Theatre Art Galleries (TAG) announces the opening of a new winter exhibition. An Opening Reception will be held the evening of Thursday, January 31st from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The exhibition and opening reception are open to the public.
REFLECTIONS OF ELEGANCE: KENNETH PAUL BLOCK AND THE MASTERS OF FASHION ILLUSTRATION will be featured in a stunning exhibition of original works by the most influential American fashion illustrator of the late 20th century. The exhibit was curated by the Kenneth Paul Block Foundation, holder of the most extensive archive of Block’s artwork.
In the words of designer Isaac Mizrahi “more than any single designer, Kenneth Block gave New York fashion its sophistication.” In a time when photography captured the art of fashion, Kenneth Paul Block opted instead to use pencils and paint to interpret its soul. The exhibit presents Block as a renowned creator and influencer to fashion illustrators, both old and new. Borrowing from Block’s extensive personal collection of drawings by other important fashion illustrators, the viewer will see Block’s illustrations mirrored in works by historic masters and reflected in the new generation.
The Kaleidoscope Youth Gallery is hosting the Annual TAG High School Art Exhibit with art work from the students of many of our Guilford County high schools.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 12:00-5:00 p.m.
