UNC-Charlotte's Cone Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Pauline Dove

New works by Pauline Dove, A Woman's Work is Never Done, will be on exhibition at the UNC-Charlotte, Cone Center Main Gallery in Charlotte, NC, through Mar. 31, 2002.

Works on display at the Cone Center include color drawings, one-of a-kind artist's books, and ceramics. Within this range of media is a common thread of pictorial fantasy. The drawings, which are either done with colored pencil or oil pastels, or both, are filled with whimsical images which rely on art historical references, current events, and flights of the artist's imagination. These drawings, along with the little books, sometimes contain double-entendres, or loaded messages that might be construed as moral tales.

The ceramic platters in the exhibit are used as surfaces for drawing brightly outlined lizards in repeat patterns that recall an aboriginal source - although the real source is a child's toy lizard. The artist would invite the viewer to draw whatever meanings from the works that his or her own personal history suggests. Above all, enjoy the elaborate detail, and have just as much fun looking at the work as the artist had while making it.

It should be noted that the University will be closed from Mar. 3 - 9, 2002, for Spring Break.
