New ASC exhibition “PAUSE. People, Places and Scenes” features paintings by Carl E. Moore.
Moore’s paintings depict people living in their community, living their life and in their space, as black Americans living in a PAUSED position waiting. Waiting for the next headline or event to happen. Waiting for the next justified police shooting, or the next unexplained act of violence. His artwork acts as a collective group of people living in one community, but at the same time, these could be people anywhere. The work moves from simple day-to-day activities to sometimes intense and unpredictable situations, where people PAUSE for the outcome.

“Pause” is on view in the William H. Kennedy Jr. Gallery inside ASC’s main building at 701 S. Main St. through Saturday, April 30, 2022. Enjoy an Inside the Arts studio interview with Moore at

ASC will host a joint reception featuring artists Moore and Meikel Church from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 3, 2022.

The exhibition is sponsored by Relyance Bank. Inside the Arts is supported in part by the Harold S. Seabrook Charitable Trust.
