Durham Arts Council in Durham, NC, Features Printmakers Exhibit

The Durham Arts Council in Durham, NC, will present the exhibit, Screened: New Work by the Printmakers of North Carolina, a collection of screen prints organized by Judy Jones, on view in the Allenton and Semans Galleries, from Jan. 20 through Apr. 15, 2012. A reception will be held on Jan. 20, from 5-7pm.

Artists participating in the exhibit include: Aaron Wallace, Brandon Sanderson, Cary Brief, Cherish Gregory, Delia Ware Keefe, Denee Black, Shane Hall, Maury Beckman, Vidabeth Bensen, Matthew Egan, Heather Muise, Jovian Turnbull, Judy Jones, Kristen Lineberger, Kristianne Ripple, Martha Sisk, Soni Martin, and Jason Leighton.

The Printmakers of North Carolina (PoNC) include professors, art-teachers, studio artists, and students who practice a variety of printmaking methods. Screened focuses on screen-printing techniques. All members of the PoNC live and work in North Carolina, and their work reflects the experience of the state in their daily lives.

The exhibit was organized by Judy Jones, the founder and chairperson of the PoNC, and is part of the Durham Arts Council’s year round exhibit program.

The Durham Arts Council is currently showing the exhibits, Our House: DAC School Annual Faculty and Student Exhibition, and Heather Gordon’s Hear & Now, on view through Jan. 12, 2012.

Founded in 1954, Allied Arts occupied several facilities before moving into the former City Hall on Morris Street in 1978, three years after changing its name to Durham Arts Council, Inc. In the mid 1980s, after a three year renovation, the city-owned building became DAC’s long term home and, together with the adjacent Carolina Theatre, part of the Royall Center for the Arts in Downtown Durham.
