Local artist Norma Hendrix will have an exhibition of her artwork in the Jackson County Public Library Complex. The opening of the exhibit will be Friday, Dec. 14 from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibition will be on display through Jan. 10, 2013.
Artist Norma Hendrix sees life through a complexity of layers. The works in this exhibit are constructs of landscapes, interior and exterior spaces and visual play from musings and journeys. Each piece combines rubbings – direct impressions taken from flora or architectural matter – with paint and drawing, papers and layers of marks. The images have been gathered from sketches and direct rubbings from France, Mexico and Western North Carolina. Hendrix holds an MFA from Johnson State College, Vermont, and MA from Western Carolina University and a BFA from Ohio University. She exhibits regularly in the region. She is the Executive Director of Cullowhee Mountain ARTS and serves on the board of the Jackson County Arts Council (JCAC).
This is the first of exhibits that will be sponsored by the Jackson County Arts Council in what is to be known as the “Rotunda Gallery” at the Historic Courthouse. The exhibits will feature regional artists who will be able to submit proposals for exhibitions through the JCAC. Information will be posted on their website. The Jackson County Historical Society, and the Jackson County Genealogical Society may from time to time use the Rotunda Gallery for special exhibits as well. All three organizations are housed in the Jackson County Historic Courthouse.
