An Invitation, 2021
Artist: Carrie Leigh Dickey
About the Artwork: This artwork was inspired by Mill Creek and Wetland beside Historic Bethabara Park. Here we are invited into the splendor of the wetland. If we accept the invitation our eyes will enjoy lotus, cattails, duckweed, Jewel-weed, and rushes which make their home within the wetland. What colorful beauty! From the body of work entitled “cur•rent [ kur-uhnt ] flow marked by force or strength.” With this work, I am exploring the currents that shaped the cityscape of Winston-Salem, as well as, the currents that flow today within the city.
