Twelve artists are featured in the “Expressions of Style” spring art exhibit at Davidson County Community College. The 108-piece exhibit will be on display through May 13 and is open to the public during regular college operating hours.
The show includes paintings, photography, fused glass art, woodturnings and drawings.
Following are the artists and their diverse media areas:
• Jewel Baldwin of Charlotte displays watercolors that are crisp and realistic. Her subject matter reflects her love of travel.
• Richard Siegel is also a watercolorist from Charlotte. His large, vibrant watercolors portray the unique experience of painting the great outdoors.
• Lexington artist Laura Poss exhibits her watercolors of nature and landscapes.
• Andrew Goliszek, also from Lexington, captures the beauty of nature in his black and white photography.
• Woodturner Glenn Mace of Mocksville uses gnarly wood to start the process, which is almost immediately transformed when turned on a lathe.
• Kure Beach artist Ginny Wagner has several traditional and colorful watercolors in the show which depict North Carolina scenes and landscapes.
• Jack Hernon’s large and boldly colorful abstract acrylic mixed media paintings invoke a feeling of motion and excitement.
• Karen Dixon of Hoover, Ala., exhibits her fused glass pieces, some in the form of bowls and others free standing sculptures which are inspired by nature.
• Erin Oliver of Mt. Airy portrays physical and psychological landscape imagery by evoking natural and organic forms, using colored pencil and watercolors.
• Denton artist Anne Croom uses oils to create dramatic lights and darks, bright colors, lost shadow and delicate accents.
• Edna Wolf of Winston-Salem uses oil paint to capture the beauty of the world around her.
• The art of TrenaMcNabb is a synthesis of realism and imagination. Her paints of allegorical scenes are in a distinctive style. McNabb is a resident of Bethania.
