Glass artists John Littleton and Kate Vogel 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.




Thesis Lecture: Faces of Courage

Thursday, August 10, 6:30 – 8:00 PM


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


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.”
