The Enterable Mirror

Art Show, Art Talk
Water paintings by former adjunct professor Chrys Riviere-Blalock will be on display Aug. 6 through Sept. 28 in the Tucker Student Center Gallery at Gardner-Webb University, 110 S. Main St., Boiling Springs, N.C. The exhibit, titled “The Enterable Mirror,” features landscape scenes. “My process of painting is simple: seeing and responding,” Riviere-Blalock shared. “What I see is exhilarating—vast space, a robust and wondrously alive landscape that is simultaneously as delicate and fragile as each spring’s new leaf. The transience of this physical environment becomes a mirror for an inner reality, a metaphor for the awareness of human mortality coexisting with the exuberance of life.” A reception is planned for Aug. 30 from 4 to 6 p.m., with an artist talk at 5 p.m. Riviere-Blalock studied in New York at Parsons The New School for Design where she met and was greatly influenced by painter Alice Neel, and earned a master’s degree in art at Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. She has lived and taught in small colleges in western North Carolina for 25 years and taught in travel/study undergraduate programs in Paris and Provence. Currently an adjunct professor at Isothermal Community College in Spindale, her paintings have been featured in various galleries in High Point, Raleigh and Greensboro, N.C., as well as Atlanta, Ga., and other areas.
