Pop-Up Resident: Ann Tilley

  NOVEMBER POP-UP RESIDENT | ANN TILLEY Since last Wednesday we’ve had the pleasure of having Ann Tilley join ArtQuest as a Pop-up Resident. Here’s why we don’t want her to leave: When considering an artist for Pop-up Residence at Greenhill we like to make sure that they possess a certain charm. A charm that I think ArtQuest is known for. Tilley brought just that! Her knitted and crocheted works bring together her love of poetry and typography, as well as symbolism through her own personal experiences. Her rich knowledge of textiles gives you that warm feeling you’re looking for this time of year. Not to mention, her charming knitting machine she uses for ...

ARTIST OF THE MONTH: BRANDON CORDREY

OCTOBER | ARTIST OF THE MONTH | BRANDON CORDREYBy: Toni Tronu This month I am super excited to introduce Brandon Cordrey, a mixed media collage artist, living in Raleigh, North Carolina. His works’ content frequently focuses on information transfer, thinking of humans as data processing units. He earned his BFA from East Carolina University in Painting and Drawing and his work has been exhibited across the state of North Carolina and Tennessee.I chose Brandon because many people feel berated by the amount of information they have to decipher on a day to day basis. Not only is his work hyper-relevant, but it seems to express these issues through a layered canvas with ...

Music and NC Art: First Fridays at Greenhill

Pop-Up Resident: Ann Tilley

We all consume art. ‘We’ being the viewers and the listeners; ‘art’ being physical, audible, and theatrical. When combined, the experience is not unlike the superhuman force heroes create when their powers combine (think, The Avengers).With Greensboro’s August First Friday, Greenhill once again opened its doors to the public, inviting the curious and the wandering into its gallery, see some art, enjoy some snacks, and have a good time.But come 6:30, the atmosphere changes. Dramatically.Bodies start moving. Toes are tapping. People are moving to a quick swift beat. For a magical hour, the gallery becomes a cozy concert hall decked out in artist work, the latest ...

What is an artist residency? ‘Surely,’ you say, ‘I know what that means.’ You’ll probably suggest that it’s when an artistic person stays at some institution under a sort of program that allows them to create work for a period of time.However, in practice, artist residencies focus heavily on cultural immersion. Common questions are: how much can we embed this artist in our community and, as a result, what will they stir up? What will they make? What sort of cultural exchange will occur?Greenhill strives to introduce vastly different artists into Greensboro’s ever-changing artist scene. Our last resident was Allison Luce who combined clay and collage ...

My Greenhill Internship

Pop-Up Resident: Ann Tilley

 My name is Rebekah Richardson and I am a Studio Art major at Appalachian State University. This summer, I completed a curatorial internship at Greenhill. This opportunity has familiarized me with the inner-workings of a non-profit art gallery. It’s been a valuable experience both as an artist and as someone who’s interested in arts management.  My biggest accomplishment of my time at Greenhill was co-curating an exhibition at Hemphill Library titled Cooking, Creating, Collaborating & Clay. The show was a joint exhibition which featured place settings of four North Carolina ceramicists as well as illustrated collages of recipes which were created by Learning ...
