This Third Friday, the Cameron Gallery presents the work of artist and former Scrap Exchange store manager, Julia Gartrell. Gartrell recently returned to Durham following an artist residency at Arrowmont School of Art and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. In her sculpture, Gartrell ‘explores the materiality of identity…using family lore to interrogate Southern craft tradition, story-telling, and ingenuity’. Gartrell’s work incorporates found objects, scavenged materials, quilted scrap fabrics, and clay gathered from sites around Durham County.
