HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. - June 25, 2019 - PRLog -- Jeweler Nell Chandler is including a new process in her current work. "For the past couple of years I have delved into learning more about torch enamel. I have mostly taught myself via tutorials on You Tube, but last spring I was able to take an enamel class using a kiln. For this show, I will be exploring enameling in more depth with new techniques and an extended palette."

Fabric artist Ali Givens' work is inspired by her home town. "My focus for this show is Hillsborough, the small North Carolina town that inspires me at every turn. By layering and stitching hand-painted fabrics I aspire to create collages that evoke a sense of place. I have a deep connection with Hillsborough and my hope is to capture this emotion with colorful cloth and thread."

A potter, Evelyn Ward has made a shift in her new work, "After working for about 15 years in salt firing, I recently made the switch to using low-fire earthenware. I was attracted to earthenware because of the colors I could achieve in a lower temperature firing range allowing me to bring to life the designs I've been thinking about for a while. The rich brown clay is a perfect backdrop for bright color. The forms are more highly-constructed and are decorated with bold blocks of color. This new work is a departure in a lot of ways but mostly is just an evolution."

Painter Michele Yellin immerses herself in her environment "I fill my well with color, light, shape, and space only to pour it all out onto the canvas and into the world. I paint my life. I put everything into my painting, the happy, the sad, the angry, the lonely, the joy and the gratitude. Every painting is a meditation on the awareness that we are all simultaneously isolated and connected, to each other and all things. I paint to reveal the numinous that surrounds us all."

Local Color can be seen at the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts July 22nd- August 25th. There will be an opening reception during Hillsborough's Last Friday Art Walk on July 26th from 6-9pm.
