Four Decades - A Retrospective Show of the Work of Roy Nydorf
Roy Nydorf is an award-winning Triad artist. Based in Oak Ridge, the Guilford College professor of art has exhibited nationally and internationally, with works in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art among many others. In May of 2012, the Green Hill Center for North Carolina Art presented an exhibit titled Four Decades. It was the first major survey Roy’s work, including drawings, prints, paintings and sculpture.
Roy spoke with David just ahead of his 2012 retrospective show at the Green Hill Center for North Carolina Art in Greensboro. A 36-page color catalogue of the exhibit Roy Nydorf: Four Decades is available for sale. Last September, Roy became one of only five North Carolina artists to exhibit at “American Art Today: Figures,” a national competition at the Bascom Center for The Visual Arts in Highlands, N.C. Charlotte’s Mint Museum of Art selected 64 out of 550 entries for the exhibit, including Roy’s “Root Man.”
