Caitlin Cary is a fiber artist working in a style she calls “Needleprint” by which she creates intricate collages from repurposed upholstery samples and scraps which she affixes to stiffened canvas with various methods of freehand machine sewing.
Cary was awarded the Regional Emerging Arts Residency at Artspace in 2015; her work has been shown in the Raleigh Fine Arts Exhibition, The Block Gallery, The Yadkin Cultural Center, etc., and she is represented by several galleries regionally & nationally.
The Piers series concentrates on the underpinnings of structures and invites the viewer to become meditative about the beautiful and complicated repeating geometric patterns that undergird the built environment.
Caitlin invites you to visit her at the Pocket Gallery (which also functions as her working studio) Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. She is available for commission by appointment.

Janine LeBlanc worked for more than 20 years as a graphic artist. She returned to the graduate program at the College of Design at NCSU, intending to become a textile designer, but found museum work instead.
Using 11o seed beads, and an off-loom peyote stitch technique, she explores textile patterning from the collection of the Gregg Museum of Art & Design. This series is from Timme Corporation’s collection of plush swatches. These swatches date from 1894 until the 1980s. The patterns are a product of their time, giving us a window into what was popular and stylish.
“I enjoy the detachment that happens when objects are separated from their original form and reworked into another medium.” - Janine LeBlanc

Noticing and finding worth in materials or objects that are used in everyday life, then mixing materials to create art that reflects life and its relationships is her goal. Amy makes jewelry from precious and non-ferrous metal sheets, tubes, wires, found objects, and stones, incorporating all of her interests in two-dimensional and three-dimensional artistic expressions.
Growing up in Tulsa, OK, Amy loved experimenting and creating art in many forms and found inspiration in the jewelry made by Native American and Mexican artists. She still loves the natural materials used in that jewelry and how it reflects the landscape and architectural shapes.
As an Art Major at Austin College in Sherman, TX, Amy concentrated on painting, drawing, sculpture, and began incorporating metals into her work. After moving to Raleigh, NC, she enrolled in a jewelry program. Her recent work includes an award-winning mural for Raleigh Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources at Peach Road Park.
She lives and works in North Carolina, where she teaches jewelry and art for the City of Raleigh and NC State Crafts Center.
