Don’t you just wish you were strolling through the W-S Downtown Arts District for the “DADA 1st Friday Gallery Hop” on March 4th from 7-10 PM?! We will kick off a 25th Anniversary Hop season, so wear a bit of (DADA) green and visit! Our sidewalks will be open and the streets will be blocked on Sixth and Trade! 

Meander through the delightful art galleries, studios and shops in the district then celebrate by lifting a glass at Fiddlin’ Fish, Broad Branch, Sixth and Vine or enjoy a treat from Moji or La Luz and Co! 

DADA Member locations participating in the March Hop are asked to put a shamrock in their window, or on their door so all will know who will be open. DADA’s shamrock will go up Feb 25th! 

DADA headquarters (604-A Trade St) will be playing Celtic music and you just may hear a fiddle or two. We will be wearing DADA GREEN and our eyes WILL be smiling! 

Stop by and say hello to the artists of the Winston-Salem Downtown Arts District and join in by creating your own work of art at our street chalk station!

Artworks Gallery Presents

“Transitioning”, Alix Hitchcock and Lea Lackey-Zachmann
Exhibit Dates: February 27 - March 26, 2022
Reception: Sunday, March 6, 2 - 4pm

Alix Hitchcock is exhibiting works on paper involving the use of various kinds of hand-pulled prints made into collages and abstract paintings on paper. These works are executed with liquid inks using a spontaneous, linear style.  Some of these colorful works display abstracted tree forms in transparent layers. Others include hints of human forms with gestural lines implying movement through time and space. 

Hitchcock is interested in the symbolism of humans struggling with their place in the Natural World. This struggle is conveyed with the use of ambiguous use of shapes and spaces, and a sense of everchanging transparencies and implied movement.

Hitchcock received her MA in painting from NYU, and her BFA in printmaking and painting from UNC-G. She is a retired Instructor in Drawing at WFU. She was the W-S Artist of the Year in 1998, and is a founding board member of Artworks Gallery, a cooperative gallery in W-S. She has exhibited widely in N.C., and in shows in Kentucky, Virginia, South Carolina, New York City, and Wyoming.

Lea Lackey-Zachmann is exhibiting paintings, prints and drawings that represent an exploration of Transitioning.

The large prints come from a continuing appreciation for trees, the 3-d paintings are based on the discovery of relationships amongst three dimensional and color representations of thoughts and emotions.  The small prints with drawing additions are exploring the human relationship with all things nature as they relate to mythological stories of gods and goddesses.

This exhibit shows a mixture of past thoughts and a beginning of new ideas for discovery and growth in my work, Transitioning.  Perhaps this time of covid is requiring a transition of sorts for all of us? Lea Lackey-Zachmann has an BA in Art Education, a graduate teaching certificate in Art Education and an MFA in painting.  A founding member of Artworks Gallery, she taught art at the college level for over 30 years and continues to paint, make prints and explore video. The Natural world has been a focus of her art since childhood.  She lives in Winston-Salem with her husband, two dogs and a cat.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
