The Stokes County Arts Council will host Carolyn Landreth, Martina Moore, and Wyn and Oscar Hampton in the Apple Gallery during the month of September.
An opening reception will be held in their honor Friday, Aug. 31st, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Apple Gallery. The public is invited to come and meet the artists and view the beautiful array of artwork on display.
The theme of this exhibit is “Metal and Masks.” Landreth, co-owner of One Way Antiques in King, creates her unique jewelry with silver, copper, and brass combined with antique ivory including dominoes and piano keys. She began her silver smithing career in 1968 after taking college classes in Sioux Falls, S.D. Wyn and Oscar Hampton are apprentices of Landreth and will exhibit their creations from metal works at this exhibit. Martina Moore, a member of the Piedmont Craftsman Guild, will display her masks of leather, feathers and many natural materials. Moore is employed by Hospice of Stokes County.
The viewing of this exhibit with the reception is free and open to the public. The gallery, located at 500 N. Main Street, Danbury, is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call the Stokes County Arts Council at 336-593-8159 or send an email to email@example.com.
