Chris Flory, “Spanish Dreams”
and Beverly Noyes, “Ode to the Fern”
March 1 - April 1, 2017
Gallery Hop: Friday, March 3, 7 – 10 p.m.
Chris Flory’s paintings in this exhibition, all acrylic on paper, are abstractions inspired by last year's trip to the south of Spain. The series "Alhambra Dreams" derives from decorative motifs carved in plaster on the walls of La Alhambra, in Granada. The other paintings were inspired by the endless arches of La Mezquita in Cordoba, and by the landscape outside of Toledo.
Chris has a BFA in Printmaking from Philadelphia College of Art and an MFA in Painting from UNC-Greensboro. She lives in Winston-Salem with her husband and has been a member of Artworks Gallery since 1993.
Beverly Noyes will exhibit watercolors that were inspired
by her appreciation of the many varieties of the
beautiful and graceful fern.
Noyes has enjoyed growing a variety of ferns and has relished their graceful beauty. Incorporating a pictorial environment that related to the fern’s character provided an interesting challenge for each watercolor painting.
Beverly has been a member of Artworks Gallery since 1989 and is an exhibiting member of Associated Artists of Winston-Salem. Her work has been on exhibit locally and throughout the country for the past 30 years.
