Our Fifth Annu­al Res­o­lu­tions Juried Show is kick­ing off the 2019 new year.

RESOLUTIONS 2019 will run from Jan­u­ary 7th to Jan­u­ary 31st and will show­case the work of artists from across North Car­oli­na. Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of the juried shows of the pre­vi­ous four years, HGA held its open call to artists for RESOLUTIONS 2019 this fall. Artists from through­out the state entered works in a wide vari­ety of media. This year’s exhib­it fea­tures work in met­al, wood, ceram­ics, tex­tiles, and pho­tog­ra­phy. Also rep­re­sent­ed are paint­ings in oil, acrylic, water­col­or, pas­tel, and encaus­tic. As in pre­vi­ous years, the exhib­it has drawn par­tic­i­pa­tion from artists liv­ing as far east as Wilm­ing­ton and as far west as Asheville.  RESOLUTIONS is one of a very few art exhibits ded­i­cat­ed specif­i­cal­ly to North Car­oli­na artists. The artist-own­ers of the Hills­bor­ough Gallery of Arts have enjoyed the new chal­lenges of orga­niz­ing and curat­ing the RESOLUTIONS exhibits. Each year’s exhib­it presents the group with unique sit­u­a­tions, test­ing the artist-group’s cre­ativ­i­ty in new ways.

Guest juror for awards for RESOLUTIONS 2019 is John Cof­fey, Deputy Direc­tor for Art and Research and the Bech­er Cura­tor of Amer­i­can and Mod­ern Art of the North Car­oli­na Muse­um of Art in Raleigh.  A native of Raleigh, Cof­fey holds under­grad­u­ate degrees in His­to­ry and Art His­to­ry from the Uni­ver­si­ty of North Car­oli­na, Chapel Hill and a mas­ters degree in Art His­to­ry from Williams Col­lege. In his years at the NCMA, Cof­fey has been instru­men­tal in mak­ing the muse­um a nation­al­ly renowned insti­tu­tion. An Artists Recep­tion and Juror’s Talk will be held on Fri­day, Jan­u­ary 25th, from 6–9 pm and is open to the pub­lic.  All works in the show are for sale.
