Intersections + Transformations Exhibition Opening

Your Most Lovely Parts

Honored to be among so many truly talented artists in this exhibition. I’ll be showing several new pieces, including a large-format print of the image above. Please join us for the opening reception this Friday the 13th from 6-8pm. I’d love to see you there!

Intersections + Transformations Exhibition Opening

Every year for six years, ANWS has hosted an annual exhibition of visual art that inspires us. In the past, we have explored local emerging artists, the art that inspires local artists we know well, work from emerging artists throughout North Carolina, and most recently in 2016, exciting work by installations artists in North Carolina. This year, we return to work created closer to home featuring local artists some we have featured before and some entirely new to us and, we hope, to you.

Please join us in celebrating the following talented locals at our opening reception on Friday, October 13th. The exhibition will be up through November 7th.

As a participating artist in the Art-o-mat project for over 10 years, I’m excited to be celebrating with Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) as the Art-o-mat® turns 20! Hope to see ya tonight, 4/20/17, from 6:00-8:00 pm. And don’t forget the Art-o-mat swap meet June 10th.

Since 2005, Woodie Anderson has participated in the Art-o-mat® vending machine project. Her ongoing series of Limited Edition Collapsible Fine Art Prints debuted in 2006. The Collapsible Prints current iteration–printed on reclaimed fabrics and playfully titled HankiePankie–has been delighting collectors of pocket-sized art since 2008. Learn more >

Goings On: March edition

Sanctuary and Safekeeping reception
Tina and I peek out from inside my installation, “If the place we need does not exist, we will make it”, now showing at the Davis Gallery in downtown Winson-Salem.

A REMINDER: The Sanctuary and Safekeeping exhibit is on display until March 17th. The show includes an interactive “studio” area where the artists share pieces of our artistic processes with touchable in-progress art and tools. It’s been described as “suggesting a puppet-maker’s workshop and a partially dismantled carnival”, which sounds fun, right? I know my brain feels like both of those things when I’m making art.

Fight Series HankiePankie art hankie

SAVE THE DATE: Last week I dropped of a fresh delivery of HankiePankie Art Hankies to AIC headquarters. This year marks the Art*O*Mat®’s 20th year, and I’ve been participating in the project for over 10 of those years. June 10th, SECCA will  be hosting a swap meet to celebrate the anniversary. I’ve been to two previous swaps and they are always good fun, with artists trading pieces and stories, and art collectors young and old excited to meet Art*O*Mat artists and learn more about the project.

WORKSHOP DATES: This Spring I’m teaching a workshop Saturday, April 29th at The Sawtooth School. These classes are always a lot of fun as we explore the printing process together. Sign up if you’d like to learn more about screen printing! No experience necessary.
