Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC, Offers Works of Jewelry and Metal

Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC, will present Jewelry + Metals of the Carolinas, featuring artwork by jewelry artists and metal workers from across the Carolinas, on view in the CPCC Ross Gallery, from Feb. 6 through Mar. 6, 2014. A reception will be held on Feb. 13, from 5-7pm.

The exhibition will include a variety of techniques and materials, including enamel, plastic, resin and others by seven emerging and established artists, including Eliana Arenas, Claire Avery, Mi-Sook Hur, Katie Poterala, Caitie Sellers, Courtney Starrett and Loring Taoka.

The pieces will challenge the traditional perceptions of jewelry as body adornment, while exploring metal processes and techniques.

Like any other art media, the pieces in this show are the product of material and conceptual exploration, and so will contribute to the academic dialogue surrounding jewelry and metalworking as an art form.

Central Piedmont Community College is one of the largest colleges in the Carolinas, offering nearly 300 degree, diploma and certification programs, customized corporate training, market-focused continuing education, and special interest classes. CPCC is academically, financially and geographically accessible to all citizens of Mecklenburg County. In 2002, the National Alliance of Business named CPCC the Community College of the Year for its response to the workforce and technology needs of local employers and job seekers through innovative educational and training strategies. Established in 1963, CPCC has provided 50 years of service to Mecklenburg County residents, business and industry.
