Exhibit: Crafted Modern – The Collection of Rob Williams

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

The Studio Craft movement of the 20th Century witnessed a broad resurgence of artists working in mediums historically understood to be less precious than their fine art counterparts.

Exhibition: Lee Hall – Immediate Landscapes

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

This exhibition brings together a range of Hall’s compositions and begs the question, “What constitutes a landscape?” Moreover, why is landscape as a concept and signifier so persistent across the visual cultures of the past and present? In the case of Hall’s paintings and collages, the artist uses broad swaths of color to build her compositions which are at once visually dense while also flattening the dynamic vistas she interpreted.
