Art @ the
Wall at the Carteret County Public Library in Beaufort will
feature a new series of paintings by Sally Anger called, The
Pale Blue Dot. The Pale Blue Dot show is inspired by Carl
Sagan’s description of the earth as seen from the Voyager 1
space probe from 3.7 billion miles away, just as it was about to
leave our Solar System. In it the Earth’s apparent size is less
than a pixel, our planet appears as a tiny dot against the
vastness of space.
Beaufort artist Sally Anger, known for her large paintings of
faces, was inspired by this concept to create a series of
paintings inspired by our planet. Some of the canvases are
round, and have abstracted images of the earth. Others are
inspired by the concept of “flow” – the flowing of water, of
colors, of ideas, of emotions, of the planets through space and
ultimately the flow of life through time. Sally Anger grew up in
the coastal town of Beaufort, NC. She left her career as a
nutritionist in 2003 to follow her lifelong dream of art and has
never looked back. Her work will be on display at the Carteret
County library for the month of October, 2017. For more
information about the artist, find Sally Anger Artworks @
www.sallyanger.com "What was any art but a mould in which to
imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life
itself - life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to
stop, too sweet to lose." ~Willa Cather
Showcase will feature Melissa Bennett, a writer, artist, and
indie filmmaker hailing from Carteret County, North Carolina.
Melissa has been creating all kinds of 3D art since high school,
but she most recently fell in love with the art of book folding
and 3D paper crafts, mainly because she’s an avid book lover and
a big fan of origami. She loves recycling old books and turning
them into works of art. She also finds the process relaxing and
sees it as a form of meditation.
