Brevard's Christine Kosiba will lead an invitational exhibit at the TC Arts Council called "As the Crow Flies" from Sept. 22 – Oct. 20 with five other female artists.

The Transylvania Community Arts Council is proud to present this invitational art exhibit with Christine Kosiba, Shannon Whitworth, Hayley Davison, Gina Louthian Stanley, Karen Newgard, and Kirsten Stingle. The public is invited to meet the artists at a reception on Friday, Sept. 22 from 5 – 8 p.m. during Brevard's Fourth Friday Gallery Walk. The exhibit will run at the TC Arts Council from Sept. 22 – Oct. 20. Platt Architecture, PA is the sponsor for this exhibit.

This exhibit was the idea of Brevard clay artist Christine Kosiba. She then invited other female artists to participate.

Shannon Whitworth is a well-known singer/songwriter in Brevard who has partnered with Christine Kosiba in several art exhibits in the past. Whitworth is also a painter who works primarily in acrylic on large canvas. Whitworth uses color, depth, layering, and dimensions in her paintings.

Woodworker Hayley Davison trained at Boston's North Bennett Street School in traditional 17th and 18th century woodworking methods. She combines time-tested traditional joinery such as handcut dovetails and mortise and tenon with the natural beauty of wood to create furniture that will last a lifetime and longer. Her building techniques allow for wood movement- the expansion and contraction that can loosen or even pull apart poorly built joints over time.

Gina Louthian Stanley's recent works are explorations in printing, painting, and mixing media on alternative surfaces with various inks, oils, solvents, hot wax (Encaustic) and cold wax using various techniques to create the "atmospheric" quality, which are symbolic to her works.

Kirsten Stingle's sculptures respond to a modern paradox: a wired and globally connected world that creates individual isolation. Working in the genre of narrative ceramics, Kirsten fuses her richly detailed porcelain figures with mixed-media to further our understanding of ourselves, others, and our place within the contemporary world. She strives to reveal human commonalities, exposing layers of both light and shadow that thrive underneath our polite societal veneer. Stingle also uses antique relics to further the narrative and remind the viewer of the inescapable pull of our shared human history. Her work is part of the permanent collections of the Macon Museum of Arts and Sciences, the Kapp Foundation, the Addams Family Foundation, and Cafesjian Foundation.

The TC Arts Council is located at 349 S. Caldwell Street in Brevard, NC. The TC Arts Gallery is open Monday – Friday from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. For more information call (828) 884-2787 or go to
