Presents "Equine Abstractions" featuring large scale equine abstract paintings, that focus on the monumentality and beauty of the horse as a figure, by Laura Hughes. The show runs from August 26 through  September 24. Opening reception on August 26 from 6 – 9 pm.

Laura Hughes is a Graphic Designer as well as a Fine Artist.  She enjoys designing for the professional business community but she also embraces the self directed challenge of fine art.   She uses the iconic image of the horse as the starting point to get paint on the canvas and as a source for shape, form, and color.  Her images transcend the equine identity and present a monumental approach that is interchangeable with the human figure as an art reference.

Jim Adams is a studio artist based in Hillsborough, NC. His work includes commissioned and exhibited sculpture, furniture, jewelry and architectural elements in metal, stone, wood, glass and up-cycled elements. "Informed by natural elements my  work is born of lines, forms and textures discovered in my walks on the beach and woodlands. My goal is to create an abstracted suggestion of natural forms. Forging steel into jewelry makes way for the illusion of movement and delicacy that contradicts typical notions of blacksmithing and metal sculpture."
