Canada Council to Organize Holiday Exhibition and Art Sale | Business

With local artists and artisans in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County

Winston-Salem, North Carolina (November 8, 2021) — The Winston-Salem and Forsyth County Arts Council will host “No Place Like Home for the Holidays: A Holiday Art Exhibit and Sale” in the Milton’s Main Gallery Rhodes Center for the Arts from November 12 to December 31, 2021.

This art exhibit and sale will feature artists from Winston-Salem and Forsyth County and encourage customers to shop and support local artists during the holiday season. Guests are sure to experience a mix of media, including canvas art, handmade jewelry and accessories, leather goods, wood crafts, fiber arts, and more. A special sip and shop reception will be held on Thursday, December 9 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. with featured exhibit artists and an interactive lounge set provided by the Winston-Salem Little Theater. Art can be purchased and taken the same day.

The exhibition will also include works by Robert King that showcase paintings and sculptures from his “Phenoumena and Earthwork” series. King currently resides in Winston-Salem and completed his Ph.D. in Cultural Studies/Education at UNC-Greensboro. The heart of his artistic approach is the dialogue between materials and memories inspired by the human form and solitude in nature.

These days, I regularly replenish my inner experiences gained from kayaking on the lake, King said. It turns out that the experiences of being in a small boat on a large body of water are deeply integrative and eye-opening for me, in the same way that the experiences of drawing the human figure occurred at an earlier stage of my life and my artistic practice. The “Phenoumena and Earthwork” series will be on view until January 31, 2022.
