Pittsboro, NC - Siglinda Scarpa and two other local artists will open a multi-medium exhibit at ChathamArts Gallery. In addition to Scarpa’s cookware crafted from porcelain, clay and metal, the gallery will feature the forest paintings of Jeff McFall and fused glass jewelry by Nancy Ferguson. Their show runs throughout the month of July, opening First Sunday from 12 noon to 5, continuing Wednesdays through Saturdays 11 to 5, at 115 Hillsboro Street. 542-0394.

Siglinda Scarpa enjoys bringing art into the home through the creation of cooking pots, pitchers, vases, tea pots, bowls and dinnerware that are both beautiful and practical and her colorful sculptures often resemble giant shells opening to the world.

Jeff McFall has enjoyed exploring the outdoors since he was a child in the Midwest; now the process of exploration helps him discover his subjects and capture them on canvas.

Nancy Ferguson says her love of color, abstraction and design led her to the beauty and surprises of fused glass to create one-of-a-kind original pieces for her customers to wear.

Pittsboro shops are open from 12 noon to 5 on every First Sunday of the month, and arts and crafts are also displayed and sold on the streets.
