In keeping with Sawtooth School’s art education mission, the gallery hosts exhibitions that emphasize some aspect of the schools programming. Our creative and diverse faculty is showcased throughout the year in the Davis Gallery and student work is celebrated with an annual exhibit. We also have a gift shop where we sell work created by instructors and advanced students.
The community is invited to visit the gallery. Gallery walk-throughs, led by Sawtooth staff, are available to local school classes and other interested groups. In addition, the community at large is invited to join Sawtooth School for each exhibition opening and related publicized events.
Admission to the gallery is free and open to the public. Our hours of operation are 9 AM to 7 PM Monday-Friday and 9 AM to 4 PM Saturday. We are closed on Sunday.
This student-curated exhibit featuring the words and art of formerly incarcerated offenders is a collaboration between Sawtooth School, Wake Forest Humanities Institute and Department of History, the Winston-Salem Project Re-Entry program of the Piedmont Triad Regional Council, and former offenders who graduated from the program. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.
Artlink’s 34th Annual National Print Exhibition, featuring artwork from the nation’s finest printmakers, will open on January 15 in the Davis Gallery at Sawtooth School for Visual Art in downtown Winston-Salem. Sponsored by Statesville, NC based Speedball® Art Products Company, will run through February 28. Three NC artists are included in this national show: UNC-Wilmington Professor of Studio Art Donald Furst, John Bergmeier from Waxhaw and Brandon Sanderson from Pembroke. All three of these printmakers will attend a public reception on February 6 from 5 to 7 PM. The exhibition and the reception are both free and open to the public, and all artwork is for sale.
The show includes 68 original, hand-pulled prints by forty-six artists from 19 states. Several print techniques ranging from monoprints, intaglio, lithographs and screen prints will be on display. The exhibition was juried by Christine Reising, Professor of Art at Siena Heights University. Reising completed her MFA in printmaking from the University of Windsor, and her diverse art practice includes costume and set design, site-specific installation, printmaking and book arts.
In conjunction with the show, Sawtooth is offering a Print Collage Workshop with Visiting Artist Cynthia Back on February 7 from 10 AM to 4 PM, whose work is also featured in the Artlink show. Beck earned her BFA at Minneapolis College of Art and Design and studied at Wimbledon School of Art and St. Martin’s School of Art in London, England. She currently lives in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania.
