ClearWater Artist Studios celebrates a joint show of new works by tenant artists, “ClearWater Artists: New Works (2017)," a gallery exhibit featuring the first joint exhibit of new artworks by a majority of the artists leasing studios here, in over a year.
The show was opened At 2:00 p.m., Saturday, August 12, 2017 during the monthly ‘2nd Saturday Open Studios’ (which runs 10am -4pm), when artists in the show gathered in the Gallery for an ‘Artist Talk Panel,’ facilitated by Manager Sarah Gay.
Audience members had many questions for the artists, to learn about why and how they do what they do. The discussion went on for an hour and a half! Art studios, and the Southern Piedmont Woodturners club were also open for perusal --- and will be open again, 10am-4pm, on 2nd Saturday Open Studios for September (9/9/17).
The Exhibition will come down at the end of September 2017, to make way for our special October show, the first solo show of her new series of abstract expressionist works by tenant artist, Barbara Ellis! Titled, "Abstracting Spirit," that show will be up just three weeks: Oct. 7-27, with an Opening Reception on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 7:00p.m.
In November -December we will showcase the 2nd annual exhibit of 'Artistry in Woodturning,' works by members of the Southern Piedmont Woodturners' Club (Opening dates TBA); and in January, we'll host the 2nd Annual Faculty Show of works by adjunct and tenured faculty at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College (RCCC), Department of Fine & Applied Arts., for a month, before we get ready for the 4th annual Portrait Paint-Off and associated Featured Painter Exhibition for the months of February-March! Stay tuned to our events lists and associated social media event listings for details.
