Exposing Stitch
Young Harris College’s Campus Gate Art Gallery hosted “The Exposing Stitch,” a body of work by Young Harris College alumna Britney Carroll, ’04. The exhibit opened Thursday, Sept. 30, and was on display through Friday, Oct. 29. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

“The Exposing Stitch” explores gender roles and pushes social boundaries with dynamic interactions between objects, images and viewers. Carroll uses garment making and embroidery to address her own personal apprehensions, emotional tensions and fears.

Carroll earned her associate in fine arts degree from Young Harris College in 2004, where her artwork was featured in the College’s Student Juried Art Exhibition in 2003 and 2004. She earned her bachelor’s degree with a fine art studio concentration and printmaking emphasis from Georgia College and State University in 2007. During her studies, Carroll presented the solo exhibition “lady” at GCSU along with the group exhibition “Success through Scandal” at the Macon Contemporary Art Center in Macon, Ga. She also served as the lead printer for Southern Graphics Council International’s annual project, “SERITYPES: A Genetic Screening Project,” in Madison, Wis.

Carroll earned her M.F.A. in sculpture from Western Carolina University in 2009. During her studies, Carroll’s artwork was featured in numerous group exhibitions throughout South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee. Her work was most recently featured in the solo exhibition “InsideOut” at the Flood Fine Art Center in Asheville, N.C., in April 2010.
