Central Piedmont Announces Fall Semester Exhibits for the Bill and Patty Gorelick Program

Central Piedmont Gorelick Galleries are delighted to announce two new exhibits that have joined the gallery this fall semester. The new exhibits will be on display at Harper and Central Campus.
The exhibit on our Harper Campus is showcased at Harper IV and features glass work from artist John Geci. Geci is a glassblower near Penland School of Craft in Western North Carolina. Having been a student and a studio assistant to local glassblowers, Geci learned a diverse array of techniques and approaches to the material becoming a master to his craft. His exhibit features 13 beautifully crafted glass vessels that capture his vision of static motion. His contemporary blown glass pieces illuminate the gallery with stunning color variation and striking patterns. His exhibit is also featured alongside the two-dimensional works of Tom Stanley at Harper Campus.
 
 
The exhibit on our Central Campus is located in the North Classroom Building and features work from artist Barbel Brooks in an exhibit called “Fused Imagination”. Brooks discovered her lifelong passion when beginning to fuse glass 20 years ago. As her art evolved her focus continued to expand with specific areas of inspiration in water, color, and culture.  Her travels along the majestic seas, personal life experience, and background in chemistry and physics have had an influence on her artwork and have brought her pieces to life. This exhibit ranges from decorative glass plates to vibrant wall hangings which can stand alone as well as complement its counterparts. This solo exhibit uses glass with fusing techniques to create unique artwork capturing her infinite colorful imagination.
Both artworks are part of the Gorelick Galleries and are held in open spaces so we encourage if walking through these spaces to have a look around or schedule an appointment by calling the Foundation at 704-330-6869 or email us at foundation@cpcc.edu
