Green Hill Center for NC Art in Greensboro, NC, Offers Annual Winter Show Fundraiser Exhibit
Justin D Turcotte
Connecting North Carolina's most talented and
creative artists with the state's most enthusiastic art lovers,
the Green Hill Center for NC Art in Greensboro, NC, presents its
31st Annual Winter Show on view from Dec. 5, 2010 through
Jan. 15, 2011. Featuring 500-plus works for purchase from more
than 125 artists from Penland to Pamlico, it is easily the largest
and finest exhibition and sale of North Carolina art and crafts
in the state. Paintings, sculpture, photography, jewelry, woodwork,
fabric and fiber works, ceramics, are presented in an articulated
installation in which hundreds of artworks in multiple mediums
may be viewed in a harmonious ensemble.
As in prior years, curator Edie Carpenter has selected artists whose work will appeal to first time art buyers. "We want everyone to become a collector, no matter what their budget or what the economy is doing," Carpenter says. "I've bought a lot of things that I later regretted buying, but not one of them has been a work of art. If you have less money, as many of us do right now, why not invest it in something unique and handmade, something that's one of a kind, and something that will increase in value."
Carpenter will give a special talk on Dec. 9, 2010, at 5:30pm in the Green Hill Center Gallery directed to the new collector. Green Hill Center art buyers and collectors, whether veteran or newbies, will take home some art created by rising stars. "Artists who have exhibited in past shows include Maud Gatewood, Bert Carpenter, Richard Fennell, Andrew Martin and Beverly McIver, iconic names in the art world. I dare say that some of their work sold here for less than a couple hundred dollars," she says. "But that's not the real point. The joy and excitement that it has generated over the years is, as the tired old adage goes, simply priceless."
