Opening September 3, 2015
Original works by local artist Jeff Hankins
“JEFF HANKINS: A Retrospective” will be featured in the Main Gallery. Jeff Hankins’ paintings are a collection of all of his favorite places. He spent most of his time studying and painting scenes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the North Carolina coast, the Great Lakes of Michigan, the Rocky Mountains, and the countryside of Guilford County, where he lived.
In 2010, The Artist’s Magazine selected Hankins as a winner in their ‘Over 60’ contest, selecting his painting from over 2,000 entries to be published in their March issue. Other awards include first place in the following exhibits: Foot of Hills Art Show and the Virginia Archeological Society Art Contest, both in Martinsville, VA; Sawtooth Gallery Summer Select Show, Winston Salem, NC; Dimensions National Art Competition and the Henley Paper Corporation National Juried Art Show (three awards).
Jeff was also the generous donor of TAG’s 2012 Annual Gala & Art Auction Raffle Painting.
Gallery B will host the “GOLDEN BELT STUDIO ARTISTS GROUP SHOW: Work by 10 artists from Durham, NC”. The Golden Belt Manufacturing Company was founded in 1900 as a textile factory that processed cotton into thread and produced pouches for Bull Durham tobacco. With a focus on the arts and creativity, Golden Belt was revitalized through a historic restoration that embraces a funky industrial aesthetic to forge a unique urban environment where creative people live, work and play. Thirty-five open-air work-only artist studios wrap around a central gallery space at Golden Belt’s campus. Participating artists in Gallery B at TAG are Chieko Murasugi, Judy Keene, Madelyn Smoak, Marie Wright, Christine Long, Sarah Wilkins, Amanda Cousins, Roxanne Lorch, Patricia Pittman, and Erin Oliver.
The Hallway Gallery will host “ARTISTS THAT TEACH: Work by Area Art Teachers”. Participating artists and teachers include Laurie Wiesner-Phillips from Trinity High School, Ann Popek from Ragsdale High School, Victoria Bailess from Westchester Country Day School, Tara Kecki from Union Hill Elementary School, Lisa Woods and Steven Cozart from Weaver Academy, Jessie Raeford from Southern Guilford High School, Lyza Royal from Thomasville High School, Page Gleeson from Northwood Elementary School, Blair Collins from Archdale-Trinity Middle School (Retired), Amy Davis from High Point Christian Academy, Carol Langohr from Triangle Lake Elementary School, and Richard O’Hara from Penn Griffin School of the Arts.
The Kaleidoscope Youth Gallery will host the ANNUAL SUMMER CAMPS ART SHOW with works by students enrolled in TAG’s Summer Art Camp Program.
