"Art of the State gathers and presents the fertile cultural wellspring of artists, the communities they thrive in, and the diversity of support and philanthropy that broadens visibility and ensures access to citizens across our state. Liza Roberts offers an inspiring historical account of the evolution of art in North Carolina. Poignant text and captivating images illustrate the magnificence of artists creating and preserving perspectives beyond form and craft."—Jaki Shelton Green, Poet Laureate of North Carolina
“Visual art in North Carolina has long needed a map of its beautiful constellations—the people, the mediums, the long, deep history. Liza Roberts traces the humility and world-class production growing across the state, as well as the secret history of just how good it is to create work and life in North Carolina.”—Tift Merritt, singer and musician
"An impressive overview of contemporary art in North Carolina, written by one of its most passionate supporters. This is an excellent comprehensive resource for readers who are perhaps not aware of the vast and diverse artistic talent in our state."—Zoe Starling, NC State University's Gregg Museum of Art & Design
