The Hallway Gallery will feature PRINCESS CURETON: Artistic Metaphor. This exhibit is based on metaphors that reflect the very personal and spiritual landscape of Princess’ experiences and narrated through the figure in surreal background. Using a variety of processes to coax the figure away from the surface of the canvas such as embedding hair, jute, beads, modeling mediums, hand-made papers, fabric, glass, sand and material indigenous to the spiritual and spatial environment, she attempts the illusion of reality and 3- dimensionality. Her work is an autobiographical reflection of the consonance and dissonance in her life, which she shares openly and honestly with the viewer.
The Kaleidoscope Gallery will host the ANNUAL ARTISTS WHO TEACH EXHIBIT featuring work from Guilford County Art Teachers. Join us in honoring the profession of Teaching and the Artist as Teacher. Guilford county artists who teach at any level were invited to submit their art work for the exhibit.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 12:00-5:00 p.m.
