(GREENSBORO, NC) GreenHill Center for North Carolina Art presents its 42nd annual WINTER SHOW featuring wide-ranging contemporary works in all mediums, including paintings, sculpture, photography, ceramics, jewelry, wood- and fiber works. Exemplifying high levels of creative expression throughout the state, the two-month exhibition strengthens GreenHill’s focus on cultural diversity. A comprehensive digital catalog and small group gallery visits grow flexible engagement opportunities with works on view and celebrated artists.

WINTER SHOW inspires connection and openness to new perspectives,” explained Barbara Richter, Executive Director and CEO of GreenHill. “The exhibition offers coveted access to many of our state’s most innovative and thoughtful creators both online and in-person. More than 400 works by emerging and established artists showcase the resilience of our multi-faceted, cultural community.”

Curator Edie Carpenter continued: “Among new artists presented in this year’s WINTER SHOW, are Jasmine Best, a UNC-Greensboro grad whose multi-media works address black female identity and memories of her childhood in the South. Asheboro’s John Shoemaker offers stunning hand-blown glass pieces derived from antique and scientific glass forms. Created in Raleigh, Selina Akter’s gushing abstract paintings explore hopes and dreams through the eyes of contrasting cultures: her native land of Bangladesh and the West.”

All objects by more than 50 artists in GreenHill’s WINTER SHOW are available for purchase. Proceeds provide vital economic support to participating artists, GreenHill exhibitions, arts education, and community outreach. WINTER SHOW is free and open to the public.

WINTER SHOW 2021 is sponsored by Knight Carr & Company, LT Apparel Group, Linda & Stu Spitsen, Well-Spring, and Jill & Thomas White, with generous support from Frank L. Blum Construction, Debbie Champagne, Compass Financial Group, DGI Incorporated, Farless Dental Group, Piedmont Natural Gas, Piedmont Direct Mail, Pinnacle Financial Partners, Printery, Lincoln Financial Group, Rice Toyota, Bernard Robinson & Company and Womble Bond Dickinson.
