Adrian Schlesinger curated and coordinated two art shows before she graduated from UNC in May.
Her third show, held last week at Carrack Modern Art Gallery in Durham, benefited Church World Service — an organization that partners with religious groups to serve refugee and immigrant communities.
The show, “Home is in You,” featured artwork from recent UNC graduates Laura Melosh and Katie Frohbose. Wilmington-based artist Wendy Kowalski provided paintings from her new collection for the show as well.
Schlesinger said her former UNC communications professor Nadia Dawisha, who now works for Church World Service, asked her to organize the benefit show.
“It turns out June is International Refugee Awareness Month, so I think that scheduling the show now brings more awareness,” Schlesinger said at the opening reception on last week.
