CPCC Galleries is thrilled to host the annual Airy Knoll Farm Show again this year. Above is a picture of the exhibition as we finished installing.
Titled, “Seeing… Observations from Nature,” the exhibition contains work by students of the Airy Knoll Farm in Middlesburg, VA, and focuses on capturing the contemplative nature one must embrace as a member of the class. Long time CPCC Instructor Elizabeth Ross encourages her students to open their minds to a more subjective way of seeing and appreciating the world.
The work on view includes paintings, works on paper, collage, and sculpture. All work is for sale.
On view through January 3
Opening Reception and performance November 22 beginning at 6:00 p.m.
Last week, new murals by Isaac Payne and Sharon Dowell were unveiled in Concord, NC. The City of Concord commissioned Payne, a CPCC painting instructor, and Dowell, former CPCC Gallery Coodinator and current exhibiting artist, to create mural designs to adorn buildings in Concord’s charming downtown district. Though very different, the two painters’ styles frequently incorporate urban themes and visual elements, a perfect fit for city murals.
Congratulations to Isaac Payne and Sharon Dowell.
