Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Sharon Dowell and Ahmad Sabha

Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC, will present an exhibit of paintngs by Sharon Dowell and ceramic works by Ahmad Sabha, on view in the CPCC Ross Gallery, from Oct. 3 through Nov. 14, 2013. A reception will be held on Oct. 10, from 5-7pm.

Sabha uses industrial forms like factories, pipes and water towers as inspiration for his ceramic creations, which are replete with contrasts in shape, texture and color. In contrast, Dowell’s paintings capture the bright energy of place through mapping, layering and architectural forms that combine to create representations forged with emotional experience. Each artist’s appreciation for the overlooked reliquaries of industry and their medium will be evident to exhibition attendees. Dowell’s paintings will serve as a dramatic backdrop to Sabha’s ceramic pieces, which will be displayed on pedestals or on their own forged steel stands throughout Ross Gallery.

Sharon Dowell will give an Artist Lecture on Oct. 24 at noon in Ross Gallery.
