New Tomorrows reception Thursday at Waterworks

The opening reception is tonight, Nov. 17, from 4:30–6 p.m. at Waterworks for art students of Rowan Helping Ministries’ “New Tomorrows” outreach program. They have studied the work of the famous artist Jackson Pollack and created their own Pollack-style paintings. This event is free and open to the public. The exhibit runs from Nov. 16–Jan. 7.
Working with Waterworks instructor Ellen Phillips, they learned about relief printmaking, creating pulled prints from their own designs, built 3-D sculptures with plaster of paris, and created “mini-paintings” with acrylics.This outreach program uses art to connect with individuals who struggle with homelessness. Through the positive act of creating art, the “artists” have been creating new worlds and coming together in a place that is non-threatening and where they are free to explore and express themselves.
Waterworks will offer new art opportunities for the “New Tomorrows” students in 2012: A pottery workshop with Mimi Howard, visiting artists Don Moore, Betty Sedberry, and Cathy Matthews, as well as workshops in acrylic and watercolor paintings, wood sculpture, and drawing.
Waterworks Visual Arts Center, 123 E. Liberty St., 704-636-1882, www.waterworks. org
