HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 8, 2009 – Lea Lackey-Zachmann, adjunct professor of art at High Point University, will display her artwork at the “Carolina’s Got Art!” show in Charlotte. The event, held in the historic Atherton Mill, runs through Oct. 30.
Lackey-Zachmann’s work, titled “Roses Open,” is an example from a larger series of paintings informed by microscopic images of flowers. In this case, she has used a rose.
“Love, sorrow, celebration and a sentiment are a few of the thoughts and feelings that roses define,” Lackey-Zachmann says. “Not only are roses used by us visually, but they are also used for anointing, adding to lotions and enhancing olfactory experiences. While the actual rose is familiar, a closer view might allow other insights for us to form about flowers and their place in our lives.”
Four hundred artists from North Carolina and South Carolina – selected from more than 1,000 artists who submitted artwork – will display their works at the show, totaling an excess of 1,100 pieces for consideration at the exhibition. Awards will be presented on the last day of the exhibit.
