Success with our first Hang-Up Show

It was seen as a success! The Creative Center held its first Hang-Up show last weekend among all the many activities happening in GSO. We'd 45 entries... from the local colleges to interested artists wanting to display their work.  And they all looked really good together. 

The Creative Center would like to thank all of the artists who participated in this first show, as well as all of the residents at TCC who worked diligently on this project. 

Here are some of the photos made during the three day event.

First Annual Hang-up Show: Call for artists of all levels

Will look something like this.

Get Your Creative Hang Up on!  Greensboro and Guilford County are swarming with wannabe, blooming, and accomplished artists! The Creative Center Hang-Up Show is a golden opportunity for everyone to show their work in a non-juried open-to-all gallery situation for three days. 

This is not just a chance to exhibit and sell, but instead a meet-and-greet occasion for people to make new contacts and renew former connections. Tell your friends to bring their work, or just come see what’s up!

$5 fee for each entry.  Register at the door, or follow this link to download our 2 part-art form. Print, complete both sides, tape one copy to the back of your piece, and bring the second copy to registration table with your $5.

  • Friday, May 2, noon to 6 pm: Artist Registration. Bring only one piece of your 2-dimensional original art (painting, photography, collage, etc.), maximum size 36” x 36”, framed or gallery-style edges, and properly wired for hanging. Creative Center personnel will provide hooks and assist with your installation.
  • Saturday, May 3, 11 am to 5 pm: The Hang-Up Show is open to the public.
  • Sunday, May 4, noon to 6 pm: Closing reception, refreshments served. Art will be sold direct from artist (or artist rep) to buyer, and show comes down. 
  • Location: The Creative Center, 900 16th Street, Greensboro, NC 27405

A "House Concert" came to The Creative Center

A "House Concert" came to The Creative Center

As promised in this post, The Showcase Gallery was magically transformed from the wide open space you see above, into an inviting listening room setting. The event started with a covered dish brought by excited music lovers to share and visit with one another. Then at seven-thirty, Kris Ferris announced guitarist Drake Duffer who wowed the group of seventy-five plus people with his classical and funk guitar. (A must be seen and heard performance of the highest quality.) 

After the audience had been sufficiently wowed by this young man's time on our stage, Kris introduced the Martha Bassett Trio, which consisted of Martha Bassett, Sam Frazier, and Pat Lawrence. They performed not only their own original songs but also some of Martha's, of Sam's, and by other local musicians as well  And by they time they were in full-swing, there were probably 100 people clapping, whistling and smiling.  It was an evening of magical proportions. If you missed being there, we're sorry, but do plan to attend the next performance which will be May 6th. You can learn more about that event here.

Melody Watson shared her thoughts about the evening on The Collabative's website; you can read that over here.
