Randolph Arts Guild in Asheboro, NC, is calling for entries for its 30th Annual Juried Arts Show to be shown at the Sara Smith Self Gallery, Moring Arts Center in Asheboro, NC.
AWARDS – Best in Show ($200.00), First Place ($150.00), Second Place ($100.00), Third Place ($50.00), and Honorable Mention Ribbons
This year’s juror is John D. Gall, Artist / Printmaker, from Greensboro, NC.
As an artist John D. Gall has been making original prints for over 20 years. He strives to tell stories with his art, whether indirectly as metaphors or directly as narratives. His subjects are often dreamed, imagined, or experienced, as an autobiographical interpretation. For Gall any person, place, time or thing can be a source for inspiration allowing freedom and diversity of subject matter. Gall often works in series, pursuing an idea until as he states, “it has been explored, drained, and pushed to the limits of my interest.”
Born in St. Louis, MO, Gall found is way to North Carolina in the 1970’s. He is a graduate of Guilford College and currently resides with his wife in Greensboro, NC. His work has been featured in many national exhibitions and in 2011 John was invited to exhibit in the Sanbao International Biennial Printmaking Exhibition, Symposium, Workshop, and Tour 2011, at Sanbao Village, Jingdezhen City, China.
