Hearts and Flowers: Two Friends Exhibit. Presented by The Artisan Market at 305
February 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Kimberley Pierce Cartwright and Beth Palmer are excited to show their work together for the first time in this exhibit featuring their shared love of color and design, painting on fabric, repurposing fabric and expressing joy through their art.
Beth and Kimberley are seasoned educators and teaching artists. They both have experience in high profile arenas and their works are collected nationally and internationally. They have been riffing off each other’s creative energies for years and now they bring their vision together in the store through February. Meet them in person for Third Friday, Feb 18, 6-9pm, when they will display additional work at the store!
Kimberley describes herself as a folk artist at heart and is known for her painting, quilting, sewing, and fabric postcards. Currently Kimberley is part of the Nasher Museum of Art exhibit, Reckoning and Resilience: North Carolina Art Now. She is the 2022 Artist-in-Residence at the Resource Center for Women and Ministry in the South. Kimberley is the News and Public Affairs Director at NCCU, and you’ve probably heard her on the radio!
Beth draws on over four decades of being an arts educator and is still active in both the arts education and arts in healthcare fields. Through her artwork she is creating a new imaginative space where those areas connect. Currently, Beth is Artist-in-Residence at the BB&T Bank office building on Gregson St. in Durham, where she’s working on a yearlong Forty-Three Trees Project, designed as an art-based platform to encourage inspiring, intergenerational connections and to uplift those in the nursing profession. Beth is a featured artist and panelist as well as the visual arts coordinator for the upcoming Bull City Summit (https://www.bullcitysummit.com) in late March.
