Green Hill Center for NC Art in Greensboro, NC, Offers Exhibit Focused by the Built Environment

Green Hill Center for NC Art in Greensboro, NC, will present the exhibit, ReLocations, featuring works focused on the built environment, on view from Sept. 1 through Nov. 5, 2011. A reception will be held on Sept. 9, from 5:30-7:30pm

The exhibition includes works by: Michael Ehlbeck, Keiko Genka, Rachel Herrick, Gordon C. James, Corwin Levi, Mario Marzan, Juan Obando, Sarah Powers, Jean-Christian Rostagni, Lee Walton, Rosemary Winn and Jimmy Craig Womble II.

Green Hill Center’s fall exhibition examines our experience of city spaces and the ways in which built environments affect the culture and inform our community identity. The theme of the city as a setting for historical change is addressed in Jean-Christian Rostagni’s photographs of the World Trade Center or Rachel Herrick’s night scenes of aging landmarks in Fuquay-Varina, NC.

Several artists create works that do not reference a specific place, as in Mario Marzan’s joyfully labyrinthine wall construction Sink, (2011) or Rosemary Winn’s glowing utopias presented in illuminated light boxes suggesting aerial photographs. Through painting, printmaking, mixed media installations, photography and video these artists imagine the city in very different ways. Whether as a site of migration and exodus, a platform for social construction, a neon marketplace or intangible network, the twelve artists in this exhibition share a common concern for conceptualizing the modern city and defining a new urban vision.
