FRANK Gallery in October
artGuide Magazine is pleased to cover two amazing art exhibits at Chapel Hill art gallery FRANK Gallery. Pots in the Piedmont and FRANK:inFocus. Enjoy!
October 11 – November 6, 2016
Pots in the Piedmont
The piedmont region of North Carolina has become a destination for pottery lovers and collectors. The area is rich with a vast and diverse population of potters who embrace and expand upon the history and tradition of ceramics in the south. Our featured exhibition in October, Pots in the Piedmont, showcases a group of more than a dozen ceramicists and potters, from Raleigh to Seagrove, who share an emphasis on functional form in both sculptural and practical pieces. Among the artists presented at FRANK this fall, some continue to create using traditional forms that are strongly rooted in the undeniable style of NC pottery, and others find inspiration towards a more contemporary aesthetic.
FRANK Gallery also celebrates community through photography this October presenting the 5th year of the FRANK:inFocus festival and exhibition. Five established FRANK photographers, Alan Dehmer, Peter Filene, William McAllister, John Rosenthal, and Barbara Tyroler will be joined this year by three exceptional guests to be featured during the Click! Photography Festival. We are pleased to announce photographers Carolyn DeMeritt, Aspen Hochhalter, and Diana H Bloomfield will be joining us for our 2016 FRANK:inFocus exhibition. Each of these three exceptional women use alternative process to explore the medium of photography in new and exciting ways. This photographic celebration will continue in our Michael and Laura Brader-Araje Community Outreach Gallery with From Concept to Gallery a three part community photography exhibition.
