“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.

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 October 11, 2020.
