Mary Beth Blackwell-Chapman:
"Human Rights: The Beginning"

May 28 - July 1, 2017
Gallery Hop: Friday, June 2, 7 – 10 p.m.
Reception: Sunday, June 4, 2 - 4 p.m.


The oldest known declaration of human rights was written in 539 B.C. on a clay cylinder by King Cyrus of Persia.  It is known as the Cyrus Cylinder.  Blackwell-Chapman's works in ceramic, paper, and mica are responses to this ancient declaration.  The art includes 25 wall mounted ceramic heads, several ceramic Safe Abodes, paper wall constructions of different interwoven world languages and wall mounted ceramic Altars.

Blackwell-Chapman is a native of and lives in Forsyth County, North Carolina. She earned a BA in English Literature from Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland, and an MA in Motion Picture from Northwestern University in Chicago. Her works are in collections in Virginia, West Virginia, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, and France. She has exhibited annually since 1993 in juried and non- juried shows in North Carolina.
