HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 24, 2010 – Bruce Shores, instructor of visual arts at High Point University, will be showcasing his artistic talents at The Artery Gallery in Greensboro.
Shores will have an art exhibition, “Landscapes of Paint,” and an opening reception to showcase some of his work. The reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on March 6 at the gallery, located at 1711 Spring Garden St. in Greensboro. The paintings will be on exhibit through March 31.
Shores’ show consists of 18 small landscape paintings of rural farmland and coastal scenes of North Carolina.
“The paintings are an intensive study of how an individual brushmark can celebrate the color and light of these special places,” Shores says. “They were completed over the course of the last year.”
Shores says as a professor, it?s important to share these paintings with his students to help relay the painting process.
“I let them see the creation of a painting in the studio, as well as taking it into the gallery space and the public eye,” Shores says. “From this, they gain a view into what this experience is in real life. The students get first-hand knowledge that they can apply to their own unique learning path. The studio artist can apply the knowledge to their own artistic career; for the art theory student, there is an impact that they could not receive in any other way.”
Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call 336-274-9814 or visit http://www.arterygallery.com/ for more information.
