“Intimate Interiors: Pastels by Jeri Greenberg & Ceramics by Traudi Thornton” is an exciting new exhibit featuring the colorful work of two very different artists.
After many years as a fashion illustrator and sportswear designer, Jeri Greenberg turned her love of graphic design and color into a new and exciting “next act”, working as a full-time painter and teacher. Jeri loves painting still lifes, urban interiors, figures and fabrics, and the occasional landscape as well. Recently relocated, Jeri teaches weekly classes at the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington NC, and holds demos and workshops around the country, as well as jurying national and international pastel exhibits.
Traudi Thornton is a ceramicist currently showing Raku and Stoneware at Art in Bloom Gallery. She was born in Czechoslovakia and raised in Germany. Traudi first studied music at Creighton University before studying ceramics with Henry Soreco at Creighton, the University of Nebraska at Omaha and then moving back to Germany. The artist relocated to Wilmington in 1983. Additionally, Traudi completed a Raku workshop with Paul Soldner in 1974 at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
Along with this exhibit our photographic feature will be, “The Water of Life: Photography by Allison Bowman”. This is a showcase of impactful prints created during the Covid-19 pandemic. Allison’s photography highlights the unique experience we all shared in the isolation. While I lived in the Outer Banks through the course of the pandemic, the manifestations of these experiences seem to be idealized in the forms and relationships I built with the bodies of water around me. Please enjoy “The Water of Life”.
