Work of Susan Carlisle Bell on Display in Dover Memorial Library through Mid-February

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. –A Gardner-Webb University professor of art is revealing her commitment to lifelong learning through her craft.  Susan Carlisle Bell will unveil an exhibit that expresses her continuing education in an exhibit titled “This and That.” The exhibit will be on display now through mid-February in Dover Memorial Library.

“This and That” consists of art in a variety of different styles, media and subject matter that Bell has created over a period of time. The exhibit pieces include figures, landscapes, collages and portraits, and represents a collective continuance of her learning about new techniques and ways to create art.

“I designed the exhibit for students, as an introduction to different media and subject matter,” said Bell.  One of her favorite quotes is from legendary artist Michelangelo’s epitaph that reads, “I am still learning.” She considers this quote fitting for the exhibit because she believes that the exhibit shows that learning is not a destination; it’s a journey.

A reception for the exhibit will be held Thursday, Jan. 31 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Dover Memorial Library.
