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.
Sawtooth School is happy to accommodate groups that wish to view our facility and galleries. To ensure the best experience for our visitors and for our students, we require that tours for groups of six or more be arranged in advance. Group tours are available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 336-723-7395 to schedule your visit.
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.
The shop showcases artwork from our accomplished faculty and advanced students. New work arrives frequently from our current faculty and with the addition of new instructors. Please visit often, we’re certain you’ll find great gifts created by our local artisans/instructors. Ask us about gift certificates! We offer 10% off purchases in the Sawtooth gift shop on Mondays to our members (except during Deck the Halls).
Our hours of operation are 9:00 AM to 6:30 PM Monday-Friday and 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Saturday. We are closed on Sunday.
This unfolding exhibition features artwork from New Jersey-based artist Leo Morrissey, showcasing the breadth of his work. Leo’s work explores the depth of meaning that emerges with the repeated production of images over time, and an integral part of his practice is site-specific. His work has been included in exhibits at the Museum of Modern Art, Taiwan Museum of Art, Monash Gallery in Australia, Galleria del Carbone in Ferrara, Italy and more.
The exhibition will be curated by Paul Bright, director of the Hanes Art Gallery at Wake Forest University. During the course of the exhibition, Sawtooth, with the help of Bright and student assistants, will unpack and reveal the artist’s daily art projects from his eight years living in Winston-Salem.
When the exhibition opens January 18, only about half of the works will be displayed, with the remaining works brought out and presented as the exhibition transpires, through February 22.
The exhibition and related events are free and open to the public.
Artists on Art: A Dialogue with Leo Morrissey
Friday February 1 | 6 – 7 PM
Friday, February 1 | 7 – 8 PM
Starting March 1, we’ll exhibit the watercolor figure paintings of internationally exhibited artist, Russell Belue, in our Redding Corridor Gallery. To kick off the exhibition, we will be holding an Artist Talk and Demo with Russell that evening. On Saturday, March 2 he will be teaching a Watercolor Figure Workshop with a live model from 11 – 4:30pm.
“I find painting the figure to be something that I will never exhaust. The possibilities are endless, and everyone can relate to the human form. There is an emotional response that takes place between the viewer and the painting that I’m interested in.” — Russell Belue
