Echo: Variations on a Theme at
Meredith College (presented by WCAGA) - Deadline May 25, 2009:

Exhibition Theme:
Echo: Variations on a Theme provides opportunities for artists to explore and elaborate on the endless possibilities of a specific idea or theme as it unfolds and develops in the artist’s mind. Like the variations on a theme in a musical composition, the artist can revise the composition, color, line, texture, shape or media of the original theme in order to further the inherent conversation or dialogue with the viewer. Working in a series rather than on a single presentation of a theme acknowledges the natural process that ideas undergo as they illuminate, develop, change and give rise to related and new ideas.

Ann Roth is gallery director and teaches color theory at Meredith College, Raleigh, North Carolina. She has held curatorial and administrative positions in universities, non-profit arts organizations and commercial galleries since 1976. She has served as Juror for numerous exhibitions, including the Town of Cary's Lazy Daze Arts Festival, Artspace, the Visual Art Exchange and the Raleigh Arts Commission. Ms. Roth is also a weaver. Her hand dyed and woven rugs have been exhibited at the NC State Craft Center, American Craft Council Southeastern Regional Exhibition and in Meredith College art faculty shows. She received her MFA in textile design from the University of Kansas and her BFA from the University of Michigan.
