Mesh Gallery in Morganton, NC, Features Works by Lucy Folger and Suzie Rowland

Mesh Gallery in Morganton, NC, will present Expression & Impression, featuring mixed media works by Morganton artists Lucy Folger and Suzie Rowland, on view from July 8 through Aug. 23, 2013. A reception will be held on July 12, from 6-8pm.

Lucy Folger has exhibited in juried, single and 2-person shows throughout the region. A former member of the Asheville Gallery of Art she has shown in Sawtooth Gallery in Winston Salem, NC, the Asheville Art Museum, the Caldwell Arts Council, The Old Rock School in Valdese, NC and at the Burke Arts Council to name a few.

Folger uses collage as her medium of choice, often combining watercolors, acrylics, found objects, printmaking techniques and papermaking. Channeling Kurt Schwitters, the intent of Folger’s art is to stimulate the imagination and to create visual abstractions that are unique.

“The joy of discovery when experimenting with different materials keeps my work ever evolving. Color and texture are the elements most evident in my compositions,” says Folger.

Suzie Rowland has studied at the Penland School of Crafts and with the late Morganton painter Raymond Goodfellow. Aside from painting, She has designed for textile firms and maintained a family operated pottery business producing an original line of lamp bases and accessories. Rowland has been involved in painting and printmaking for the last 30 years. Inspired by her natural surrounding her work centers on landscapes and animals.

For Expression & Impression, Rowland has created impressionistic works in acrylic as well as works using traditional printmaking techniques.
