Work by Randy Shull

To celebrate the 32nd year of their partnership with professional artists of the Southeast and to showcase those artists for the Democratic National Convention attendees from across the country, Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy has organized an exhibition of artwork by 53 Southeastern artists in its’ gallery space at 401 North Tryon Street – five blocks from the Arena. The exhibition features works on paper to large scale paintings, ceramic wall relief to 7 foot sculptures.

In addition to the exhibition, a continual showing of Jem Cohen’s “Gravity Hill Newsreels: Scenes of New York City Fall 2012″ will be featured on a monitor in the gallery space. It is a series of short films focusing on the Occupy Wall Street movement and the various actions in Zuccotti Park in NYC last fall.

The June issue of “Film Comment” magazine reviewed the “Gravity Hill Newsreels” saying: “Cohen’s atmospheric shorts distinguish themselves by an alert but restrained formal register – carefully constructed, intuitively cut, strikingly composed. (Cohen has the ability to concoct on-the-scene frames that are highly refined but not constricted, poised but not posed). The videos are observational, ethnographic even – and are less expository dispatches than airy patchworks, rhythmical distillations of Occupy as it was on the ground.”

For more information about the exhibition and the film showing, contact Christie Taylor, Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy by calling 704/334-3799 work or 704/574-4265 cell.

Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy in Charlotte, NC, will present the last installment in its Art and Philosophy Series, featuring Eric Mullis, Phd, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Queens University of Charlotte.

Mullis will discuss – Everyday Aesthetics/Ethics

As we discussed in the last series, it is clear that aesthetic experience can take place anywhere. In light of that discussion we’ll consider the aesthetic properties that show up in everyday life and will consider what bearing the appreciation of those properties has on the environment. Does it make sense to talk of a “green aesthetic”?

Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy in Charlotte, NC, Offers Talk by Ann Conner – Feb. 3, 2011

January 22, 2011

Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy in Charlotte, NC, is offering another installment in its Conversation with Artist series on Feb. 3, 2011, from 6:30-8:30pm with Ann Conner: WOODCUT PRINTMAKING.

“Working in woodcut always is a challenge as the grain of the wood is so captivating. My images are, in many ways, a response to this. I like working with the natural material wood, however using it in a high-tech manner. Woodcut is the oldest form of printmaking, and it continues to have relevance for me. I approach the medium nontraditionally by drawing mechanical images with a high-speed power chisel. Woodcut is a traditional art form. In my work however you will not see the gouges and cuts typical of woodcut. I try to conceal the process,” say Conner.

Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy in Charlotte, NC, Offers Conversation with Artist Phil Garrett – Dec. 9, 2010

December 1, 2010

Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy in Charlotte, NC, is offering another installment in its Conversation with Artist series on Dec. 9, 2010, from 6:30-8:30pm with MONOTYPE: The Painterly Print with Phil Garrett.

Garrett, painter, printmaker and founder of King Snake Press will describe and demonstrate this spontaneous and dynamic approach to printmaking. The monotype offers a way of working that can be fluid and very painterly. Images can be developed in a relative short space of time and because the plate retains a thin layer of ink after being printed, (the so called ghost image) it is easy to modify the image and work sequentially.

A light dinner and wine will be served. Reservations are required and the event is limited to 30 people. Admission is $10 per person.

You may reserve your space by responding to (info@hodgestaylor.com), payment by cash or check at the door.
