RedSky Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Offers Works by Ingrid Amols and James Breed

RedSky Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will be celebrating the opening of a new exhibition of mixed media works by Ingrid Amols and glass sculptures by James Breed on May 13, 2011, at our new location, 1523 Elizabeth Avenue. Join us for a reception from 6-8:30pm. The show continues through July 7, 2011.

Ingrid Amols is a regional artist based in Charlotte. Immersed in art early in life, she enrolled in the Munson Williams Procter Institute in Utica, NY, where she studied clay, weaving, drawing and painting. Amols earned a BA in Art History from the SUNY at Purchase, NY and received an MA in Illustration from Syracuse University in Syracuse, NY. She also interned at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York, NY, and at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, CT.

Following college, Amols continued her artistic journey, teaching art through The Gifted and Talented Program at Queens University, Charlotte Country Day School and the Braitman Studio. She also worked extensively with her homeless friends through Charlotte Urban Ministry Center.

“For me, creating works of art is an enjoyable, challenging and thoughtful process that takes me on a personal journey. It is exciting to explore a variety of techniques, materials and subject matter.” Amols works include mixed media paintings and collage.

James Breed uses glass to sculpt work that is both narrative and symbolic. He uses hot sculpting, free-form techniques to create parts that are then cut and ground for assemblage of the final piece. He is enamored by process but conceptually driven. The content of his work depicts the human’s modern relationship with the environment and the conflict and/or balance between the material and natural world.

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 two gallery locations, on Elizabeth Avenue and at the EpiCentre Uptown.
