Winter Whites - A Seasonal Exhibition of Texture

Winter Whites, Ciel Gallery Nov 6 - Jan 9 Receptions: Nov 6 and Dec 4 - 6-9 PM

This exhition has many different media artists from six different countries: Australia, Canada, Cyprus, Egypt, Monaco, as well as the United States.

The gallery owner, Pam Goode, is a mosaic artist and with her international contacts, has a number of tile mosaics in the show. The softness of my three winter pieces contrasts beautifully with the hard textures of the mosaics. All of the art work in this small gallery has an appropriate intimate feel.

The theme held the show together beautifully. There are paintings, photographs and numerous mosaic tile pieces including several from a Canadian mosaic artist used a number of white shells and hard shelled marine animals in her work .

Here are details of two of my pieces in the show. I forgot to take the camera, but will try to get some gallery shots to post later.

If you are in the area, hope you can see the show. It is well worth the visit. It is right next door to the Charlotte Art League on Camden Road.
