Wyche Gallery Welcomes Guest Painter

Monday, August 19th, 2019

The Wyche Gallery exhibition, “Tastes of Home” features the work of painter, Angela Rowe. The exhibit runs from August 19 through September 20

“Tastes of Home” is about local food and some of the local places that offer an amazing array of fresh food. The paintings explore the movement of food from farm and waters to markets and to table. The paintings also celebrate the beauty of these foods: the intricate colors of blue crabs, the soft violet of turnips. I have enjoyed exploring the colors and shapes of each and every one.

Rowe is a native of Pisgah Forest, North Carolina and currently resides on the coast of NC. “In 1979, I first came to the coast of North Carolina and have since spent more years here than in my native mountains.” says Rowe. “My landlady in Oriental, Miss Irma, had the good grace not to laugh when I asked her how to cut the heads off shrimp and taught me how to catch blue crabs. My collards recipe came from the checkout lady at the grocery store in Burgaw, where I bought my first bunch to cook for my husband. I now wonder how I ever lived without oysters.”

Rowe’s reception will be from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at Southeastern Community College. Learn more about Rowe’s work here.

The Wyche Gallery, located upstairs in A Building, features work by local and regional artists. It offers an educational opportunity to our students and community through exhibitions, visiting artist lectures, and artist workshops. New exhibits are on view every six weeks during the Fall and Spring semesters.

Funding for the Gallery is provided by the SCC Foundation.
