Artistic Expressions is pleased to present Carol Hunter
as Artist of the Month.
The Artistic Expressions Gallery Artist of the Month for April is Carol Hunter, who works in glass and metal. While her most colorful creations include stained glass, she also creates unique terrariums and individual jewelry pieces, many of which can be seen in our front window throughout the month.
"My work is mostly inspired by my love for the energy and whimsy found in nature," says Carol, who has been gardening and camping all her life. "I graduated with a degree in Landscape Horticulture from North Carolina State University and discovered the significance of proper design and the impact plants have on our lives. Glass is one of the oldest types of art used in architecture. Glass creates the opportunity for me to work with line, color, texture and light like no other media. Stained glass requires the artistic skill to achieve a workable design and the engineering skills to assemble the piece. I am very young in my knowledge and ability and am always looking to improve my skills. I hope that through my terrariums and planters, people can bring a little nature into their lives and some much needed color from my other pieces. Everyone needs a little more color!"
Carol began her journey twelve years ago when she first learned about the art of glass in a class at Sojourners, in Raleigh. She has tried new projects and challenges, including stained glass panels, 3-D glass pieces, and fusing glass - which she finds a very exciting way of creatively working in the medium. Carol is a local artist who has lived in North Carolina for over thirty years. Married with two children, she works from her nearby home studio.
Since she joined us in The Gallery, Carol's unique and colorful pieces have added a new dimension for us and a greater selection for our patrons. Please join us for her Artist's Reception Friday, April 11th, from 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM* at The Gallery. Wine and cheese and good humor will be served!
