The Independent Weekly called Elizabeth Matheson's first exhibition on Cuba a "revelation". Now Matheson, recipient of the North Carolina Award for Excellence in the Arts--the state's highest civilian honor--returns to Craven Allen Gallery with enigmatic new work exploring a country she finds " . . . deeply and soulfully beautiful, filled with both melancholy and irrepressible delight."

Marc Banka has been working for over a year to present the beautiful collection of handcrafted woodturned pieces for Finding The Curve. "The art comes when the natural beauty of the wood is honored by a shape of equal beauty," says Banka. "Bowl turning is very physical, and yet I approach it intuitively. With the bowl on the lathe, I often find that touch is more sensitive than what I can see. I am always seeking the beauty of line - the graceful curve - as I uncover the vessel deep inside the tree." Banka lives in Durham.
