May 23, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until July 27, 2017
The Town of Duck invites the public to view the next exhibit in a series of Rotating Art Shows coordinated by volunteers for the Town of Duck.
Fay Davis Edwards earned a BFA in painting from East Carolina University with her concentration centering on figurative painting in watercolor. She has also studied at workshops with Penland School of Crafts, Pocosin Arts School of Fine Art, and is presently pursuing an MFA at Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine. As resident of a barrier island with an ever-changing environment, her color inspirations come more from the sound and marshes to the west than the ocean. She now displays her work at the Dare County Arts Council Gallery in Manteo, KDH Cooperative in Kill Devil Hills, and Silver Bonsai in Manteo.
For this exhibit, Davis says “I have brought together several of my paintings that explore the mechanics of a line. A line can be a continuous mark on a page, something implied by an arrangement of objects, a definition between colors, or written text. It can also be a sturdy cord or a device for catching fish. My selection of paintings includes a variety of line used to create each image – contour lines, such as for the figures, implied lines like I’ve used in the more abstract pieces, and lines from a book of poetry incorporated in some images. These lines can be playful and loose, or precise and specific, depending on the composition. I love how a linecan be lost and found within a composition. We would be nowhere in art without a line.”
The Fay Davis Edwards Lost and Found: Explorations in Mixed Media show will be on display Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. through July 27th in the first floor Conference Room at Duck Town Hall, 1200 Duck Road. For more information, visit townofduck.com, or call 252.255.1234.
