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!
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.
Annie Grimes Williams (Jewelry) Katie Chasteen (Photography) Sean McNamara (Digital Art) Jessica Singerman (Painting) Ricky Needham (Painting) Rose Jerome (Photography) Travis Phillips (Installation and Video) Woodie Anderson (Painting)
This Friday, Millicent, Nicole and I will be giving an informal talk and tour of our current exhibit, Sanctuary and Safekeeping, at Sawtooth School for Visual Art. Come by and hear a little more about our collaboration and our personal art processes before the WSNC Art Hop.
Artist Discussion and Guided Exhibit Tour: Friday, February 3rd, 5:30pm – 7pm
Please join artists Nicole Uzzell, Millicent Greason and Woodie Anderson for an informal artist talk on their current collaborative exhibit, “Amalgamated Transmutations: Sanctuary and Safekeeping,” now showing in the Davis Gallery. The artists will discuss their artistic processes and share how they each explored themes of safety and belonging in this very interactive exhibition.
Admission is free. For information, visit www.sawtooth.org or call (336) 723-7395.
The exhibit runs through March 17.
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, everyone! I’ll be at Krankies Craft Fair 2016 this Saturday with various artworks and handprinted goods.This is one of my favorite events of the season, always packed with lots of clever and creative gifts for all your loved ones. Join us for a fun filled festive day! There will be food trucks, a coloring room, and over 60 vendors with something for everyone on your holiday shopping list.
OK y’all! There are still a few slots open for my screen printing workshop this Saturday if you’re looking for a cozy way to spend a rainy Saturday in W-S. The class is this Saturday, 05/21, from 10:00 AM – 03:30 PM. We’ll be covering printing techniques including painting with screen blockers (like the image above), and if we have some extra time we’ll do a paper-cut print or two. It’s always a messy-good time, so come on down if you’d like to play with us.
The next Sawtooth Workshop after this is Friday 09/30/16, and you can sign up for it now if you’re a plan-ahead type like me.
I’ve just wrapped up a big illustration project that will be coming out in early June, I believe. This one’s for Wake Forest Magazine. Very excited about it. If you follow me on instagram, you’ve seen some sneak peeks.
Still working on storage and organization in the new studio space (putting the finishing touches on some custom-built under-stairs storage-yass!) and updating my design and artwork websites in an attempt to move beyond the current shoeless-cobblers-children scenario (it plagues us all, doesn’t it?).
Also sketching Art*O*Mat“Hankie Pankie” limited edition Collapsible Fine Art Prints for a new Things That Make Me Cry series, coming soon. (Wow, I just found this amazing photo on the Baltimore Sun when I googled to find some of my flickr pics of Hankies to share.) Stay tuned for some work-in-progress hankies drawings!
Studio clean-up / move-in benefits continue! I discovered a stash of HankiePankies I’d tucked away in the archives that I didn’t need to keep, so they’re ready to find forever homes. All boxed up and delivered to Art-O-Mat HQ along with a new print series from Art-o-Artist Robin Anderson (AKA my mom).
