The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts welcomes in the New Year with its fourth annual statewide juried show, RESOLUTIONS 2018.
RESOLUTIONS 2018, will run from January 3th to January 21nd, 2018, and will showcase the work of artists from across North Carolina. Following on the success of the juried shows of the previous three years, HGA held its open call to artists for RESOLUTIONS 2018 this fall. 2D and 3D artists from throughout the state entered works in a wide variety of media. This year’s show includes painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics, collage, encaustics, glass and more.
As in previous years, the exhibit has drawn participation from artists across the state from the mountains to the coast, from Murphy, east to Wrightsville Beach. The annual RESOLUTIONS exhibits are one of a very few art exhibits dedicated specifically to North Carolina artists. The artist-owners of the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts, enjoy the ever-new challenges which come as the group continues its role of organizing and curating the RESOLUTIONS exhibits.
Guest juror for awards for RESOLUTIONS 2018 will be Dr. Sarah Schroth, Director of the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University. Dr. Schroth joined the Nasher in 1994. She served as Senior Curator at the Nasher for a number of years, before becoming its director in 2013.
While at Duke, Schroth has organized numerous shows ranging from old masters to contemporary art, including the award-winning 2008 exhibition, “El Greco to Velázquez: Art during the Reign of Philip III.” As a result of that exhibition, which she organized with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Schroth was named knight-commander in the Order of Isabel la Católica by King Juan Carlos I of Spain. She has collaborated on major exhibitions with the Museo del Prado, the Seattle Art Museum and others, and has published widely. Prior to joining the Nasher, Schroth worked at the Kimbell Museum in Fort Worth, Texas; the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.; and the Ackland Art Museum at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She majored in art history at Mary Washington College and, after working at the Atlanta College of Art and living in Spain, earned her Ph.D. from the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University. She went on to receive the David E. Finley Fellowship at the National Gallery of Art’s Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts.
An Opening Reception and Juror’s Talk will be held on Friday, January 12th, from 6-9 pm. The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts is located at 121 North Churton Street in Hillsborough, NC. All works in the show are for sale.
