Arts Briefs: Organic art, a brass band and a day for dogs | Arts & Theatre


New exhibit

Artworks Gallery will present a new exhibit, “Organic Impressions,” from June 26 to July 30 at 564 N. Trade St., Winston-Salem, featuring work by Seth Moskowitz and Mona Wu.

The exhibit will be part of the next Gallery Hop from 7 to 9 p.m. July 1.

An artist reception will be from 2 to 4 p.m. July 10.

Moskowitz is a Winston-Salem-based artist who creates and combines photographic images into artwork that rarely resembles photography or the images that they incorporate. He describes the creation of his work as “an escape from the verbal cacophony of the workaday world — a way to enter a peaceful, magical place that is literally, beyond words.” His artwork focuses on nature and nudes and combinations of both.

A native of China, Mona Wu immigrated to the U.S. in 1970. She studied Chinese painting and calligraphy in Hong Kong then received her bachelor of arts in art history from Salem College in 1996. She also studied Printmaking at Wake Forest University from 1997-2014. Wu has taught classes and workshops in Chinese art and Printmaking at Salem Community College, Reynolda House of American Art and Sawtooth School of Visual Art. Wu presents a series of monotype prints featuring fall and winter foliage in their natural forms but have been transformed into an expressive collage work by manipulations in the printing process. This exhibition is free and open to the public.
