The Yadkin Cultural Arts Center welcomes triad artists, Kevin Calhoun and Bryce Hauser to display their works in the Welborn Gallery from September 9 through November 9, 2020. This exhibit aptly named “A Collaborative Experience,” will feature large scale painted canvases by Kevin Calhoun, as well as metal sculptures by Bryce Hauser.
Kevin Calhoun is a Winston-Salem based artist and lighting designer who works in oil, acrylic, enamel, and spray paint to create dynamic paintings and drawings. Calhoun’s vibrant canvases are filled with organic forms and vivid colors. Samples of his work can be found on his artist Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/
Bryce Hauser is a metal Sculptor out of Winston Salem who believes that Iron has been integral to the development of contemporary society and a true indicator of where we stand today as a whole. Each of the works made by him is an exploration of a reaction cast piece of Iron and a similar forged and fabricated improvisation of steel. The juxtaposition of these elements is to unite the ancient, ritualistic and archaic with the contemporary world. He believes that in finding similarities and moments of tension and texture between the timeless and the contemporary we enter a dialog with ourselves and the world leading to greater understanding and empathy.
Join us for a virtual reception over Facebook Live on September 10 at 5pm

Since 2013, Caitlin Cary has been working in a medium for which she coined the term “Needle Print,” a form of fabric collage in which cloth is affixed by machine stitch to paper or other rigid backing. The works in her upcoming show, tentatively titled “Piers” will focus on the patterns and spatial complexity
of the undergirdings of buldings, bridges, docks, dams.
In 2015, Cary was awarded the Regional Emerging Artist residency at Artspace in Raleigh, and maintains a studio/gallery there now. Her work has been exhibited at The Miriam Block Gallery, the Frankie G. Weems Gallery at Meredith College, The Raleigh Fine Arts Exhibition, The Cameron Village Regional Library, The Wilkesboro Art Gallery and others, and her work is prized by regional and national collectors. Cary is represented by the Yard Dog Gallery in Austin, TX, the At Home Gallery in Greensboro, and she available for commissioned works by appointment.
