RedSky Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by John Geci and Sarah Faulkner
RedSky Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will present an exhibition of glass sculptures by John Geci and paintings by Sarah Faulkner, on view from May 7 through July 7, 2010.
Glass artist John Geci, a native of rural Connecticut, graduated from Hartwick College in Oneonta, NY, in 1994 with a BA in Philosophy. While majoring in Philosophy, he developed an interest and minor concentration in ceramics and glass. His fascination with creating forms influenced him to pursue a career in hand-blown glass. After college, Geci enrolled in a two-month study at the Penland School in North Carolina, where he studied under some of the great names in glass blowing. Since then he has worked in the Penland area, assisting teachers, helping run the Penland studio, working with local glass artists, and making his own work.
Asheville, NC, painter Sarah Faulkner strives to capture the important relationship humans have with the natural world. She experiments with different materials in order to reflect the mysterious and atmospheric qualities found in nature. Faulkner works with paraffin wax as a finish coat. This translucent and misty material blends and softens the undercoat colors to give her work depth and light.
RedSky Gallery features original works on paper and canvas, sculpture, ceramic, glass, studio furniture, art-to-wear, jewelry, and more. Over 500 regional and national artists are represented at three gallery locations in Dilworth, Blakeney Town Centre in South Charlotte and the EpiCentre in Uptown.
