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.

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.

Camino Show Opening and Other August Events

new mask prints by Woodie Anderson

My exhibit at Camino Bakery in the heart of downtown Winston is now up and Camino is graciously hosting a Meet The Artist from 6-7 pm, pre-gallery hop this Friday, August 7th. There will be free, delicious mini-cupcakes (mocha with coffee icing and lemon with coconut icing, oh my!) to tempt you.

I created four new prints specifically for this exhibit and all eight mask prints in my Animal Mask/Quote series will be on display as well as available for purchase–for just $25 a piece, what a deal! Returning to this series has been a lot of fun and I’m contemplating continuing the theme, so stop by, say hi and give me your suggestions for which animals I should tackle next.

Smalltown Gallery, Elkin NCMeanwhile, up the mountain a bit: Elkin will also be celebrating their gallery hop this Friday. If you’re in the area, stop by and check out the Human/Nature exhibit at Smalltown Gallery, which includes three new larger-scale fabric prints of mine, as well as lovely work from Tory Casey, Robin Mangum and Tammy Sawyer.

Smalltown Gallery, Elkin NCI had such a wonderful time with these folks last week at the opening reception, the exhibit is lovely and the space is beautiful. Plus, there’s a delicious pizza place at the other end of the main Elkin drag and I can highly recommend the mushroom pizza with truffle oil, if you’re feeling peckish.

Here’s a bit more info about the Elkin gallery hop and a handy map:elkin-gallerys gallery crawl map
Join us this Friday August 7th from 6-9 pm for the Elkin Gallery Crawl. Start out at the Foothills Arts Council at 6 for “Roots & Reflections” then from 7-9 check out “Human/Nature” at Smalltown Gallery & “Overflow” at the Elkin Artisan Market. In the lot next to the EAM you’ll find local art vendors and food by Heaven Scent. Wine of course will be available at all stops.

And remember: if you are in High Point this month, my solo exhibit at TAG, Stitched, Stuttered and Screened, is on view through August 21, 2015.

Classes this month: I’m teaching a 1-day screen printing workshop at Sawtooth on Saturday, August 22. We’ll be exploring several screenwriting methods and you’ll leave the class with at least three prints of your very own work. It’s a lot of messy, good fun and we’d love to have you play with us so sign up today!

I hope you all have a beautiful August. Let’s enjoy these last few days of summer as much as we can! I’ll be working on the basement studio construction and possibly designing a t-shirt for Camino’s artist series this month. Lots of fun things on my to-do list, it’s shaping up to be a lovely month.
