The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts welcomes in the New Year with its third annual statewide juried show, RESOLUTIONS 2017.  RESOLUTIONS 2017, will run from January 4th to January 22nd, 2017, and will showcase the work of artists from across North Carolina.  Following on the success of the juried shows of the previous two years, HGA held its open call to artists for RESOLUTIONS 2017 this fall.  2D and 3D artists from throughout the state entered works in a wide variety of media. This year’s show includes painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics, collage, encaustics, glass, and more.

In previous years, the exhibit has drawn participation from artists living as far east as Wilmington and west toward Asheville.   The annual RESOLUTIONS exhibits are one of a very few art exhibits dedicated specifically to North Carolina artists.  The artist-owners of the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts, have enjoyed the new challenges which have come as the group has undertaken the role of organizing and curating the RESOLUTIONS exhibits. 

Guest juror for awards for RESOLUTIONS 2017 will be Dr. Larry Wheeler, Director of the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, N.C. since 1994.  Under Dr. Wheeler’s leadership, the NC Museum of Art has become one of the leading art museums in the American South.  Prior to joining the NCMA, Dr. Wheeler was director of development at the Cleveland Museum of Art, from 1985 to 1994.  Dr. Wheeler has been recognized internationally for his knowledge of and contribution to the arts. 

An Opening Reception and Juror’s Talk will be held on Friday, January 13th, from 6-9 pm.  The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts is located at 121 North Churton Street in Hillsborough, NC.  All works in the show are for sale.
