Nora Phillips’ “Threading Colors” is the newest exhibit on display at the Cary Visual Art Gallery at The Cary News. Phillips is a painter and fiber artist who was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She says on her website that she seeks to preserve her Argentinean roots and culture in whatever medium she uses. “I have always been interested in the use of art as a medium for channeling emotions or communicating ideas. In the creative process, I try to incorporate the significance of the work with the material I am working with, whether it be fabric or wood,” she says in her artist statement.
She has exhibited her work at the North Carolina Museum of Art, the City of Raleigh Museum and the Greenville Museum of Art as well as in Triangle galleries and in private art collections.
A reception for Phillips is Friday, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the gallery, which is on the second floor of The Cary theater, 122 E. Chatham St. The gallery is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from noon to 6 p.m. and Fridays from noon to 8 p.m.
