This week: Opening reception and artist talk for our special summer exhibition, Rosemary Stiefel: New Work. Join us on Saturday, July 19, at 4 pm for wine, hors d'oeuvres and a talk by one of Highlands' foremost artists, Rosemary Stiefel. Inspired equally by textiles--especially quilting, which she took up at the age of 5 with the help of her grandmother--and nature, Stiefel has created a stunning group of new works over the last year. These include monumental paintings as well as smaller works on paper, mixed-media works and monoprints.
Stiefel was a founding member of the Golden Easel Gallery in the original Underground Atlanta in 1969. She has had solo exhibitions at Common Cup Gallery (Atlanta, 1976), the Chattahoochee Valley Arts Association (1983), the Swan Coach House Gallery (Atlanta, 1991), and Summit One Gallery (Highlands, 2002). She has been featured in numerous group exhibitions, including four group invitational shows at the Bascom-Louise Gallery and several Georgia Watercolor Society exhibitions, including touring shows. She has won awards from the Bascom (1987) and the Georgia Artist Show (1984) and has taught painting at both the Bascom and the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
All year round, Chivaree presents a curated, rotating selection of work by over 50 Southeastern artists and artisans, with a special focus on western North Carolina. In addition to paintings, sculpture and works on paper, we offer ceramics, art glass, artisan jewelry, studio furniture, wood, and folk/Outsider art by self-taught Southern masters including Jimmy Lee Sudduth, Mose Tolliver, Minnie Adkins, Lorenzo Scott, James Harold Jennings and Willie Massey.
