Chris Flory and Nancy Hayes

September 1 - 25, 2010
Opening Reception: Friday, September 3, 7 - 10 pm

Artworks Gallery presents a two-person exhibit of paintings entitled "Elsewhere" by Chris Flory, and collages entitled "Greeting Cards from Planet Earth" by Nancy Hayes.

Pink PaintingChris Flory is showing small acrylic on panel paintings most of which were inspired by a recent three month trip to Paris. A few are representational, others are more abstract, dealing with the artist’s feelings about and impressions of Paris. Chris Flory was born in Philadelphia and has lived in Winston-Salem since 1988. She has a BFA in Printmaking from Philadelphia College of Art (now University of the Arts) and a MFA from UNC-Greensboro.

Can Panthers Purr?Nancy Hayes is showing collages that are a tapestry of images as an homage to the surviving beasts of the natural world, revealing a sense of their peril and frailty. These works continues a line of artistic exploration of the animal kingdom and its interface with the modern world. The compositions frequently present caricatures played out through ironic use of proportion and contrasting elements. Ms. Hayes states: "With a trace of urgency in my work, reflecting the current collective sense of global environmental change, my fear is hopefully matched with a sense of humor and joy derived from my underlying world view".

The opening reception is Friday, September 3, 7 - 10 pm, coinciding with the Gallery Hop.

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