A sculpture by Heea Crownfield, an art instructor at Beaufort County Community College, has been chosen for display in Raleigh as part of an exhibit of works by community college students, faculty and staff statewide.
Crownfield, of Washington, has been working in mixed-media sculpture for over 20 years. She earned a bachelor’s degree in art and religious studies from Guilford College in Greensboro and a master’s degree in fine art with a concentration in sculpture from Clemson University in Clemson, S.C.
She has exhibited her sculpture throughout North Carolina including the Weatherspoon Art Museum and the Greenhill Center for North Carolina Art in Greensboro, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem and the Fayetteville Museum of Art in Fayetteville.
Additionally, Crownfield’s work has been exhibited in exhibits throughout the Southeast and has been recognized by Sculpture Magazine, a publication of the International Sculpture Center.
Her work, “Core,” is one of dozens of works of art on display throughout the year at the Caswell Building, home of the North Carolina Community College System Office. Almost every medium is represented in the collection including paintings, quilts, baskets, photographs, iron and clay sculptures, stained glass and pottery.
