy Kowalski, as well individual works by local artists.
I have one pinhole photo in the show, “Phil’s Living Room Furniture”, taken around 1973.
Join us for a public reception during Third Friday Durham on June 15, 2012 from 7-10 pm.
The Carrack Modern Art
111 West Parrish Street
“Home is in You” can also be viewed at the Carrack on Saturday and Sunday from 2-5 pm.
“Home is in You” is curated by Adrian Schlesinger. The exhibit focuses on the home that we create within our imaginations when we have little or no control over the external circumstances in our lives.
Participating artists will donate a portion of the proceeds of art sales to Church World Service, a non-profit agency in Durham that supports refugees in the Triangle.
The Carrack Modern Art is located at 111 West Parrish Street in downtown Durham (above LOAF Bakery). Our hours are 12:00 – 6:00 Tuesday – Friday, 2:00 – 5:00 Saturday and by appointment.

Congrats again Gregg! Was the guy Phil Trumbo?I may have forgotten what he looked like! Is the furniture cardboard? It took me back—
Yes, Phil Trumbo on the rooftop off from his apartment window. This was around 1973.
Yes, The furniture in the photo IS made of cardboard. These were props that Phil made for one of his films. They were painted black and white. During the long exposure of the photo, the white areas burned into the photo, but the black areas did not. I removed the props about half way through the exposure and the scene behind the props burned in, especially the scenes behind the black painted areas of the props.
