Opening Friday: Flags of Our Mothers Solo Exhibit at Salem College

Anderson Flyer - FLAGS OF OUR MOTHERS

I’m excited to be showing a selection of recent work, including three new larger-format pieces, at the Elberson Fine Arts Center of Salem Academy and College, Winston-Salem, NC. I will be at a reception opening this Friday, April 3 from 6 – 8 pm. The show will be on display through April 27th and there will be a Salem Art Faculty exhibit on display as well, which promises to be wonderful.

The Salem campus is lovely, especially this time of year, so please stop by and check out the show if you are in the area this April. More Info and some installation photos below. I hope to see you on Friday!

This is a great space for my larger banners to hang, and all the natural light is wonderful.

Flags of Our Mothers: Prints on paper and fabrics by Woodie Anderson
Elberson Fine Arts Center, North Corridor Gallery
Exhibition Dates: April 3 – 27, 2015
Reception Date: Friday, April 3, 6 – 8 pm

Working in printmaking, drawing, sculpture and written word, Woodie Anderson uses a variety of media to explore the areas where identity, personal history and society intersect. Her serigraphs and three-dimensional fiber works have been described as focused, smart and playful. Often starting with well-worn household fabrics such as bedsheets, curtains, and knotted laces and using screen-printing techniques in non-traditional fashions, Anderson employs a variety of processes including stitching, dyeing and hand drawing to build layered, textural pieces full of life. The use of text and layered letterforms are common elements in her work as well, including found and original writings. Anderson’s Flags of Our Mothers explore how we invent our own mythologies and rules in our quest for personal freedom and authentic expression. What rules are we judged by and how do we choose to flaunt or fight them?
