“Beneath the Surface:Yellowstone Caldera"
by Jody Danner Walker

Solo Exhibition of Cast Glass and Photography

Exhibit dates: July 29 – August 30, 2008
Reception: Friday, August 1, 7 - 10 p.m.

YellowstoneArtworks Gallery is presenting selected new works by Jody Danner Walker, consisting of cast glass sculptures and smaller glass stones inspired by natural formations at Yellowstone National Park. Photographic images document the natural context for the glass abstractions, and create a visual backdrop in the gallery.

From the artist:

"Yellowstone National Park is among America’s greatest wonders and a personal source of artistic inspiration. These pieces depict abstract memories of the ever-changing light, vivid colors, and distinctive textures and patterns experienced and documented on-site. The caldera, formed by ancient volcanic craters, is marked by the constant moving and shifting of the earth’s surface, as though being alive. My work captures the mood of those transformations and expresses the majesty of Nature. Combining the solid form of glass sculpture with light refraction and layers of painterly color, the pieces become abstract expressions of nature’s beauty.”

The exhibit displays multiple formats of kiln-formed glass pieces, including wall-mounted works, free standing sculptures, and small pieces, similar to stones, designed to be touched and held by the viewer.

Primarily a self-taught oil painter, acrylic and pastel artist, Jody Danner Walker began working in kiln-formed glass in 2001. Her art can be found in galleries, private and corporate collections across the U.S. She has won honors in several shows throughout North Carolina and has consistently juried into several prestigious events throughout the country, including the annual auction for Dale Chihuly’s Pilchuck Glass School. Jody teaches advanced classes on kiln-formed glass throughout the country at private studios and schools such as Corning Museum of Glass, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and Hocking College, and locally at Warm Glass Gallery and Studio in Clemmons, NC.

The opening reception is Friday, August 1, from 7 to 10 pm, coinciding with the Gallery Hop in the Downtown Arts District of W-S.

The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.
