Western North Carolina artist Norma Hendrix will hold an opening exhibit of her work from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14 at the Jackson County historic courthouse rotunda.
Hendrix sees life through a complexity of layers. The works in this exhibit are constructs of landscapes, interior and exterior spaces and visual play from musings and journeys. Each piece combines rubbings — direct impressions taken from flora or architectural matter — with paint and drawing, papers and layers of marks. Hendrix is the executive director of Cullowhee Mountain ARTS and serves on the board of the Jackson County Arts Council.
This is the first of exhibits that will be sponsored by the Jackson County Arts Council in what is to be known as the “Rotunda Gallery” at the historic courthouse. The exhibits will feature regional artists who will be able to submit proposals for exhibitions through the arts council.
The exhibition will be open for viewing until Jan. 10.
