RedSky Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Exhibit of Works by Paul Hastings and Devin Burgess
RedSky Gallery in Charlotte, NC, is proud to present an exhibition of paintings by Paul Hastings and glass work by Devin Burgess. The exhibition opens with a reception on Friday evening Jan. 14, for 6-8:30pm, at RedSky Gallery in Dilworth. The show runs through Feb. 28, 2011.
Devin Burgess is a glassblower who runs his own a studio in Bakersville, NC, making production and one-of-a-kind pieces. He has a BFA in sculpture and printmaking from Alfred University in New York. He has been an instructor at the Penland School of Crafts and has exhibited his work at the Mint Museum of Craft + Design (North Carolina), the Philadelphia Museum Craft Show, and the Smithsonian Craft Show (Washington, DC).
Burgess has been an assistant to many well-known glass artists including Dale Chihuly and Kenny Pieper. His work is in national and international collections.
Paul Hastings is an artist who easily moves from landscapes, to still life paintings, to trompe l'oeil in his chosen medium, oil painting. His landscapes feature bright, intense color, bordering on the surreal with an emphasis on amplified perspective. The accentuated shadows and aggressive highlights of his still life paintings give them a believability that begs a "touch" to see if the paintings are truly two dimensional.
Hastings is a self-educated artist who never stops studying and perfecting his craft through private lessons, workshops, and hours of independent study. His enthusiasm and insatiable appetite for producing new and ever more accomplished works keeps his patrons coming to see "what's new?"
RedSky Gallery features original works on paper and canvas, sculpture, ceramic, glass, studio furniture, art-to-wear, jewelry, and more. Over 500 regional and national artists are represented at two gallery locations in Dilworth and the EpiCentre in Uptown.
