Artworks 30th Anniversary Exhibition
December 28, 2014 - January
Artworks Gallery celebrates its 30th Anniversary with a Group Show. For our 30th Anniversary, each member created a piece of art for sale by silent auction. The works are wall mounted, 11” x 14”, in a variety of mediums. The auction began at the Gallery Hop on Friday, January 2, and ended at the 30th Anniversary Celebration on Sunday, January 11, at 4:00 pm.
In addition to the auction, the member artists are showing new work in the larger gallery.
Artworks Gallery began in 1984 when twenty Winston-Salem artists decided to form a cooperative gallery in order to have the freedom of expression that having their own gallery would afford them. Thirty years and many shows later, the gallery is still thriving. In 1990 the Gallery moved to its present home at 564 N. Trade St. on the corner of Sixth St. in the Arts District.
Currently there are 21 artist members. Members work in many mediums and styles, including painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, drawing, ﬁlm, and computer art. The Gallery mounts 12 shows a year, mostly two-person shows, with occasional solo and group shows. The artist members and volunteers keep the Gallery open ﬁve days a week, doing all the work required to keep the gallery going. Most openings coincide with an Arts District Gallery Hop, a community evening enjoyed by hundreds.
