Unity with Diversity
September 9 – October 1, 2015
The Blue Ridge Women Artists group consists of five women who live and work in the Western NC region. From the literal and historical to the whimsical and very serious, life’s experiences and observations are recorded in works by these artists in the Community Gallery. Exhibiting artists include Beth Andrews, Marion Cloaninger, Marsha Holmes, Susan Marlowe, and Norma Suddreth. Works are for sale by the artists.
Black & White and Art All Over
October 7 – 31, 2015
A group exhibition featuring works from seven local High Country artists: Theresa Early Curd – fabric art, quilting; Ellie Lyne – pen and ink; Kat Leahey – mixed media; Priscilla Popper – photography; Linda Dease Smith – fabric art, mixed media; Annie Stone – fabric art,mixed media; and LaMae Strange – oil.
The challenge of this exhibit was to interpret through the absence of color, various emotions based on the individual backgrounds and experiences of the group. The pieces, represented by several media along with a limited palette, result in an eclectic yet cohesive and dynamic presentation.
The exhibit has been traveling since February 2014 showing in galleries in West Jefferson and Macon, Georgia.
“Black & White and Art All Over” will run thru October. The artists will be present at the opening reception on the first night October 7th from 5:00 – 6:30. Beverages and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
