New Bern ArtWorks in New Bern, NC, Offers Group Exhibition

New Bern ArtWorks in New Bern, NC, will feature works by five new gallery artists; Joane Geisel, Bruce Nellsmith, Jim Carson, Harrett Goode, and Linda Ferguson on view from Sept. 9 – 30, 2011. A reception will be held on Sept. 9, from 5-8pm, in ArtWorks new location, Studio 323 -“Home of Working Artisans”, 323 Pollock Street.

The exhibition brings together a unique, diverse group of artists featuring original works that reflect a wide range of styles and subject matter. Joanne Geisel has returned to her love of painting landscapes and teaching art. Bruce Nellsmith often describes his work as Hoffman tempered by a dose of Cezanne. Nellsmith is concerned with the solidity of the most flat abstract passages in the paintings.

Jim Carson’s “plein air” work has been described by art critics as “fresh and painterly”. Harrett Goode’s paintings are always of women, although they sometimes appear amorphous. Five years ago Linda Ferguson was introduced to bead weaving and it immediately captured her interest. Her jewelry is primarily free-form which make each piece unique and is designed to enhance one’s appearance, rather then overwhelm it.
