On Thursday, March 4th at 5:30, Black Creek Arts Council will unveil the latest work by acrylic painter Heidi Bond. The opening reception will take place from 5:30 to 7:00 at the Black Creek Arts Center. The opening is free and the public is invited.
"Heidi claims to leave as much out of the paintings as possible," says Bruce Douglas, Executive Director of BCAC. "It's true her lines and palette are minimal, but her work is full of expression and emotion. It is a pleasure to display her work."
Bond and Douglas have come to know each other well through the Artisans of the South Carolina Cotton Trail. Bond was one of the founding members of the guild and Douglas serves as the group's President. "This exhibit is a great example of how a guild can open up opportunities for artists," said Douglas. "It was during the Cotton Trail jury that I decided to push Heidi to apply for a show at Black Creek."
Bond's work will not be the only work on display at the Arts Center in March. Painter Ruth McLeod of McBee will have work on display in the Upstairs Gallery. McLeod is a long-time arts educator in the Pee Dee.
Both painters' work will remain on display through March 26th. The Black Creek Arts Center is open Tuesday through Thursday from 10-1 and 3-6 and on Fridays from 11-3.
The exhibits and opening reception for March are being sponsored by Mark A. Perry, DMD of Darlington Dental Care.
