In addition to our other programs, New Winston Museum presents a free monthly Salon Series featuring a broad range of local historians, artists, writers, musicians, crafts-folk and other specialists. Speakers discuss aspects of their work and their process to find interpersonal connections with their work and the broader community. Light refreshments are provided, and guests are welcome to bring brown bag lunches or dinners to the presentations. Unless otherwise noted, NWM programs are free of charge. Donations are encouraged and greatly appreciated.
Rethinking Our Relationship with the Environment”
“Nature Through an Artist’s Eyes”
Thursday, March 23, 2017 – 5:30pm
This program will be the final installment in our first quarter Salon Series, “Nature Through New Eyes: Rethinking Our Relationship with the Environment.” A panel of artists will explore the way nature and art affect our lives today, and how that compares to the way the Moravians thought about art and nature in the 18th and 19th centuries.
A group of local artists and photographers, including Melrose Buchanan, Julian Charles, Lea Lackey-Zackmann, Trena McNabb, and Christine Rucker, will discuss a work of art from historic Salem, and a work of their own that focuses on nature in the Piedmont. Join us to see their works up close, hear how and why they created them and how they feel this relates to the way artists historically thought about nature.
Our guest curator for this Salon Series is Cornelia Barr, board chair of the Gateway Nature Preserve.
There is no charge to attend the program, but donations are always welcomed.
