Shows planned at Artworks Gallery
Artworks Gallery will present Marion Adams’ “Wild” and Nanu Lindgren LaRosee’s “Someone to Watch Over Me” today, Sept. 1, through Sept. 28 at 564 N. Trade St., Downtown Arts District, Winston-Salem.
Artworks will be open for the DADA 1st Friday Gallery Hop 7-10 p.m. Sept. 6. An artists’ reception will be 2-4 p.m. Sept. 8.
“Wild,” by Adams, has both two and three-dimensional artwork representing animals of African and Far Eastern regions. Although whimsical in appearance, the majority of the wild animals portrayed in the exhibit are on the endangered list. She has chosen re-purposed items for her sculpture.
LaRosee is presenting mixed-media paintings that are her visual response to the idea of “Someone to Watch Over Me” and the mixed meanings that phrase has in our lives. LaRosee explores the unnerving idea that we are all under constant surveillance by phones, computers, cars, security cameras, fitbits and work badges in a lighter, sometimes humorous way.
Admission is free. Visit www.Artworks-Gallery.org or call 336-723-5890. It is open Wednesday-Sunday.
