Arts Briefs: Organic Art, a Marching Band and a Day for Dogs | Arts & Theater
Artworks Gallery will present a new exhibition, “Organic Impressions,” June 26-July 30 at 564 N. Trade St., Winston-Salem, featuring works by Seth Moskowitz and Mona Wu.
The exhibit will be part of the upcoming Gallery Hop from 7-9pm on July 1.
An artists’ reception will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on July 10.
Moskowitz is a Winston-Salem-based artist who creates and combines photographic images into works of art that rarely resemble photography or the images they incorporate. He describes creating his work as “an escape from the verbal cacophony of the working world – a way to enter a peaceful, magical place that is literally beyond words”. His works focus on nature and nudes and combinations of the two.
Originally from China, Mona Wu immigrated to the United States in 1970. She studied Chinese painting and calligraphy in Hong Kong, then earned her Bachelor of Arts in Art History at Salem College in 1996. She also studied printmaking at Wake Forest University from 1997 to 2014. . Wu has taught classes and workshops in Chinese art and printmaking at Salem Community College, Reynolda House of American Art, and Sawtooth School of Visual Art. Wu presents a series of monotype prints depicting fall and winter foliage in their natural forms, but transformed into expressive collage work by manipulations in the printing process. This exhibition is free and open to the public.
