With eloquent line drawings and an exacting system of colored marks, artist Danica Phelps records the ordinary moments of her daily life and the monetary transactions that sustain it. In her newest work, she connects her visual journal to the lives of others. In late October, Phelps turned her Facebook page into an auction site for her drawings, with the proceeds going to not-for-profit organizations. The records of these philanthropic transactions will debut at the Weatherspoon. The artist welcomes visitors and bidders as the project unfolds here. Phelps is a participant in the Falk Visiting Art program, a collaboration between the UNCG School of Art and the Weatherspoon that provides for meaningful engagement between students and artists.
