Tues.-Sat.: 11 a.m.-6p.m. (or by appt.)
Illumination opens and features the work of NC painter Catherine C. Martin, who approaches traditional subject matters, such as landscape and architecture, with unconventional techniques. Beginning each work by priming her canvas in an intense red, Martin then sketches her forms in purple. The dark outline of her forms, along with the hot accents of the under-painting, define the vibrant and intense style for which she is known. Meet the artist and discuss her work. Illumination will remain on view until June 20, 2015.
