PRLog - March 7, 2014 - DURHAM, N.C. -- DURHAM, NC (February 24, 2014)—DWELL, a provocative new show featuring Jim Adams and Sandra Elliott, running from March 11-30 at Pleiades Fine Art Gallery in Durham, N.C., will explore and challenge stock assumptions and perceptions about the relationship between art, architecture and interior design.
DWELL at Pleiades featuring Adams/Elliott
Fully titled "DWELL, an interior designer and an architectural draftsman walk into a gallery...",
The show will combine the works of Adams, a metal sculptor and draftsman, and Elliott, a painter and designer, to “inspire conversation about the labels we put on the beautiful things with which we surround ourselves.”
“We’re teaming up for this show to merge our backgrounds in residential, commercial, industrial, and furniture design, as a means of confronting stereotypical thinking,” say the artists. “Through our work, we’re hoping to both engage viewers and stimulate discussion about what society calls art and what it labels as craft—and how this all ties into design.”
DWELL will present inspiring metal sculptures which also function as lighting; large pieces of abstract and impressionist art which have been turned into upholstery and oilcloth rugs; paintings hanging on the wallpaper which inspired their design; and elegantly sculpted furniture from metal and wood.
Located in Downtown Durham, Pleiades is a fine art gallery owned and operated by local artists who celebrate Durham’s rich, diverse cultural energy. The Gallery welcomes new art appreciators as well as established collectors and strives to both build strong relationships with its customers and to help connect various arts communities within the city.
