PEMBROKE — The work of Pembroke artist Shelia Godwin will be on display in the Museum of the Native American Resource Center at The University of North Carolina at Pembroke from Thursday to April 30. The museum is located in Old Main.
An opening reception for “Shelia’s Sunflowers” will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the Native American Resource Center.
The public is welcome to attend and refreshments will be served.
“She made the regalia for her granddaughter, and it is a part of the exhibit,” said Becky Goins, assistant museum director. “This is a multi-media exhibit with everything from textiles, gourds, paintings, drawings and other mixed media pieces.”
Godwin is a graduate of UNCP’s art program and is an art teacher in the Public Schools of Robeson County.

“I feel inspired by nature’s color, found objects and everyday visual beauty,” Godwin said in a statement. “Vincent Van Gogh once said, ‘Color in a picture is like enthusiasm in life.’ I think, sketch, paint and create realistically and from the heart.
“When I begin any design, whether it is a painting, craft project or regalia design, I first visualize what I want to achieve in a piece that will be unique and something that has never been done before or duplicated in its uniqueness … I believe that as an artist you should never stop creating in mind, body or soul.”
