Forged Landscapes Opening Reception

Thanks to all of you who joined us for the Opening Reception for FORGED LANDSCAPES last Thursday night. Your presence is always appreciated.

This show will be on view in Ross Gallery through 11/14. To learn more about these two artists, Sharon Dowell and Ahmad Sabha, please consider attending one of their artist lectures:

Sharon Dowell: 10/24 in Ross Gallery at noon

Ahmad Sabha: 10/29 in AU 011 at noon (CPCC Central Campus on 4th Street)


FORGED LANDSCAPES, a new exhibition in Ross Gallery, will feature work by painter Sharon Dowell and ceramicist Ahmad Sabha. The show will be on view October 3 – November 14, with an opening reception October 10 from 5 – 7.

The industrial, cylindrical ceramics, glazed in appealing colors, sit upon dark gray casted concrete forms. Dowell’s paintings are a bright, organic, vivid contrast, which, through their visual components of maps, streets, and buildings, provide a wonderful visual echo.

These two Charlotte artists have been exhibiting locally and nationally for quite a while. We are thrilled to host them here at CPCC.

If you’d like to learn more about their work, please join us for their artist lectures here on CPCC Central Campus.
