Help us continue to inspire, challenge, motivate and celebrate students and professional artists in Durham by sponsoring the 2016 Creative Mentorship Program!
The Creative Mentorship Program empowers students to discover and develop their creative voices and artistic skills through 20 weeks of dedicated work with a professional artist at Golden Belt Artist Studios, involvement with the local arts community through monthly field trips and workshops, and a month-long exhibition in Golden Belt’s Room 100 Gallery.
Many thanks to all of the artists who shared their artworks and passions with the Durham Art Guild and with our Juror, Alice Gray Stites, Museum Director and Chief Curator of 21c Museum Hotels.
We had 208 artists submit work to this exhibition which is nearly a 10% increase from last year's submissions. There was a phenomenal pool of work this year again for our juror to choose from. After a week of deliberation, Alice Gray Stites has made her final selections.
Thanks so much to all of the applicants for sharing their work with DAG and Castalia and Meadowmont. The Castlalia Management and Tenant Selection Team has reviewed the 16 applications and have made their selections for the 2015-2016 cycles. Congratulations to the following artists:
Illustrious: Spotlight on Regional Illustration, the Durham Art Guild’s latest juried theme exhibition, will highlight the varied work of the area's most talented and innovative artists exploring illustration. As a particularly diverse art form, illustration relies heavily on context. Artists use line, color, technique and any number of mediums to show or explain tangible and intangible concepts and subjects alike.
Congratulations to our 2015 Artist in Residence Maready Evergreen. We are so excited to welcome her to studio 119 at Golden Belt for 6 months beginning in July.
Her residency will culminate in a solo exhibition at Room 100 Gallery in December. Her studio will be open to the public during Third Friday Durham July-December so please come and check-in on her progress!
