The Mountain Calls: Echoes of Appalachia

Exhibit on view April 21 – June 4, 2021

Artists: Stacey Pilkington Smith, Jenna Webb, Robert Webb, Crystal Whitesides

Through this body of work, the artists strive to capture the life, magic, and forgotten ways of the Southern Appalachian people through various art mediums. Stacey Pilkington-Smith’s mastery of mixed media beautifully explores folk magic and myths. Robert Webb uses his skill of the lens to capture photographic works artfully. In comparison, Jenna Webb creates her imagery with lino-printing and green crafting following the same theme. Crystal Whiteside translates her visions into eco prints and mixed media works of art. The artist’s results immerse viewers in an echo of life in the mountain hollers, root them to our now, and give slight glimpses into our future.
