Seth Moskowitz is a Winston-Salem based artist who creates and combines photographic images into artworks that rarely resemble photography or the images that they incorporateHe describes the creation of his work as “an escape from the verbal cacophony of the workaday world - a way to enter a peaceful, magical place that is literally, beyond words.” His artwork focuses on nature and nudes, with a combination of both.

Seth has been a member of Artworks Gallery since 2017, and a member of Associated Artists of Winston-Salem since 2005. His work is aimed at sharing experiences in an emotionally engaging form that causes others to stop, ponder and reconsider what it is that they think they see.

A native of China, Mona Wu immigrated to US in 1970. She studied Chinese painting and calligraphy in Hong Kong then received her BA in Art History from Salem College in 1996. She also studied Printmaking at WFU from 1997-2014. Wu has taught classes and workshops in Chinese art and Printmaking at Salem Community courses, Reynolda House of American Art, and Sawtooth School of Visual Art. In 2003 Wu was awarded as Sawtooth School of Visual Art Winston- Salem Artist of the year. She has been a member of Artworks Gallery since 2003.

  Mona presents a series of monotype prints featuring fall and winter foliage in their natural forms but have been transformed into an emotionally expressive collage work by manipulations in the printing process. Many prints are enhanced with color pencil or ink outlines for more clarity or contrast.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
