StarNews Online recently announced the opening of “We Wept at the Sea,” a solo art exhibition by Washington D.C.-based artist J. Coleman. The tragic 1816 wreck of the French frigate Méduse, immortalized by Théodore Géricault’s iconic “The Raft of the Medusa,” inspired Coleman’s paintings and sculptures. But he also drew from an eclectic mix of literary and musical influences, including Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Yukio Mishima, Pearl Jam, Broken Social Scene, and The Pixies. “We Wept at the Sea” opened Friday, July 22 and runs through August 14th at Projekte Gallery in Wilmington, North Carolina.
