JANUARY CALENDAR ARTIST BRONWYN MERRITT EXHIBITION
Thru. Jan. 8 to Jan. 31
RECEPTION Jan. 9th 6pm to 9pm with wine, cheese, and the classical music of three local students.
Bronwyn Merritt is an emerging artist in the field of mixed media painting who uses traditional printmaking and painting techniques to create large scale works on canvas. Her subjects are both narrative and abstract, and always feature richly layered surface texture and pattern. From an early career as a relief printmaker with an art-deco style, she switched to contemporary narrative paintings, and then to mixed media compositions. Her prints are in private collections around the world and in the collections of the Corcoran Gallery and the Weatherspoon Museum. She has exhibited in galleries around her home state of North Carolina for 25 years, and taught workshops, classes and college courses in studio art and art history. She is currently working on a collection exploring memory and identity through handcrafts left by her mother, a multi-media artist who died from Alzheimer’s Disease in 2013.
