$3 members/ $8 nonmembers
Free for students and teachers

Join us for a conversation with Robert Johnson, whose major body of work is exhibited in Safe Places, which opens at CAM on February 7. It is as if artist Robert Johnson was experiencing the longing for safety amidst the current pandemic when titling his major body of work, Safe Places. In truth, Johnson started this ambitious project three years ago, with the objective to reside and work on site in all 41 North Carolina State Parks. This exhibition premieres more than 80 artworks realized through the artist’s vulnerable investigations. Opening himself to the environment, he shares, “Recording the mood of a landscape is just as important as recording what I see.” This visual storyteller, has chronicled the natural world on three continents in pencil, acrylic, and gouache on paper and canvas for over 40 years. His work echoes influences from late medieval Italian, American Folk, Indian Miniature, Tibetan Thangka, and Balinese painting traditions. Besides large-scale paintings, Safe Places includes his journal and notebook pages: intimate, annotated field observations of plants, birds, along with notes to himself. Johnson reflects, “I hope people seeing Safe Places will understand what an ecologically diverse state we live in. I hope they will feel inspired to go hike the trails in our parks with an observant eye. The more people get out to see the beauty of these areas the more they are likely to care for state parks and will want to preserve what is left of the natural environment.”

At Home Clay Kit

It's 2021!! What does your 21st century family look like? I can remember the Jetsons and their space age city from my childhood when 2021 seemed lightyears away. What do you imagine your family could look like in 2050? Or parents, what did you imagine life would look like in 2021? Make your own set of family characters in clay to mark the beginning of a new year. A kit with clay and underglazes will be provided for work at home. Basic clay techniques will be discussed over the zoom session. Your characters are then painted with underglaze (as shown in the image above) and delivered to CAM for bisque firing. A final clear glaze will also be applied before a second firing is done.
