"From the Fire" John Littleton and Kate Vogel

Sunday, 8/6/2017
2:30PM-3:45PM  
ILLUSTRATED LECTURE:“Fused Expression, A Collaboration”

Glass artists John Littleton and Kate Vogel (http://www.littletonvogel.com/about.html) will discuss their collaborative work, currently on view in CAM’s exhibition From the Fire (on view through Aug. 27), their inspiration and process in this overview of their careers. Since 1979 they have lived in the vibrant Toe River Arts community that surrounds Penland School of Crafts in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Their work has taken many directions over the years and at the core of it all is their collaboration and shared lives. John and Kate's blown works are an exploration of soft forms that began in the early years of their partnership. The fabric-like forms are as fanciful and fluid as hot glass. Over time, the soft forms have come to mimic the playful relationship of their collaboration and family life. CAM Members and Students with valid college ID: $10.00, Non-Members: $15.00 (tax and fees not included). Purchase seats on CAM’s website, by phone and at CAM’s Visitor Services desk. Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall & Brown Wing.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
John Littleton and Kate Vogel’s collaboration began shortly after they met at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Since 1979 they have lived in the vibrant Toe River Arts community that surrounds Penland School in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Their work has taken many directions over the years and at the core of it all is their collaboration and shared lives.

John and Kate's blown works, are an exploration of soft forms that began in the early years of their partnership. The fabric-like forms are as fanciful and fluid as hot glass. Over time, the soft forms have come to mimic the playful relationship of their collaboration and family life.

Their cast work includes faces and hands, and combines techniques from hot and cold worked glass. The process of direct casting gives a sense of super-realism and is a powerful tool for communicating and recording their interrelationship with the world.

John and Kate are called on to give lectures at art museums and universities, and have taught casting and blowing at Penland School of Crafts. Their work is in public and private collections in the United States, Europe, and Japan, including institutions such as the Art in Embassies Program; The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY; Glasmuseum Ebeltoft in Denmark; The White House Collection at The Clinton Library in Little Rock, AR; High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA; and the Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC.

They have been included in articles in "The Washington Post", "The New York Times", "The Christian Science Monitor", "CBS Sunday Morning" and "NC Weekend UNC-TV". They are featured artists in the film "The Blue Ridge Parkway - America's Favorite Journey" shown at the Blue Ridge Parkway Destination Center.

Thesis Lecture: Faces of Courage

Thursday, 8/10/2017
6:30PM-8:00PM  
Sharon Wozniak-Spencer, artist in resident with The Hope Center and CAM intern has worked the past year and a half with those in need in the Wilmington downtown area at The Hope Center and Walking Tall Wilmington. The series that she has created is called “Faces of Courage”. Sharon is attending the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, completing her MFA program in figurative painting this August. The series she has completed is based on those who are in need in the Wilmington area.

“As someone who has studied realistic figurative painting throughout graduate school, I have realized that what excites me as an artist is bringing attention to the positive work of our community. I try to create my portraits and figurative work in a way that speaks to those who observe them. My work deals with reality in a way that has a positive impact on others. Before creating my art, I get to know those in need, homeless, displaced, and the volunteers. The work that I have created has a sense of dignity, beauty, and hope.”

Admission is free of charge, donations are appreciated for the Living Arts Scholarship Fund
