Pamlico Rose to host art exhibit

The Pamlico Rose Institute will host a cumulative exhibit for its first artist-in-residence.

The artist-in-residence, Sue Kammers, works with glass to create stained glass pieces of art. She worked with Veterans Affairs as a nurse supporting women Veterans for 13 years. 

“My stained glass work started roughly 20 years ago when my sons moved away from home to go to college,” Kammers said of her artwork. “I lean toward garden art and love the sun coming through a piece of glass or prism. My studio and working with glass is my happy place.” 

The artist-in-residence program lasts six months and is open to all aspiring artists that are women veterans, active military members or current and former health care workers who worked primarily with veterans. The program requires the artist to create at least 10 pieces of art during the residency, one of which must be provided to PRI for display around the center. Additionally, artists are expected to give one public presentation about their work during the penultimate month of the residency, provide updates on their work to be posted on Pamlico Rose social media pages and provide artwork for an exhibit at the end of the residency.  

Benefits for artists interested in the residency program include funding and resources provided by Pamlico Rose for the artist to use for materials, social media posting on all of PRI’s pages and assistance in setting up exhibits and virtual galleries. 

The exhibit will be held at the Pamlico Rose Institute on Friday, June 25 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. All pieces are for sale and any money made will be paid directly to Kammers. Refreshments will be provided and the exhibit will be displayed in a virtual exhibit on the PRI website.
