Greensboro, NC, artist Annette Bartlett-Golden will host her 5th annual Holiday Open House Art Show, Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013, from 1-5pm at 4101 Lawndale Place in Greensboro, near the Natural Science Center. The event will feature a selection of her artwork and wooden items crafted by Steve Golden.

The show will include refreshments and holiday music and a drawing for a FREE painting by Bartlett-Golden. Parking is available on the street. Admission is free.
Bartlett-Golden works in oil and watercolor to paint of a variety of subject matter: local and foreign landscapes, exotic and domestic animals, still lifes, and more. Recently, she began exploring collage created from colorful paper and several will be in the show.
An artist and art teacher for over 15 years, Annette Bartlett-Golden uses crisp lines and rich, vibrant colors to impart a sense of immediacy, vivacity and optimism to her paintings. Images of nature, especially mountains, infuse all her work and contribute to the feeling of vitality. Working mainly from her own photographs, Bartlett-Golden often combines aspects from many photos into one composition. She also uses clients’ photographs to create commissioned paintings.
A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, she holds a Bachelors of Fine Arts. Her work has been shown locally and is in private collections both in the US and abroad. She will also offer private art classes for children and adults this spring.
In addition to Bartlett-Golden, woodworker Steve Golden will also be participating in the show this year. His featured work will include some carved and turned pieces.
Golden has been building traditional handmade furniture for 27 years. In 2010 he was selected as one of America’s best and listed in the Directory of Traditional American Crafts. Golden uses pole lathe turning, green woodworking, and other aspects of traditional furniture construction in his work.
