Super Art is Almost

artists will be judged at upcoming exhibition in Kings Mountain

Art competition “Nature Reconsidered” and photography competition “Trail” opened this week at the Southern Arts Society in Kings Mountain. Both are judged shows with cash prizes.

“Nature Reconsidered” is an art exhibition that aims to explore the ever-changing relationship between humans and nature. Artists were asked to create work that references, investigates, challenges and/or celebrates our relationship with the natural world.

There is a wide variety of media featured in the show – painting, drawing, glass, photography and mixed media. Thirty-eight artists from around the region entered 76 pieces of work for this year’s exhibit. While the majority of entries reflect the beauty of our natural world, there are several that play on the impact or interference of man with our environment.

Mary Brown's painting is featured in the art exhibit at the Southern Arts Society in Kings Mountain.

The “Trail” photography exhibit features photos taken on the Gateway Trail over the past two years. There are 13 entries from five photographers in this show. The butterfly garden at the top of the Gateway Trail continues to be a prime spot for great photographs. Much of the trail is surrounded by trees which requires photographers to be patient and search out interesting flora and fauna to capture on film.
