I recently noticed that the Greenhill is going through a pretty cool revival of sorts. Located in downtown Greensboro I have had a career long infatuation with this particular art institution.
Starting with my declaration of Art as my major at UNC-Greensboro I first heard about Greenhill from my painting professor Andy Martin. He was having an exhibition of his work and he invited me to see the show. I remember being really impressed with the space and the curating of the show and I happened to see an announcement for the ‘Winter Show’ that was happening in December of that year.
I started inquiring around of my other professors and many of them were participating in the Winter show. I learned that it was ‘the place’ to show and that you would get a great audience of viewers.
It was then that my 20 year old self decided that I wanted to show my work in the Greenhill Winter Show one day. Well before the term ‘bucket list’ had entered my vocabulary I was determined to someday get my work into the Greenhill.

Fast forward many years and lo and behold I have had the honor and privilege to exhibit many works at the Greenhill and I have participated in a fair number of Winter Shows.
Not only do I excel at teaching but I am also very good at pointing.
My artistic life continues to grow and evolve and Greenhill is there all along my journey. I am now Associate Professor and Chair of the art department at High Point University where I now accompany my own students to see thoughtful and engaging exhibitions at the Greenhill.
So cheers to the Greenhill and I wish you continued artistic success!
