Flood Gallery Fine Arts Center in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Britney Carroll

The Flood Gallery Fine Arts Center in Asheville, NC, will present the exhibit, Inside Out, featuring works by Britney Carroll, a recent MFA graduate from Western Carolina University, on view in the Pump Gallery from Apr. 17 through May 22, 2010.

The show will explore the apprehension toward childbearing. Manifested through the craft of object-making and united with the design of wall painting, Carroll investigates the subject's internal and external affects on identity. Referencing both diagrammatic and invented imagery, Carroll's acrylic wall painting has become a metaphor for her struggle with ambivalence towards reproducing; the three-dimensional objects are her response to resulting emotional tensions.
Carroll began her undergraduate degree in 2002 at Young Harris College in Young Harris, GA, where she earned an Associates of Fine Arts degree with honors. Carroll continued her education at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA, to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Printmaking in 2006. During this time she displayed work in group exhibits and held a solo exhibition entitled, Lady, at Georgia College and State University. Currently Carroll has completed a MFA degree at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. She continues to show her work through group exhibition, both juried and invitational. Carroll recently coordinated A Female Dialogue at WCU, an exhibition in support of the 2009 Vagina Monologues.
