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.

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.

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.

Now installing: Sanctuary and Safekeeping

Today we started installing Sanctuary and Safekeeping, part 3 in my ongoing collaboration with artists Nicole Uzzell and Millicent Greason. Together we chose this topic to explore over a year ago and worked in our different mediums to expand on what environments and experiences make us feel safe and fed our souls.

If you follow me on Instagram  you’ve seen parts and pieces of this exploration through the past year, and now I’m really excited and energized to see how our individual visions are coming together and creating a dialog of artwork around this subject in the gallery.

I hope you will visit this exhibit in the coming months and add your thoughts to the ongoing conversation. It’s one of particular importance as we face the challenges in this new year. More info about the exhibit and opening reception after the jump.

Happy Holidays, my friends.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

 Wishing you all safety and peace and days full of loving joy this season.  

Thanks to everyone who supported local crafts folk and artists this season. It really means a lot. I could go on about that, but I won’t. 🙂 This season is busy for all of us, I know, and I hope you all find time to nurture your hearts and souls with art, music, loved ones, and whatever else keeps the spark in your heart.

I’m looking forward to starting the new year with a creative whirlwind as I wrap up work for my collaborative show Sanctuary and Safekeeping (opening Thursday, January 19th). I’ll share more about this exhibit in the coming weeks, though I can say that even though the topic we are all working with for this show was chosen a year ago, I feel its power very much in these final weeks as the pieces for the show come together at last.

In other upcoming events, I will be teaching another screen printing workshop at the Sawtooth Center in early February, so sign up now to start off your 2017 with a little messy fun. I’d love to see you there.

Meanwhile, take care of each other. Happy holidays.
