The Durham Art Guild presents the 64th Annual Juried Exhibition. This is the Guild's longest-running, largest, and most impressive annual exhibition featuring the work of over 40 regional artists working in a variety of mediums and styles.
The exhibition is on view in the SunTrust Gallery from August 17 - October 13, 2018.
This year's artwork was selected by Leslie Mounaime, Gallery Director of the Target Gallery at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA.
Opening public reception during 3rd Friday Durham on August 17 from 6-9pm. Secondary reception on September 21 from 6-8pm.
In partnership with The Carrack and Durham's Art Museum and Boutique Hotel 21C Penelope's Room is a large-scale interactive fiber art installation transforming a room of 21c’s historic bank vault into a woven chamber. Visitors are encouraged to walk through, touch, and embrace the piece.
The title refers to Penelope, wife of Odysseus, who nightly picked apart the burial shroud she wove in her husband’s absence to prevent having to remarry after his assumed death.
The piece will debut at The Carrack's Annual Muse Masquerade, Friday, October 27th and will be open to the public 24/7 until December 2nd.
This installation was made possible through generous support from The Carrack, a zero-commission community art space, and Indio, a store for beautiful goods and gifts. With material donation from Spoonflower and crowdfunding support from more than 30 individuals.
