Exhibit: Uncommon Volumes: Sculptural Selections from Studio Glass in the Region

Blowing Rock Art & History Museum 159 Ginny Stevens Lane, Blowing Rock

This exhibition draws together more recent works from the past 30 years that illustrate continued experimentation in sculptural glass. Ranging from the decidedly abstract to figural studies, these examples constitute only a small cross-section of the varied strategies deployed by artists as they continue to push and shape the medium to meet the needs of their own studio practices.

Exhibit: Coast to Coast: Contrasts & Shared Values Across American Impressionism

Blowing Rock Art & History Museum 159 Ginny Stevens Lane, Blowing Rock

Presented in the Rankin West Gallery at Blowing Rock Art & History Museum

Coast to Coast draws connections across impressionist painting as it was practiced on opposite sides of America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, focusing on the artists who made the journey—some permanently and some temporarily—and how the relationships that emerged between them led to a dynamic and often divergent approach to plein-air painting.

Exhibit: Earth & Fowl: Ceramic Poultry

Blowing Rock Art & History Museum 159 Ginny Stevens Lane, Blowing Rock

The ceramic objects found in this exhibition are obviously of a kind. Birds have long been a common subject for sculptural objects meant for the home. In particular, domestic poultry—ducks, geese, guineas, pigeons, and turkeys, with chickens chief among them—are animals that have been deeply integrated into our visual culture.
