The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts, an artist-owned and operated gallery in downtown Hillsborough, NC, presents a featured show by all 22 member artists in collaboration with internationally known author, Michael Malone. Each piece in the group show, “It’s All About the Story,” is inspired by Michael Malone’s collection of short stories in “Red Clay, Blue Cadillac.” The show runs from February 19 to March 24, 2013, with an opening reception on Friday, February 22 from 6-9 pm. Michael Malone will present a special reading from his book on March 24, 2-4 pm at HGA.
In the twelve short stories of “Red Clay, Blue Cadillac,” Michael Malone brings to life a series of unforgettable women who are as colorful as the southern landscapes they inhabit. The member artists of the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts depict their stories of survival, emancipation, betrayal, love, and longing through visual imagery in paintings, photography, metal, fiber, glass, and wood. It is a show for all those who appreciate Southern-themed arts of the written word and the visual world.
