Greenhill in Greensboro, NC, Offers Annual Fundraising Exhibit

Greenhill in Greensboro, NC, will present its Winter Show for the 34th year, presenting works by 130 artists from around the state, with a mix of mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, ceramic, jewelry, woodwork, fabric and fiber works, all within a harmonious installation. Artists showing work in the exhibition vary not only by mediums, but also by experience, background and perspective.

With lead sponsors Our State, Shamrock Corporation and Wells Fargo, this signature event takes place in downtown Greensboro for 31 days, from Dec, 8 through Jan. 12, 2014, during which the public is invited to view a carefully curated selection of works from emerging and returning North Carolina artists in The Gallery at Greenhill. With over 500 works all available for sale, Winter Show is the quintessential showing of art produced by North Carolina artists today.

Laura Way, Greenhill’s Executive Director says, “Winter Show is an amazing experience. During this annual show you walk into The Gallery at Greenhill and are invigorated by the beauty, breadth and depth of work being produced by the artists of our great state. Greenhill is about community, and Winter Show is like inviting 130 of our favorite artist friends to celebrate the season with us. Have a creative journey in our space and then take something special back home with you. The work will feel fresh and vibrant, right for your home or your office, or perhaps it will find a place with a special friend.”

This years’ Winter Show has co-curators, Greenhill’s own Edie Carpenter and Dana Moore, the former Program Director at Penland School of Crafts. Carpenter and Moore have reached out around the state and beyond to find artists who live, studied in, or have significant creative ties to North Carolina to invite them to be a part of this unrivaled survey of artwork. This year features new artists such as sculptor Eric Serritella from Carborro, mixed media artist Jessica Dupuis from Chapel Hill, and abstract artist Barbara Campbell Thomas from Greensboro. Winter Show also features returning stars like artist Ben Billingsley from Wilmington, ceramic artist Susan Faegin from Penland and glass artist Kenny Peiper from Burnsville.

On Dec. 7, Greenhill opens the Winter Show exhibition, with the Collectors’ Choice party and fundraiser. One of Greensboro’s most popular holiday season events, Collector’s Choice, provides a rare opportunity to become engaged with the very best fine art and craft North Carolina has to offer. Attendees have an advance opportunity to purchase pieces in the Winter Show exhibition before they are available to the public. Proceeds from Collector’s Choice benefit the exhibition and educational programming of Greenhill. Tickets are $60 for members, $75 for non-members or $80 at the door. Purchase tickets online at (www.greenhillnc.org) or by calling 336/333-7460.

Greenhill is located in the Greensboro Cultural Center. Greenhill promotes the visual arts of North Carolina by engaging a broad community of artists, adults and children through dynamic exhibitions and educational programs while providing a platform for exploration and investment in art.
