The Main Gallery features two artists with photographs by Barbara Tyroler and sculpture by James Barnhill. Barnhill, a native of Asheville, received his Bachelor's degree in Art Education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1977. After his undergraduate work, he spent a year of study in Marburg, Germany and traveled extensively. In 1982 Barnhill received his Master of Fine Arts degree in Sculpture from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, studying the figure under the late Peter Agostini.

He works from the live model, sculpting both fully in the round as well as in relief. Barnhill has successfully executed work for corporate, public, liturgical, and garden settings. More than a mere copy of the human body, his work seeks to marry the abstract principles of design and composition to the natural form of the figure. Barnhill's works appear to be animated from within and engage viewers on many levels.

He currently teaches as an Associate Professor of Art at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Gallery B hosts LOOKING UP: Works by Les Caison III. Les is an award-winning artist from Greensboro, NC and a graduate from Appalachian State University with a BFA in Studio Art. He paints with oil and illustrates with pencil, often intertwining the two, creating scenes of everyday life.  His mixed media paintings tell stories and offer something for the viewer to think about for a while.

His latest body of mixed media paintings titled “Looking Up” debuted at The Turchin Center for Visual Arts in Boone, NC during the winter of 2015 and will be on view at TAG from January 22nd through March 11th. His work is mentioned in numerous publications including the March 2010 issue of North Carolina’s Our State Magazine. Honors include a 2008 Elsewhere Artist-In-Residence in Greensboro and a 2003 Asheville Artist Grant. His commission projects and patrons span many states as well as overseas.

In his free time Les can be found working on an array of commissions from t-shirt and tattoo designs to portraits from life and large format paintings. He is an associate member of Winston-Salem’s Delurk Gallery Collective and enjoys his time working annually with fourth grade art students through Guilford County’s Artists In-Schools program. He also paints and directs programs with the Randolph Arts Guild from his studio in Asheboro.

 

The Hallway Gallery features images that represent the Orphan Trains in America. Between 1854 and 1929, orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by luck or chance. This exhibit is in collaboration with the High Point Public Library.
