"Story as Jewel: Metalworks by Charles Pinckney" Exhibition at Lyndon House Arts Center
Thursday, June 8, 2023
The Lyndon House Arts Center is pleased to announce the opening of Story as Jewel: Metalworks by Charles Pinckney, on June 8, 2023. This exhibition is on view through September 1, 2023. The reception is Thursday, June 8, 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
Charles Pinckney has been working with metal for almost 50 years. He is primarily a self-taught artist, born in South Carolina. He creates jewelry and small sculpture from metal, stones, bone, and wood. A former radio personality and constant story-teller, Charles describes his imagery as “abstractly related to memories of childhood.” His artworks consider “patterns generated as lives intertwine, the ebb and flow of emotional and personal connections over time.”
Charles Pinckney has attended Arrowmont and Anderson Ranch as both student and teacher. His work has appeared in several publications, including Southern Living and Ornament Magazines. He has received grants from Georgia Council for the Arts and Tula Foundation Gallery. Recently, the Georgia Museum of Art featured his jewelry in a solo exhibition.
Charles Pinckney will be talking about his work on Saturday June 17 at 2:00 pm.
All exhibitions are free of charge and open to the public. Exhibitions are on view during regular gallery hours Tuesday and Thursday 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Lyndon House Arts Center is closed on Saturdays when there is a UGA home football game day.
