Onslow Art Society's 53rd Spring Art Show
Charity Valentine, Coordinator, Associate of Fine Arts at Pitt Community College received her BS in fine Art (Cum Laude) from Colorado State University in Pueblo and her MFA (Magna Cum Laude) from the School of Art & Design at East Carolina University.
Ms. Valentine is currently employed at Pitt County Community College where she has, since 2009, essentially built the school’s Fine Art program from scratch. In that time, she has developed a university transfer program that includes photography, painting, sculpture, drawing, metals, art history, design, printmaking, textiles, watercolor, computer art, and more. In four years, the program has grown from 35 students to almost 120.
In her personal work, Ms. Valentine is identified as a photographer, but prefers to define herself as a maker. While teaching several levels of photography at PCC, she also finds the time to conduct workshops in encaustic and pine-needle basket weaving, and has lately begun to work in metals - specifically enameling.
She has exhibited nationally in the Westmoreland Art Juried Show in Latrobe, PA, at Mills Pond House Gallery in St. James, NY, Slocumb Galleries in Johnson City, TN, and at Eagle Art Gallery in Murray, Kentucky. Regional exhibits include the Gregg Museum of Art & Design in Raleigh, Rocky Mount Arts Center, Community Council for the Arts in Kinston, and the Wellington B. Grey, Burroughs Welcome, and Emerge galleries in Greenville.
