Light in Line – work of Lisa Stinson and Tim Turner @ Claymakers Gallery
May 26 @ 1:00 pm – Jun 30 @ 6:00 pm

Artists Lisa Stinson and Tim Turner combine strengths in this two-person show. Stinson is exhibiting selections from several bodies of work, including illustrative pieces from her “Time Marking,” “Arabesque,” and “Textere” series. Hung as wall pieces, these works complement a collection of Turner’s functional pottery. Both artists prefer unassuming forms on which to work surface inflections and layer painterly glazes. Both often choose treatments that convey a sense of inner luminosity emerging through strata. A multi-part installation from the “Textere Series” – collaborative work by Stinson and her husband, glass artist Ken Carder (above) – seems almost a three-dimensional extraction of the intuitive, gestural linear decorations found throughout the show.

Loud Color Luminous Sound: Parasol B @ The Carrack
Jun 21 @ 11:00 am – Jun 24 @ 5:00 pm

Memo from the desk of Curator, Kerry Crocker:

Please join me in June for “Loud Color Luminous Sound”, an exhibit of interactive, colorful, noise-making skulpturs and assemblages which were rescued from imminent demise in the parallel timeline which we designate as Timethread “B”. Until recently these artwerks had been misplaced in storage since the time they were transported to my timethread, in late 1971. The artist signed these werks using the name “Parasol”. For the exhibit of these artefakts we will attribute the pieces to Parasol “B”. The artist states through the werk, clearly, that art should be touched, interacted with, played with, to be fully experienced.

Come visit to experience these werks and learn more about their history.

Presented by the TimeScience Alliance, Office of Artefakts

Open Thu-Sun 11am-5pm

The Sticky Note Show @ The Carrack
Jun 29 – Jul 1 all-day

A FUNDRAISER FOR THE CARRACK
This summer, The Carrack is mixing things up. We present The Sticky Note Show, a new take on our summer of community show and fundraiser. #stickwithus

Inspired by the legendary yearly show at Giant Robot 2 in Los Angeles, all of the art has one common characteristic–the medium is a sticky note.

We are seeking miniature art that is presented on a standard size (3” x 3” square) sticky note of any color.

TO PARTICIPATE
-All artists are welcome to submit artwork.
-All artwork submitted is a gift to The Carrack for the purpose of fundraising.
-All sticky note works of art will be sold for the same price.
-Artists are encouraged to submit multiple works of art.
-Diptychs, triptychs, etc. are welcome and will be displayed as intended by the artist but will be sold as individual pieces.
-Challenging the medium by adding to a sticky note as a substrate is welcome, as long as it can support its weight when stuck to the wall.
-Works of art will not be labeled, but artists are welcome to include identifying information on the front or back of their work.
-Please keep a few extra sticky notes adhered behind your work in order to preserve the “sticky”.
-Please place your artwork(s) in an envelope along with any special display instructions (i.e. diptych, triptych, etc.)
-All works will be sold for $5, to benefit The Carrack.

DROP-OFF
The deadline for dropping off artwork is 5pm on Sunday, June 24, but we strongly encourage early drop-off.

Drop off your artwork at The Carrack any time during open hours, Thursday – Sunday from 11am – 5pm. Or, drop it in the mailbox by our front door any time. Artwork may also be mailed to The Carrack at 947 East Main Street, Durham, NC 27701.

The Durham Arts Council’s 2019 Emerging Artists Program Information Session @ Chatham Arts Council Office
Jul 10 @ 6:00 pm

Online applications are now available for the 2019 Emerging Artists Grant Program. The Emerging Artists Program (EAP) is a project grant program that provides financial support to developing or established professionals by funding a project pivotal to the advancement of their careers as artists. Pivotal projects may happen at different stages of a career; therefore Emerging Artists Grants are not restricted to “unestablished” artists. 2019 Emerging Artists Grants are intended to fund a particular project that will occur between January 1 – December 31, 2019. Eligible applicants must be current residents of Durham, Orange, Chatham, Granville or Person Counties (NC) and have lived in that county since September 21, 2017, be at least 18 years of age and cannot be enrolled in a degree program in their art form.
