A new exhibition at the Womble Carlyle Gallery of the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts in Winston-Salem, NC is a collaboration between Penland School and The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. Titled Identity, the exhibition showcases large-scale work by four artists who have close ties to Penland School. The show opened with a reception and artist talks on November 16. It runs through January 4, 2011.
Represented in the exhibition are silhouette artist Béatrice Coron, glass sculptor Janis Miltenberger, mixed-media sculptor Anne Lemanski, and ceramic sculptor Sunkoo Yuh. While these artists work in divergent media and each has their own sensibility and aesthetics, they share an exploration of human identity and the complex world around them. Viewed together, their work creates a joint narrative filled with stories, memory, and myth.
The show was curated by Penland Gallery manager Kathryn Gremley and installed by Kathryn and deputy director Jerry Jackson and their assistants Tammy Hitchcock and Matthew Thomason.
