Haywood women present ‘Piercing the mundane’

Written by 

An exhibition featuring The Women of NoHa called “piercing the mundane” will go on display Aug. 29 at Gallery 86 in downtown Waynesville, with an artist’s reception from 6-9 p.m. Sept. 7.

Six women artists, all of who reside in Haywood County, have joined together to explore the reinterpretation of ordinary objects within their mediums of textiles, clay, wood, jewelry, and mixed media. 

Caryl Brt, Suzanne Gernandt, Susan Livengood, Sheree White Sorrells, Kaaren Stoner and Kim Thompson — all career professional artists — are taking a stab at the word ‘mundane.’ Their individual works are each a statement in mindfulness of the ordinary. A stone can be more than a random rock on the ground; a chair can be a character statement; and a blank wall doesn’t need to be.

Gallery 86 is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday thru Saturday, and “piercing the mundane” will be on display until Sept. 22.

828.452.0593 or 828.400.1040.

She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
