A quickly recognizable style shows the unique creativity of an artist. Many artists hope to achieve this; and from May 13 to June 30, The Bank of the Arts proudly hosts one such artist's output: Sally Anger. "Moving Colors" opens officially with a reception during ArtWalk on May 13, 5 - 8 pm…and continues throughout the month of June. So what is "Moving Colors" all about?
One of the joys of creativity is the chance to experiment and try new things. Artist Sally Anger shares her love of art experimentation with the delight of seeing new things while traveling. Both were combined into a four-month cross-country trip. She also felt that she needed to do it alone. (Well, not entirely, her dog Theo went along to keep her company).
The trip was inspirational, Sally relates. While crossing the country she made daily paintings, drawings and musings. She came away with greater appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us and for the power of art to focus it.
"Moving Colors" is a show about the adventure – not just the trip, but the inner journey. One of her goals was to chronicle through art not only the beauty witnessed in the people and places she went, but also the emotions they invoke. The theme tying the show together is the concept of “flow” – the flow of many beautiful waters, flow of ideas, of paint, of emotions, of conversation, even of traffic, and ultimately the flow of life through time.
The show will be held May – June 2016 at the Craven County Arts Council and Gallery (Bank of the Arts) at 317 Middle Street, New Bern, NC.
