Each summer, instructor Elizabeth Ross takes a group of students to a farm in Middlebrook, VA, to participate in a resident program presented by the Art Department of CPCC. During their week-long stay, students take part in an intensive exploration of the creative process of finding one’s own voice in the visual arts. The artwork on view is the product of each student’s own reflection on their experience.
An exhibition of the works of Marcia Goldenstein and Todd Johnson
Ross Gallery I: October 24–December 5, 2016
Artist Lectures: Thursday, November 3, 12:30–1:45 PM, Ross Gallery
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 3, 5:30–7:30 PM
Art history, scale, and craftsmanship are characteristics that unite the work of Marcia Goldenstein and Todd Johnson— Goldenstein’s embroidered portraits of women artists that reference photography and Johnson’s painted miniatures of historical works on commercial paint chips.
In Ladies in Stitches, Goldenstein celebrates women artists in a traditional craft which represents the domestic demands that they had to overcome to achieve their professional accomplishments.
Johnson selects commercial paint chips whose names evoke famous works of art, then faithfully reproduces the work in miniature directly on the chip.
