Opening Reception: Friday, October 5th, 6pm-9pm
Please join Charlene Newsom, Nancy Lloyd, and Allie Farlowe in honoring inspired work from the estate of celebrated abstract expressionist, Horace Farlowe (1933-2006).
Throughout Horace Farlowe’s fifty-year career, his passion and drive to create was immeasurable. His paintings and sculpture capture a sense of spontaneity and reflect a lifelong interest in architectural concepts. Although Farlowe exhibited internationally, he was consistently engaged with projects and commissions in his home state of North Carolina. His work is found in numerous private and public collections, including the NC Museum of Art and the Mint Museum.
“My first studies in art were in a school of architecture. This introduction to art was responsible for many years of research trying to create a sculpture that is a reflection of me and not an obvious influence by others. Now I find forms related to architecture and the space that architecture defines is of primary importance to me. As with all artists, I am constantly in search of a ‘new’ sculpture. For me change is necessary for growth in my work. This change can be instant or it can take place over a long period of time. It is not significant when we seek new directions, but it is important that we be aware that new directions are a must in art. The most essential advice anyone can give to an artist is to always ‘keep working.’”
