Meet the Artists at the Gallery Hop : Friday, Sept. 7, 7 - 10pm

Artworks Gallery presents a three-person exhibit entitled, "Three Women: Three Visions" with drawings and prints by Emily Drew Mash, and watercolors by Beverly Noyes, and mixed media paintings, drawing and glass works by Betti Pettinati-Longinotti.

Emily Drew Mash studied printmaking at WFU and has been exhibiting locally for several years. Most of her work combines elements of nature, science, and religion. Her current series is titled "Redeeming the Time." The theme, which comes from the book of Ephesians, encourages one to buy up or use every opportunity in life. These pieces are mixtures of hand pulled monoprints, painting, and quick sketch-like drawings which add a sense of energy and urgency to the series.

Beverly Noyes's watercolor series was inspired by the shape of the tea pot and its relationship to other related objects. She found the shapes and subtle colors created by light changes
and perspective changes to be an interesting subject to paint. A native of Minnesota, she has lived in Winston-Salem since 1971. She earned an MFA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a BS in Art Education from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota. She taught painting at the Sawtooth Center for Visual Arts in Winston-Salem throughout the 1990’s.

Betti Pettinati-Longinotti explains her pieces: "embracing the mission of the Guerrilla Girls, a feminist art group fighting for the rights of women artists, past and present, this investigation of work seeks to recognize and celebrate the contributions of these ‘she-roes’. Specifically my "Homage to Georgia" grows out of a seductive fixation on women artists whose lives were muted by the hegemony of their male dominated world. Working with multi media redefines pre-conceived connotations of what a painting, drawing or collage might be. Longinotti received a BFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art and her MA from the University of the Arts/ Philadelphia, 1987, in Art Education with a studio major in Glass; and most recently an MFA in the Visual Arts from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, June 2012.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
