Local artist guild and community college to exhibit in Main Gallery
at Bank of the Arts
April 5 – May 2, 2019
Craven Arts Council and Gallery is proud to present the work of the Twin Rivers Artist Association and the visual arts students at Craven Community College in the Main Gallery at Bank of the Arts for the month of April. Craven Arts Council will hold a reception during the Artwalk, April 12th, from 5pm to 8 pm.
The Twin Rivers Artists Association (TRAA) exists to promote and encourage the creation, education, and appreciation of fine art in the region. The over one hundred strong membership meets monthly to learn and discuss techniques, provide feedback, make social connections, and distribute news on the arts in the area. Skill levels range from beginners to professional artists, in an environment that encourages cooperation and mentorship. Once a year the Craven Arts Council hosts an exhibition of the group’s membership, combined with students from the local Craven Community College, in order to encourage the creation and exhibition of local art. Works on display will include painting, photography, sculpture, pottery, and mixed media.
Heather Muise and Matt Egan will be the jurors for this year’s exhibition. Professors at East Carolina University, the duo are well respected in the printmaking field, having taught and exhibited at the local, national, and international levels.
