‘Printed’ art exhibit: “Printed,” an exhibit of inflatable sculptures, created by New York artist Benjamin Entner and printed clay artwork by regional and national artists, will be on display March 6-28 in the Caldwell County Arts Council Gallery, 601 College Ave. S.W., Lenoir. An opening reception with light refreshments is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. March 6.
Entner has created a series of sculptural drawings depicting a contemporary figure drawn in the pose and fashion of a historical sculpture. The artist’s own figure is drawn on a nonporous fabric, sewn together with other drawings of the same pose and inflated to a scale and shape similar to the sculpture it references.
“Printed” also features works from 11 printed clay artists from Penland, N.C., to Juneau, Alaska. Artwork ranges from mugs and bowls to decorative works.
Exhibit admission is free 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays. To learn about Caldwell Arts Council events and programs, call 828-754-2486 or visit www.caldwellarts.com.
