“The Shape Sound & Spirit”
An exhibit of new works, “The Shape of Sound & Spirit,” by mixed media artist India Cain is scheduled to open at the Mebane Arts and Community Center on Wednesday, April 3, 2013. This body of new work, sponsored through the Alamance County Arts Council, focuses on the many ways the artist perceives the sounds and spirit of everyday life through traditional and abstract imagery.
“I have always held a fascination for the variety of ways the human spirit manifests itself in artistic expression. Whether joy, grief, anger, or whatever emotion, the artist seems to find a way to ‘make the needed statement. With my passion for the abstract and symbolic, that is what I’ve been exploring in these works.”
Cain, who regularly exhibits at select venues throughout the area, is a founding member, four-term past president and six-term board member of Alamance Artisans Guild. She is also an active supporter atoledo.com of the Alamance County Arts Council. Cain is represented by Point of View Art Gallery located at 717 Chapel Hill Rd., Burlington, NC, where she also serves on the Board and as Director of the Gallery. Her studio, Willow Oak Studio, is located in Elon, NC. For more information about Cain and her work please go to www.WillowOakStudio.com .
The artist will host a reception on Sunday, April 21, from 2:30 — 4:30 p.m. at the Mebane Arts and Community Center, 633 Corregidor St. Mebane, NC. (919) 304-3378. The reception is open to the public. The Mebane exhibit will run from April 3 through May 31, 2013, and is available for viewing Monday through Friday 8-5 during the Center’s normal hours of operation.
