We have lots of “faves” to share this Friday!
We really enjoyed the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art’s British Invasion opening last week. The show is up through February 18, 2015, so you have plenty of time to check out works from David Hockney, Henry Moore, Lynn Chadwick, Barbara Hepworth, and more. Want to spend more time at the Becthler? Have a curatorial background, with interest and expertise in modern art? You’re in luck: the Becthler just posted a job for a Modern Art Curator.
Last year Artfields 2014 in Lake City, SC awarded $100,000 in prizes to artists from across the Southeast. The submission process for the 2015 Artfields competition is now open! Artists, what are you waiting for? You have until November 14 to apply for this exhibition, on view April 24 – May 2, 2015.
We could’t be more excited that the Light Factory is up and running again! They have been offering classes for a few months, but the first exhibition in their new space, Richard Renaldi: Touching Strangers, opens October 3. Stay tuned for more details!
Last but not least, we are very proud that several North Carolina artists have been included in State of the Art at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. In 2013, the museum’s curatorial team set out to investigate American art today. They traveled more than 100,000 miles and visited nearly 1000 artists. Nearly100 artists are included in the exhibition which is on view through January 19, 2015. Congratulations to all of the artists, but in particular to North Carolina artists Bob Trotman (image below), Peter Glenn Oakley, and Jeff Whetstone! If you can’t make it out to Crystal Bridges, check out the exhibition site to learn more about the show and exhibiting artists.
