The show will be hosted by the Marietta-Cobb Museum, from Saturday through Dec. 15.
Stingle takes the tradition of Southern storytelling far beyond ordinary nostalgia with her deep, edgy contemporary works.
Her sculptures combine richly detailed porcelain figures with vintage relics and found artifacts, challenging us to interpret them and understand more about ourselves in the process.
As a storyteller, Stingle believes that the shadows in our lives are not something to hide, but rather define who we are.
Her ceramic narratives depict the soul’s struggle towards identity in an age characterized by isolation.
The wife and mother of two has been getting more recognition about her work in recent years with shows at the Smithsonian, workshops and talks and is represented by a number of galleries in the Southeast.
There will be a preview reception Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m.
Stingle will also give a lecture at the museum Oct. 26 at 5:30 p.m. and she will host a two-day workshop called Narrative Potential of the Torso Oct. 25 and 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Marietta-Cobb Museum of Art is at 30 Atlanta Street, Marietta.
