Gallery to host Golitz show of acrylics and pottery; reception July 14

Acausal Coincidences, works by potter Mark Golitz and abstract acrylic painter Lynn Golitz, is the featured show at Sunset River Gallery in Calabash, NC from July 10 – August 19. A reception to meet the artists is scheduled for Friday, July 14 from 5 – 7 p.m. The public is invited and there is no charge.

Husband and wife, Lynn and Mark Golitz share a studio in Morehead City, NC, but work in two separate genres.

Lynn is a self-taught abstract artist who is a continual student of compositional theory, art history, color, and design. She says, “In passages that merge and flow like action in language, my brushwork conveys my sense of seeing concepts in abstracted form. Always aware of the ‘if you see everything, you see nothing’ conceptual approach, I use my canvas to present social conscripts meant to inspire as well as invite thought and conversation.”

Mark describes himself as a functional and contemporary pottery maker. The colors and designs of his work translate from a lifetime of outdoor experiences including a career as a forester and a love of inshore and deep-water fishing. A longtime potter and instructor, he says, “Exploring new forms, colors and firing techniques keep the creativity flowing. In addition to functional designs, I enjoy creating decorative saggar and raku fired vases that infuse the color and luster of interference mica.”

Work by both artists have appeared in Our State, the North Carolina-based publication that celebrates the history, art, and people of the state.
