The Greater Good Gallery in New Bern, NC, will host a reception during ARTcrawl on Dec. 9, 2016 from 5-8pm at 228 Craven Street in New Bern, NC. Lisa Bisbee Lentz will be discussing the features of the upcoming book, “A Brief History of Artists in Eastern North Carolina”. Lentz is working together with local potter/author Ben Alden Watford and digital artist, Jon Derby to compile the creative publication.
Derby announces, “We are calling all creative people including musicians, poets, crafters, artists, galleries, theatres, designers, etc. in eastern North Carolina to participate in the art history book.”
Watford explains the importance of the publication, “Civilizations are judged, not by their wars, not by their politics or their leaders but by the art that they produce. It is your privilege to inform the larger community and future generations of what you attempted to accomplish as an artist, who you are as a person and show all concerned samples of the art that you have produced. As designed, the books will explain who you are as an artist.”
If you would like to participate in the art history book, call 252/649-1712 or visit (http://www.greatergoodgallery.com/history-of-art-book.html).
