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