Artworks Gallery in Winston-Salem, NC, Features Works by Don Green and Lea Lackey-Zachmann
Artworks Gallery in Winston-Salem, NC, is presenting an exhibit of works by Don Green and Lea Lackey-Zachmann, on view through Feb. 25, 2012. A reception will be held on Feb. 12, from 2-4pm.
Green is showing wood sculptures plus paintings on paper inspired by themes from Nature. Zachmann is showing large oil paintings and digital images based on microscopic images of plants.
Green is showing two large and one smaller wood sculptures, as well as landscape paintings on paper done with watercolors or oil washes. His general theme is his inspiration from Nature, and in particular being intrigued by twisted rope forms and Bernini’s twisted sculpted columns in Italy. Green received a Certificate from the American Academy of Art in Chicago, a BFA from Illinois Wesleyan University, and his MFA in sculpture from the University of Wisconsin. He taught art at Methodist University in NC, and has worked in commercial art and advertising for many years.
Lea Lackey-Zachmann is investigating the plant kingdom by going into the garden, choosing a plant and placing a small amount of plant material onto a slide for viewing in a microscope. Large paintings are then created from searching the environment of the cellular structure shown in the photograph. Zachmann received her BA from Winthrop University in SC and her MFA in painting from UNC-Greensboro, NC. She teaches Art at High Point University, and lives in Winston-Salem. She is a founding member of Artworks Gallery and currently the exhibition chair.
