Here's a Carolina Arts Update! 7/22/05
erl originals gallery in Winston-Salem, NC, is now closed. The following is no reflection on the artist(s) mentioned in this article. They still deserve the historical fact that this exhibition happened.
Here is an excerpt from an article in the Winston-Salem Journal's Dec. 10, 2004, edition: "In late September, (2004) erl's owners, Peter and Lee Swenson, and the company they operate, Bogart Management Group, were foreclosed on by their bank. They were barred from their gallery at 480 West End Blvd. for being months in arrears on rent and utilities. Peter Swenson is facing numerous tax-fraud charges, as well as a growing number of civil lawsuits filed by creditors seeking to collect payments they say are long overdue".
e.r.l. originals in Winston-Salem, NC, Features Works by Carolyn Goldsmith
Through Mar. 26, 2003, e.r.l. originals in Winston-Salem, NC, will feature Carolyn Goldsmith's large, colorful paintings on canvas and paper - done in her signature sophisticated style.
"My work is a visible expression of the expectancy with which I relate and respond to the world," says Goldsmith. "My paintings are the vehicle through which I address our common struggle to make sense of our existence, our place in the world, and our relationship to God."
The figures in Goldsmith's paintings tend to be impressions of people rather than portraits and include such subjects as musicians and dancers. Her sophisticated art captures life in narrative yet slightly informal moments.
"I find it exciting that the response from each viewer is always different, yet comes from that pool of emotions and symbols we all share - the tension between our individuality and commonality. I hope that the viewer will find immediacy to my work that triggers certain images, thoughts, dreams, memories, and visions of the future," adds Goldsmith. "Anything that stimulates or sets our imagination in motion, both humorous and serious, can be of use on our journey, and bring us joy."
Born in Gainesville, FL, Goldsmith graduated from Stephens College in Columbia, MO, and continued her studies in art at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Huntingdon College in Montgomery, AL, and The University of the South, in Sewanee, TN. She exhibits in the Southeast where her works are part of numerous corporate and private collections, such as architects Adams, Peacher, Keeton, Cosby, Inc. in Birmingham, AL; Paul W. Bryant, Jr. Conference Center at the University of Alabama; Maxwell Air force Base in Montgomery, AL; and Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, GA. Goldsmith has had numerous solo exhibitions, and her artwork has also been on display in numerous group exhibitions.
