Variations: Work During the Pandemic
September 3 @ 9:00 am - October 15 @ 5:00 pmFree
“VARIATIONS: Work During the Pandemic” will feature artwork by Thomas Thielemann of Lenoir NC. The exhibition opens September 3, 2021 and runs through October 15, 2021.
Thomas Thielemann and his wife Lynda Lea Bonkemeyer met as graduate students working on their MFA at Radford University in Virginia (yes, Virginia is for lovers). They spent their first year of marital bliss in Atlanta, Georgia, living in a Midtown apartment the size of a shoe (but with very attractive shoelaces). On December 31, 1999 they quietly snuck into the town of Lenoir, North Carolina an hour or two before Y2K (no, it was not the end of the world as they knew it) and they have lived there ever since. They share a private studio with their dog Susie and are represented by several galleries around the Southeast and Washington DC. Together, they are raising their very charismatic son Auguste, who has put their heads on the moon.
Visit moonheadstudio.com to view the work of Thielemann/Bonkemeyer.
The Caldwell Arts Council is located at 601 College Ave SW in Lenoir, NC, and is open to the public Tuesday through Friday from 9am to 5pm.
