Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Marge Loudon Moody

Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC, will present the exhibit, Marge Loudon Moody: Field Lines, on view in the Pease Gallery from Sept. 13 through Nov. 1, 2011. A reception will be held on Sept. 15, from 5:30-7pm.

Moody graduated from Art College in Scotland in 1972 and has continued to work in painting, drawing, collage and mixed-media. She exhibits nationally and internationally in the US and Great Britain. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions in Washington, DC, and two-person shows in New York City.

Moody’s work is in numerous private and corporate collections including the SC Arts Commission permanent collection and the MUSC ‘Carolina Contemporary Collection’. She has been the recipient of several grants, notably from the South Carolina Arts Commission, the Arts & Science Council of Mecklenburg County, NC, and from Winthrop University, SC, where she is an associate professor of art.

Moody’s artwork is based on her experience of places, both distant and close to home. She makes abstract acrylic paintings on canvas, collages and mixed-media pieces, which, through a rigorous process of working and reworking art elements, arrive at a harmonious expression of an essential nature. Painted marks engage in conversation, while muted color promotes sentiments of quietude and of subtle states of being. Moody’s newest body of work examines boundaries, addresses the fragility of existence, of presence, of absence, and of memory.
