Davidson County Community College in Lexington, NC, Offers Group Exhibit

Davidson County Community College in Lexington, NC, is presenting the exhibit Expressions of Style, featuring a group offering of works by 12 regional artists, on view through May 13, 2011. The 108-piece exhibit is on view in the Mendenhall Building on the Davidson Campus. The show includes paintings, photography, fused glass art, woodturnings and drawings.

Jewel Baldwin of Charlotte, NC, displays watercolors that are crisp and realistic. Her subject matter is eclectic, interesting and reflects her love of travel.

Richard Siegel is also a watercolorist from Charlotte. His large, vibrant watercolors portray the unique experience of painting the great outdoors, experiencing the effects of sunlight and shadows.

Lexington artist Laura Poss exhibits her watercolors of nature and landscapes which reveal the beauty of the environment.

Andrew Goliszek, also from Lexington, captures the beauty of nature in his black and white photography. His work offers a great tonal range, adding drama and richness.

Woodturner Glenn Mace of Mocksville, NC, uses gnarly wood to start the process, which is almost immediately transformed when turned on a lathe. Most of the turned wood vessels are highly lacquered and have unique tops that accent their base.

Kure Beach, NC, artist Ginny Wagner has several traditional and colorful watercolors in the show which depict North Carolina scenes and landscapes.

Jack Hernon's large and boldly colorful abstract acrylic mixed media paintings invoke a feeling of motion and excitement. The Winston-Salem, NC, artist's images invite expansion of perception in the minds of the viewers.

The art of Trena McNabb is a curious and elegant synthesis of realism and imagination. Her paints of allegorical scenes are in a distinctive style, multi-layered montage with brightly lighted, realistically rendered, thematically related scenes and images. McNabb is a resident of Bethania, NC.

Karen Dixon of Hoover, AL, exhibits her fused glass pieces, some in the form of bowls and others free standing sculptures which are inspired by nature. Kiln formed glass allows endless ways to express the artist's creativity.

Erin Oliver of Mt. Airy, NC, portrays physical and psychological landscape imagery by evoking natural and organic forms, using colored pencil and watercolors. Color and self-expression are important in Oliver's work.

Denton, NC, artist Anne Croom uses oils to create dramatic lights and darks, bright colors, lost shadow and delicate accents. Her style is painterly, with thick paint (impasto) on highlights.

Edna Wolf of Winston-Salem uses oil paint to capture the beauty of the world around her.
