Green Hill Center for NC Art in Greensboro, NC, Features Works by NC Arts Council Fellowship Artists

The Green Hill Center for NC Art in Greensboro, NC, will present the North Carolina Arts Council Artist Fellowship Exhibition, featuring works by eighteen visual artists selected for the 2008-2009 North Carolina Arts Council Fellowship Awards, on view from June 4 through Aug. 22, 2010.

For the fourth time in 30 years, Green Hill Center has been the host institution for this important show; this is not only an honor but also a responsibility to present the work in a manner that highlights the individual artist as well as articulates a cohesive collective view of all eighteen Fellowship recipients. Related programming including films, artist talks, round table discussions and a catalog will accompany the exhibition.

Since its inception in 1980, the North Carolina Fellowship artists have represented the best contemporary artists in the state. The "best" has been defined through a rigorous panel process which, in 2009, included some of the State's most innovate and talented artists, curators, and art historians. The Fellowship Award provides the recipient the gift of time, materials, and equipment to experiment, and to pursue and create new and innovative work. 

"The innovative work of these artists reflects the spirit of creativity that has existed in North Carolina for so many years," said Mary B. Regan, executive director of the North Carolina Arts Council. "We are delighted to provide support for such deserving professionals."
