I always love to share about new exhibitions that come to our favorite art galleries here in Charlotte, and tonight there are two new exhibitions at the Hidell Brooks (located in the Southend Steelyard) from 6-8pm. At the opening your can meet the featured artists Geraldine Neywirth and Anke Schofield and enjoy food from the Roots food truck that will be onsite from duration of the opening.
Geraldine Neuwirth | The Theater of Balancing Energy
Geraldine Neuwirth attended American University before moving to LA where she studied under the artist and UCLA Professor Martin Lubner for six years. Her work has been influenced by Elizabeth Murray, Frank Stella, Terry Winters, and Lee Bontencou to name a few. She handles paper in such a way that is only learned over time with a mature hand and a unique vision compiled from a life full of experiences. The works on paper have increased in volume and scale over the years to incorporate wall constructions that create a floating effect. She was awarded a special recognition by the National Museum of Women in the Arts and the Southern California Council in 2002. Neuwirth works out of her studio at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City and resides in NYC. – Hidell Brooks Gallery
Anke Schofield | Balance
Anke Schofield was born in Ithaca, New York, 1972 and was apprenticed as a professional photographer assistant when she was still in the 8th grade. Her father introduced her to the wonders of the camera early in life. Anke took to the form readily and with enthusiasm. during high school Anke apprenticed with a number of artists in the New York area and eventually won a scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design, where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art. Throughout this period she pursued her studies of color theory and painting, continuing to find in these endeavors greater creative stimulus and inspiration than she had known in her photographic work. – Hidell Brooks Gallery
The exhibition runs July 14th – August 31st. Stay tuned for the post on the full exhibition coming to you soon!
