No Boundaries International Art Colony - Bald Head Island, NC

I was invited to be a participating artist in the No Boundaries International Art Colony at Bald Head Island, North Carolina in 2012 During the week long residency I primarily worked on "Officies", a wall installation made of wire and hog casings. This was a wonderful experience that allowed me to focus on my work in an inspiring natural environment surrounded by other artists.

This was the fifteenth art colony held by No Boundaries and eighteen artists from Hungary, Slovakia, Australia, Macedonia and the United States were there to paint, sculpt, design, blow glass and perform on the beautiful Bald Head Island. As usual, artists stayed in Captain Charlie's historic light house keeper cottages. Participating International artists were: Stanislav "Stano" Buban from Slovakia, Eva Mayer from Hungary and also from Slovakia, and Sergej Andreevski from Macedonia. Local participating artists included: Shawn Best, Shannon Rayle Bourne, Michelle Connolly, Bonnie England, Stephanie Hagens, Fritzi Huber, Courtney Johnson, Catherine Lea, Leslie Pearson, Colleen Ringrose, Evelyn Boyd Scott, G. Scott Queen, Glenn Ziemke and NBI co-founders Pam Toll and Gayle Tustin.

The works of art created during these industrious two weeks was on display and open to the public at ACME Art Studios Gallery from November 17-December 3, with an opening reception gala held on Saturday, November 17, with light reception fare and an informal meet and greet session with the artists. 

Acme Art Studios is located at 711 N. 5th Avenue in downtown Wilmington, NC.
