- Art Without Borders With Beatrice Schall in Greensboro
- Art Without Borders, an exhibition of the mixed media
world of Beatrice Schall, will be in the 1000 sq. ft. Leon's
Style Salon, at Friendly Avenue and Radiance Drive in Greensboro,
NC, through July 19.
Schall is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill, and the recipient of many grants and awards for her art
Schall uses painting, drawing, sewing and assemblage to express
layers of time and personal experiences. Her work passes in and
out of the past and present, using mementos of family members,
found objects and new materials to create threads of life.
Of her work Schall says, "My work involves the exploration
of the human life cycle and rites of passage, and the cycles
in Nature. I am drawn to a variety of materials to express my
ideas, and these include found objects, fabric, family photographs,
text and natural materials from the environment. (bark, straw,
sand, etc.). I use the processes of painting, drawing, sewing
and assemblage among others in my work. It is often an action/reaction
process where one image may stimulate the next, thus allowing
my intuition to play an important role. The sense of time is
important to me, and by layering the materials, I hope to suggest
both the layers of meaning in the work and the passage of time.
My work comes from my personal experiences in all their range,
from my Jewish heritage, to travel to memory, to life situations
and are there for the viewer to relate to from their own background."
The exhibition is a part of the Art/Fashion Fusion program at
Leon's Style Salons. The program supports local artists by offering
exhibition opportunities. Also on display at the Salon will be
works in: ceramics, wood, metal, papier mache, glass and fabric,
