OPENING RECEPTION Friday, January 12th, 6 – 9 pm
The show will run from January 3rd to January 21st, 2018, and will showcase the work of artists from across North Carolina. Following on the success of the juried shows of the previous three years, HGA held its open call to artists for Resolutions 2018 this fall. 2D and 3D artists from throughout the state submitted works in a wide variety of media. This year’s show includes painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics, collage, encaustics, glass, and more.
As in previous years, the exhibit has drawn participation from artists across the state, from the mountains to the coast. The annual Resolutions exhibits are one of a very few art exhibits dedicated specifically to North Carolina artists. The artist-owners of the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts enjoy the ever-new challenges which come as the group continues its role of organizing and curating the gallery’s annual Resolutions exhibits.
The guest juror of Resolutions 2018 will be Dr. Sarah Schroth, Director of the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University. Dr. Schroth joined the Nasher in 1994. She served as Senior Curator at the Nasher for a number of years before becoming its director in 2013. While at Duke, Schroth has organized numerous shows ranging from old masters to contemporary art and has published widely. Prior to joining the Nasher, Schroth worked at the Kimbell Museum in Fort Worth, Texas; the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.; and the Ackland Art Museum at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
An Opening Reception and Juror’s Talk will be held on Friday, January 12th from 6-9pm. The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts is located at 121 North Churton Street in Hillsborough, NC. All the works in the show are for sale.
