“Portraits of Durham” Exhibit at the Durham Arts Council
Durham Arts Council proudly invites you to the visual arts exhibit “Portraits of Durham,” a Durham 150 event, on view in the Semans and Allenton Galleries of the Durham Arts Council through May 2. The exhibition features work by 64 local artists, from high school students to accomplished professionals, each sharing their interpretation of what defines Durham.
As part of the Durham150 commemoration, Durham Arts Council issued an open call to the community for artwork to be included in a group exhibit. Applicants responded to the prompt “Who or what represents Durham to you? The Durham Arts Council is asking visual artists to submit work that captures the spirit and diversity of the Bull City.” This public call for art yielded close to 200 pieces submitted by area creators. 95 pieces were selected to represent Durham’s people, places and lifestyle.
A second reception will be held for the show on Friday, April 19 at 6pm – this reception, part of Third Friday Durham, will be free and open to the public.
Regular gallery hours are: 9am-9pm M-Sa, 1pm-6pm Sun
