Reception and Exhibit Honors Artists
THOMASVILLE, N.C. … Davidson County Community’s spring art show “Absolutely Art” opens on January 26 with a reception from 4-6 p.m. in the B. E. Mendenhall Building on the Davidson Campus. The event is open to the public.
Works of art from nine artists representing a wide range of media will be shown.
Annette Bartlett-Golden of Greensboro: Bartlett-Golden displays paintings in oils and watercolors that are inspired by the natural world including animals, florals, portraits and landscapes. She utilizes bright colors and crisp lines to bring a freshness to her work.
Lori Ball of Lexington: Ball, a photographer, shows work that has a painterly effect. The photographs are mounted on birch wood boards and have a brushed paint-like surface.
Diana Bowman of Greensboro: Bowman displays watercolors that depict the light patterns on surfaces and brings the interesting structure of objects into view. Her choice of medium is watercolor for its challenges and surprises.
Owens Daniels of Winston-Salem: Daniels’ photography display illustrates ballet and modern and contemporary dance styles. The beauty and art of dance, and the human form, are captured in the poses of the dancers and their gestures.
Amy Funderburk of Winston-Salem: Funderburk is a visionary artist specializing in oils, pastels and photography. She exhibits sacred and folkloric landscape photography of England, Scotland and Ireland. She also displays ash and charcoal drawings using burnt limbs and wishes from her Wishing Tree installation.
Don Green of Winston-Salem: Green exhibits his sculptures in wood, stone and steel with an emphasis on nature and forms derived from plants, rocks and land formations.
Randy McNamara of Hampstead: McNamara works with mixed media, building up and breaking down images, and creates artistic meaning as a sensation rather than a thought. His work is extremely tactile, as paper is pealed away and rubbed down.
Richard McWilliams of Oakwood, Ohio: McWilliams uses light, shadow and color to portray a sense of humanity, and concentrates on the face and figure to communicate a personal narrative in his oil and acrylic works.
Joyce Metters of Lexington: Metters displays her impressionistic oil paintings that capture the beauty, peacefulness and excitement of our natural world. The colors, intensity and values are all part of the passion of the painterly method.
The “Absolutely Art” exhibit runs through May 13 and is open for public viewing during the college’s regular hours of operation.
