Greenhill-centers-new-logo

GreenHill in Greensboro, NC, announces its second installment of the NC Artist Outreach Project, a program made possible by the Tannenbaum-Sternberger Foundation. The NC Art Outreach Project (Oct. 6-7, 2016) is designed to provide exposure to North Carolina artists by facilitating a dialogue with a nationally recognized artist, critic and curator. This year’s project is hosted in conjunction with GreenHill’s fall exhibition “Insistent Objects: Works by Young NC Sculptors” (Sept. 2 – Nov. 6, 2016).

Following on the success of the 2014 NC Art Outreach Project held during GreenHill’s exhibition Independents, this year’s project will offer the artists of Insistent Objects artists an invaluable opportunity to network with experts in the field of sculpture and receive direct feedback about their creative practices. Beginning on Oct. 6, 2016, at 6pm in The Gallery at GreenHill with a Panel Roundtable, guest panelists will present their experience working in contemporary art giving attention to the sculpture mediums. Guest Panelists include Glenn Harper, Tom Moran and Michael Ballou. Admission is Free.

On Oct. 7, 2016, artists will present slides to the panel for feedback and critique. Curated by Edie Carpenter, Insistent Objects is the first sculpture survey organized by GreenHill in a decade, highlighting works in the round by 18 hand-picked young contemporary artists who work, teach, studied or participated in an artist residency in North Carolina.  Participating artists include Ivana Milojevic Beck, Casey Cook, Andy Denton, Aaron Earley, Mario Gallucci, Rachel K. Garceau, Peter Goff, Joe Grant, Paul Howe, Kamal Nassif, Benjamin S. Reid, John Seefeldt, Austin Sheppard, Meg Stein, Frankie Toan, Kevin M. Vanek, Lu Xu and Ashley York.

Glenn Harper is Editor of “Sculpture” magazine and was formerly editor of “Art Papers”. He has written for “Aperture”, “Artforum”, “Public Art Review”, “Afterimage”, “Exit Express”, and for books on the works of artists John Van Alstine, Athena Tacha, and others. Tom Moran is Chief Curator and Director of Artistic Development of Grounds for Sculpture (GFS), a 42-acre landscaped sculpture park on the former site of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds which has been instrumental in introducing sculpture to a wider public. During his 30 year tenure as Director of Arts Inclusion and Artistic Services at the New Jersey State Arts Council he placed thousands of works of art in the state and federal buildings. Michael Ballou is a New York-based visual artist who works in media including film, installation, performance and sculpture.  A longstanding member of the Williamsburg artist community in Brooklyn, he was one of the guiding spirits behind Four Walls, a combination of clubhouse and laboratory for the exchange of art and ideas hosted in his garage studio. He has exhibited at Valentine Gallery, David Zwirner Gallery, Pierogi Gallery, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Xavier Hufkens Gallery, and the Kunsthalle (Vienna), among others.

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. The event will feature a selection of her artwork including many new paintings from recent months. 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.

It is great being a part of an invigorating environment where people are excited about making things.” She also worked with children and families throughout the week sharing information and techniques for working with clay.
