GreenHill Announces Art Placement Partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro
(Greensboro, NC) – GreenHill, the center for North Carolina art located in Greensboro, announces a partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro (CFGG) to curate a rotation of exhibitions in Foundation’s boardroom. With an active roster of over 1,500 artists, GreenHill selects works that are appropriate to CFGG’s aesthetic brand while promoting North Carolina art, artists and GreenHill. Curated by Edie Carpenter, director of curatorial and artist programs and Elizabeth Harry, shop manager/registrar, each rotation will bring a fresh perspective to the CFGG space. According to Walker Sanders, president of CFGG, “Supporting artists and the creation of original art is an important part of what we do at The Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro. Through our grant program, the Public Art Endowment, Steven Tanger Center for Performing Arts and other initiatives, we are actively engaged in the cultural community of Greensboro. GreenHill has been an important arts organization for over 40 years and we are pleased to support them while having the opportunity to showcase some wonderful NC artists.” The three artists selected for the next 12 months are also on exhibit at GreenHill’s annual Winter Show, running December 3, 2017 – January 23, 2017.
Charlotte Foust | November – February – Charlotte Foust graduated from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art, and early in her career was awarded an Emerging Artist Grant from the Arts and Science Council. Her work is widely collected in the United States and her paintings have been included in exhibits at the Mint Museum of Art, the Levine Museum of the New South, and the McColl Center for Art.
Christopher Stephens | March – June – Christopher Stephens is an artist currently living and working in Front Royal, a town in northwestern Virginia. In Front Royal, the North and South forks of the Shenandoah River come together and one finds the northern terminus of the Skyline Drive. His aim is to know and to capture the color of light and he returns to the same sites over and over, to better see and paint changing light, atmosphere, and seasons. He received his education at UNC Greensboro and James Madison University in Virginia.
Autumn Cobeland | July – October – I have fallen head over heels for the greenway! This quiet, serene path that winds delicately and subtly through our neighborhoods and along Crabtree Creek is magical to me. I love the twists and turns, each one unique. I like hearing the gurgling water even if the smell is not always enchanting.
