WICKWIRE in Hendersonville, NC, Features Works by Noah Saunders
WICKWIRE fine art/folk art in Hendersonsonville, NC, will be featuring copper and steel wire sketches and sculpture by Noah Saunders through Apr. 30, 2006.
From childhood efforts
to shape pipe cleaner wire into fanciful forms to adult ambitions
to sketch and sculpt with copper and steel wire there resides
in every work by Saunders a reference to a meaningful journey
of his own. Saunders' father's early encouragement supported his
exploration into the vast potential of this particular medium.
By the age of sixteen and with the solo exhibition, Wired for
'96, Saunders claimed art as central to his life and future.
"After a summer at PRAT Art Institute in New York City, and a stab at conventionality, attending Georgia State University for an unglamorous semester," says Saunders, "I was cured of any romantic vestiges of Higher Education. Outside school, I became more committed to my work as well as education given lessons in the wonder of canvas painting by my stepmother. We continue to share a passion for color. I now work in a chaotic studio under the watchful eye of my she-hound named Yonah."
Since 1998, WICKWIRE
fine art/folk art has provided exceptional art choices, offering
original paintings, American handmade craft, handcrafted furniture,
photography and more, in two locations 330 and 329 N. Main Street,
Historic Downtown Hendersonville. The art galleries are environments
for reflection and inspiration - ". . . where the heart fines
On Apr. 8, 2006, from noon-5pm enjoy a demonstration of Saunders' creative technique at 329 N. Main Street.
