Connie Bostic (born 1936) received her formal art education at Gardner Webb Junior College, UNC of Charlotte, and Western North Carolina University. Her work is predominantly in mixed media, and Bostic’s work was included in the October Show at the Asheville Art Museum in 1987.
She has collaborated with Charles Clemmons in dual artistic endeavors that have lead to success and acclaim. In particular the 23-panel procession entitled Recognition of Death, which covers more than 70 feet and is composed of mixed media (such as Styrofoam, rat and chicken write, nails, springs, baby dolls, five-and-dime store butterflies, burnt and melted plastic beads, costume jewelry, and a range of paint from black to fluorescent pink), possessed wide popularity. The combination of their efforts can be described as expressive, vibrant, symbolic and dynamic. The panel here is one of those 23.
