Greensboro, NC, Artist Annette Bartlett-Golden Will Host Her 7th Annual Holiday Open House Art Show – Dec. 6 and 12, 2015

November 29, 2015

Greensboro artist Annette Bartlett-Golden will host her 7th annual Holiday Open House Art Show on Sunday, Dec. 6, from 1-5pm and Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015, from 10am to 5pm at 4101 Lawndale Place in Greensboro, NC, near the Natural Science Center.

Note cards and paintings will be offered for sale.  The show will include refreshments, holiday music, and a drawing for a FREE print by Bartlett-Golden. Parking is available on the street. Admission is free.

Bartlett-Golden uses crisp lines and rich, vibrant colors to impart a sense of immediacy, vivacity and optimism to her oil paintings and watercolors on a variety of subject matters: local and foreign landscapes, exotic and domestic animals, still lifes, and more. For the last year, Bartlett-Golden has been challenging herself to hone her artistic skills by creating more paintings than she has in past years. In the last two years, she has repeatedly participated in painting challenges with the goal of completing one painting every day for a month, which has resulted in a large body of recent paintings, many of which were exhibited in a solo show at Pennybyrn at Maryfield which ran from August through October.  These works and other paintings from recent months will be a prominent part in Bartlett-Golden’s Holiday Open House this year. An artist and art teacher for over 15 years, Annette Bartlett-Golden’s work is in private collections both in the US and abroad.

For more information about the show, please contact Annette Bartlett-Golden at 336/288-0307 or by e-mail at (mountaincanvas@gmail.com).

Artstock the 18th Annual Artist Studio Tour Takes Place in Greensboro, NC – Oct. 10 and 11, 2015

September 18, 2015

Artstock-Artists-Studio-Tour

Artstock will celebrate its 18th Annual Artist Studio Tour throughout the greater Greensboro, NC, area the weekend of Oct. 10 and 11, 2015. Studios will be open on Saturday from 10am-5pm and Sunday from 1-5pm.

This FREE self-guided tour is open to the public – look for the red balloons at each location! Artist Site Lists will be available at all participating artists’ locations and on the tour website at (www.artstocktour.com) after Sept. 15, 2015.

Art lovers, patrons and new collectors are invited to visit Individual artists participating at 9 studio sites; come and be inspired by their diverse talents!  The participating artists will be displaying their works in their own studios, as well as at group and gallery locations.  A variety of media is represented: painting, sculpture, collage and mixed media.

Our Mission:  Artstock collectively represents individual visual artists in the greater Greensboro area by annually presenting our Studio Tour the second weekend of October. By promoting the distinctive talent of each artist, we in turn focus on and celebrate the creativity within our broader local community.

This year’s slogan is “Fine Art Entrepreneurs.”  By definition, artists are entrepreneurs, yet the public often forgets that these creative personalities, just like other individual professionals such as doctors, accountants and lawyers, they have to run a business while having to practice their craft.  What some think of as a hobby, these professional artists make their livelihoods through their creative talent.

Artstock seeks to expose these individual artists to the surrounding community for the entrepreneurs they are and highlight the creative talent that brings our lives validation, historical documentation and meaning.

More information may be obtained by visiting (www.artstocktour.com). For additional tour questions, please contact Carolyn Owen, Artstock Coordinator at 336/643-6428.

The CVA invests in using art as a tool of engagement to bring together diverse voices in the Greater Greensboro community. Therefore, participation in “Art + Dialogue: Responding to Racial Tension in America” is an extension of the work that CVA is already doing. CVA is grateful for the opportunity to partner in coalition with other visual arts organizations to bring “A + D” to Greensboro and beyond in an effort to reframe how we think about, write about, discuss, or otherwise consider race and racism in America with the goal of creating sustainable, equitable systemic change.”

Greenhill and The Green Bean in Greensboro, NC, Partner for Summer Exhibitions

April 30, 2015

Greenhill-centers-new-logo

In conjunction with Greenhill’s summer exhibition, “Jonathan Brilliant On-Site” (June 19 – August 30, 2015), The Green Bean is hosting a call for artists for “Grounding Grounds” on display June 13 – August 1.

“Jonathan Brilliant On-Site”, curated by Edie Carpenter, explores the work of Jonathan Brilliant who will create a site-specific installation from repurposed materials sourced primarily from coffee shop culture such as disposable wooden stir sticks, iced coffee straws, paper cup sleeves and plastic cup lids. In the spirit of Brilliants exhibition, Tricia Cooke, curator at The Green Bean is announcing a call to artists for “Grounding Grounds | A Community Art Project and Exhibition” comprised of works submitted by artists of any skill level using similar coffee house materials; coffee cups, lids, straws, stir sticks, filters, used coffee grounds, etc. Cooke said, “It’s exciting to be able to work together – to have the support from Greenhill as we support their ideas and vision.”

In Jonathan Brilliant’s work he explores the ideas his work “that the coffee shop and related consumer environs are more organic and nurturing than the ‘real’ natural environment.”  At Greenhill, he will develop a site-responsive work focused on the unique features and architecture of The Gallery. The installation, containing between 30,000-50,000 stir sticks woven entirely with tension and compression without adhesive, creates an uncanny sculptural environment for the viewer where they are literally immersed in an environment formed from nothing but the repurposed materials.  His work reflects his interests in the effects of labor, performance and materials applied to an exhibition space.

More about the Call to Artists

The Green Bean is looking for artists who are interested in creating works made out of materials and supplies found in coffee shops; cups, lids, straws, stirrers, filters, used coffee grounds, etc. Finished pieces need not be solely comprised of these items, but these items must be somehow incorporated into pieces.
