Nature can inspire all of us. For artists, that inspiration often results in powerful works that speak to our connection with the world in which we live.
Explore humanity’s relationship with nature during Earthy Abstractions, an exhibition presented by Ellington-White CDC at the Arts Council. The show opens during 4th Friday, March 27, from 7 to 9 p.m. and continues through May 16.
This contemporary exhibition features more than 30 artists who physically, philosophically or stylistically incorporate elements of natural materials such as soil, clay, wood, metal, stone and other materials into their visual practice.
The non-objective works have a direct connection in either theme, texture, or materials with the natural world. Employing resonant elements that enhance each other, the works cultivate visual, tactile, and, at times, harmonic experiences.
The galleries are open 6 days a week for this show. See gallery hours below.
Arts Council galleries are located at 301 Hay Street, Fayetteville, NC. Admission is free.
Monday – Thursday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Friday: 9 a.m. to noon
Saturday: noon to 4 p.m.
