“New Exhibit with Jeri Greenberg, David Norris & Photographer, Curtis Krueger” features three artists working with a wide range in media from pastel, monoprints and photography.

Currently the opening reception, is scheduled for Friday, July 24, from 6-9pm Stay tuned for more details.*

Jeri Greenberg’s “Green Blankets, 11am” and David Norris’ “Three Pines”

After many years as a fashion illustrator and sportswear designer, Jeri Greenberg turned her love of graphic design towards advertising for a while. Having time to devote herself to painting again – and falling in love with the pastel medium – has led to a new and interesting “next act” as full time painter and teacher. Recently relocated, Jeri teaches weekly classes at the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington NC, and does demos and workshops around the country, as well as jurying pastel exhibits.

Wilmington artist, David A. Norris, has a BFA degree from the East Carolina University School of Art.  Long settled in the Port City, he finds the historic atmosphere of Wilmington and the natural beauty of the Cape Fear River and the coast provide limitless sources of artistic inspiration.  Most of David’s work reflects the landscapes of the places where he has lived or visited.  Through his interest in art history, his work has absorbed influences such as English watercolors, 19th century engravings, Japanese woodblock prints, Dutch Baroque landscapes, and Van Gogh’s reed pen drawings.  David recently has begun a series of monoprints that combine printing techniques with color pencils and lithograph crayons. They build on and compliment a long-standing series of regional cityscapes and landscapes done in watercolor and color pencil. He also works in other media ranging from black and white pen drawings to silverpoint, scrimshaw, linoleum block prints, and collage.

Some of the Curtis Krueger’s earliest memories are of his father and him drawing at the dining room table. He was told our television broke down when he was in kindergarten and his parents, although they could afford to repair it decided not to.  Curtis places much of his fascination with the art-world with their encouragement and direct participation. The lack of television as entertainment is another. Curtis studied art at Eastern Michigan University, earning a BFA, along with two teaching certificates. It was in school where he took a darkroom class and got the incurable photo bug.  For the last 25 years he has earned a living selling my photos at various art festivals and galleries across America. Traveling is a big part of his schedule. Half the year is taking up with either shows or photo gathering trips. On an average year Curtis travels 30,000 miles and shoots 50,000 images.

As of right now Fourth Friday receptions, held during the Arts Council of Wilmington’s Fourth Friday Gallery Night are on hold until January of 2020.  Stay tuned for other virtual opportunities! 

The exhibit continues through September 6, 2020.

“Contemporary Art with Bradley Carter, Elizabeth Singletary & Jen Johnson” is a new exhibit playfully pairing contemporary artists with painting and paper. These Wilmington based artists design work that evolve fluently through the creative process.

Currently the opening reception, is scheduled for Friday, September 11, from 6-9pm. Stay tuned for more details.  Visit with our artists and enjoy refreshments with live music by guitarist, Roger Davis. 

American Artist, Bradley Carter, is an award winning, international selling artist who grew up pursuing his passion for art in Virginia before moving to the North Carolina in 2007, where he currently resides in Wilmington, NC. He predominately works in the medium of painting with his passion in Abstract Expressionism, but his works also include collage, paint skins, and furniture.

The colorful bits and pieces of Elizabeth Singletary’s life are imitated in her chosen art form of collage—a mix of down-home charm and sweeping sophistication. Her great appreciation for nature is incorporated in her artwork, which she describes as “painting with paper.” She works alone, with music playing in the background, and offers up a prayer that her works will be full of light and inspire happiness. She hides secret imagery in each piece, giving gazers a happy little hunt-and-find exercise each time they look at her collages. This fun and lively approach to art has garnered much attention. Elizabeth’s commissioned pieces are unique as they incorporate family photos, mementos, quotes, and personal imagery hidden within. Her artwork has been commissioned for many corporate and private collections.

Our photography feature, Jen Johnson creates photographs that are a contemplative inquiry into psychological space, place, memory, loss, and longing. Her dreamlike photographs explore the beauty and complexity of the search for home in our ever-changing interior and exterior landscape. Jen’s images reflect the metaphorical way she sees the world as a visually impaired photographer.
