Evolving art from nature

Four artists reflect on the intersection of architecture and nature through the use of form, texture, and surfaces in the current exhibit at Waterworks Visual Arts Center.
Sharon Dowell is an adjunct professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, a Gallery Coordinator at Central Piedmont Community College, and a curator.
Clay artist Mark Gordon of Wilson has worked in clay for over 30 years, beginning with wheelthrowing and extending into modular assembled clay sculptures and mixed media installations.
Isaac Payne from Tacoma, Wa., but currently residing in Charlotte, uses draftsmanship and a range of drawing and painting media to create images of architectural environments.
A native of South Carolina, Charlotte artist Patricia Steele Raible integrates painting with markings, textures, images, and words to narrate her stories.
Also on view is “Celebrating Rowan County’s Young Artists” in the Young People’s Gallery. Now in its 30th year, this rotating display of artwork features the works of nearly 800 students representing Salisbury-Rowan County’s public, independent, and home-schooled students.
A reception to honor the students and their families, the art specialists, and school administrators is held during each exhibition rotation.
The Independent and Home Schools exhibition is on display through March 6 and the reception is Thursday, Feb. 28 at 5 p.m.
The exhibits are free and open to the public. Waterworks is located at 123 E. Liberty St., www.waterworks.org
