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.

Pervasive Pollution is a collaborative exhibition of the Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design Departments at Central Piedmont Community College, North Carolina; Indiana University Bloomington, Indiana; and Winthrop University, South Carolina; focused on the exploration of pollution and contamination on a small, personal scale. Artists from each school interpreted the topic of pollution as it applied directly to their person or personal surroundings with the collaborative goal to cultivate an appreciation for personal intimacy, as well as the personal sphere and how it can be encroached upon.
