New Gallery

Artworks Gallery will present a new exhibition, “Organic Impressions,” through July 30 at 564 N. Trade St. in Winston-Salem, featuring the works of Seth Moskowitz and Mona Wu.

Moskowitz is an artist based in Winston-Salem who creates and combines photographs into artwork that rarely resembles photography or incorporates it. He describes the creativity of his work as “an escape from the verbal cacophony of the everyday world of work – a way to enter a magical, peaceful place that literally words cannot.” His artwork focuses on nature, nudes, and combinations of both.

Born in China, Mona Wu immigrated to the United States in 1970. She studied Chinese painting and calligraphy in Hong Kong and then earned a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from Salem College in 1996. She also studied printmaking at Wake Forest University from 1997-2014. Wu has taught classes and workshops in Chinese art and printmaking at Salem Community College, Reynolda House of American Art, and Southout School of Visual Arts. Wu presents a series of monochrome prints showing autumn and winter leaves in their natural forms but transformed into an expressive collage by manipulating the printing process. This exhibition is free and open to the public.

Gallery hours are 11am-5pm Wednesday through Saturday and 1-4pm Sunday. Call 336-723-5890 or visit Artworks-Gallery.org.

New Gallery

The Southeast Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) will host “Will Wilson: Connecting the Dots,” a mid-career retrospective of a religious (Navajo) photographer and community engagement artist, until December 11 at the main gallery at 750 Marguerite Drive in Winston-Salem.

A prolific artist with a wide range of artistic expertise, Wilson offers an experimental artistic insight into technique and approach. His works use cutting-edge technologies combined with historical imaging processes, including augmented reality, drone photography, and color patterns.

This exhibition showcases photography and sculpture from three important work groups created over the past two decades, addressing topics such as environmental justice, institutional racism, and the future of indigenous peoples.

Gallery hours are 10am-5pm on Wednesday, noon-8pm on Thursday, noon-5pm on Friday, 10am-5pm on Saturday and 1-5pm on Sunday.
