Summer Exhibition “In The Details”   
5/21/2011 – 8/13/2011  
Waterworks Visual Art Center
123 East Liberty Street, Salisbury
Using famed writer and curator Dave Hickey’s notion of a “quarter-inch artist” (one for whom every quarter of an inch is critically important), our summer exhibition explores how five artists’ meticulous approaches create worlds in their artwork.  Michelle Heinz (New York City) paintings picks up where Picabia and Balthus left off, creating haunting tableaux in unsettling settings.  Holden McCurry’s (Asheville, NC) distinctive functional and sculptural art is inspired by organic and architectural forms and evokes quasi-biblical narratives with surrealist peculiarities.  Dan Abernathy presents painfully detailed and beautifully hand-painted carved wooden sculptures of birds native to North Carolina.  Fiber artist Nancy Cook’s hand-stitched quilts uses textile layering and embellishments to convey impressions of nature.  Artist Trena McNabb’s (Bethania, NC) unique style of blending transparent collage of images allows a variety of stories to be told in each layered landscape.

Gallery Hours:  Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10-5; Tuesday, Thursday 10-7; Saturday 11-3
