Durham area painter Maria Bennett Hock has recently completed what she believes to be her magnum opus — “the most important, impactful and historic”— piece of art that she has conceptualized in her past ten years as an artist. Titled “45 Portraits in 45 Days,” Hock’s exhibit features the portraits of Duke Hospital essential healthcare workers who have sacrificed so much in pursuit of caring for those afflicted by COVID-19.

(08/11/20 4:00am)

Is freedom from perfectionism the only way to satisfaction? Debut author Cynthia Salaysay answers this and more in her jarring novel “Private Lessons.” With all the polish of a literary and the emotion of a classical musician, Salaysay weaves together a story so beautifully vulnerable it aches. She makes a day in the life of a high school Filipina pianist a portal into one of humanity’s greatest issues —  the breaching of consent in the context of complicated power dynamics.
