Cinc Hayes's Whimsical Paintings at Carrboro Town Hall

Cinc Hayes will have a variety of whimsical paintings on display at the Carrboro town hall for the June 9th art walk.

Cinc Hayes’s artwork is inspired by many years of traveling across the world. A Chapel Hill native, he has journeyed across the USA, Canada, Europe, Eastern Europe, Central America, Africa, Scandinavia, to the edges of the North Pole and back again. Energies of these landscapes, people and animals reveal themselves through vibrant layers of color and texture on canvas. Memories and thoughts are captured in a single storyboard under disparate circumstance; a story to tell with no beginning or end. The layers of paint, fabric, sequins, sparkles and found objects form a collective expression that under closer inspection, the viewer can explore, and get lost in. Thus the viewer creates their own story, their own piece of art—and connection to it.

Roger Kellison at Carrboro Town Hall

Roger Kellison at Carrboro Town Hall

The Town of Carrboro invites you to enjoy the artwork by Roger Kellison that will be  displayed in Town Hall and Russell Scott Day in the Century Center Gallery. Show starts January 5th and runs through the end of February.

Special hours for 2nd Friday ARTWALK . 6-9 pm. Galleries are open to the public during regular business hours for the buildings.  

Roger Kellison: BRIEF BIO:

Mr. Kellison recently resumed taking pictures after a 40 year hiatus: digital cameras and printers lured him back. His eclectic photos frequently depict the unplanned and often ironic beauty in the decay of man’s enterprises: huge or small, urban or rural, important or sheer folly – they are often funny and sometimes sad – but all are a part of our best efforts to achieve a meaningful life.


ARTIST STATEMENT: 

In addition to collage pieces, my images are often drawn from deserted factories, torn posters on city walls, abandoned automobiles and other types of life's residue. The boarded doors, layers of pasted papers, and rusted grillwork, for me, are the tangible evidence of the hopes, dreams, hard work, planning and effort that produced them or the objects and events they advertise.

Sometimes their passing leaves behind a beautiful residue of color and form - most times not. Regardless they eventually are forgotten, revert to a natural state, and disappear into obscurity. I sometimes try - with meager success - to document the passing of life's products.

Pat Perrin

Town hall.PNG

Pat has long been both a visual artist and a writer. In the 1960s-80s her artwork was exhibited in Southeastern U.S. galleries and museums, including major juried shows at the Virginia Museum; the Charlotte, NC, Mint Museum of Art; the Athens, GA, Lyndon House Art Center; and Southern Sculpture, a seven-state traveling exhibit. She has also shown her work in the Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende. Pat has had one-woman shows in Virginia and Mexico, and her awards include a national prize from MacWorld magazine for computer art.

Although Pat has worked in many visual media, in recent years she has turned to the warm, organic qualities of natural fibers, paper, and stones. Using some of the same stitches used by traditional lace makers, she creates structures much like those she once did in metal.

She says—The fibers seem more alive. Although I’ve made paintings and prints, most of my work tends to get three-dimensional. I think that makes me more immediately aware of the artwork as a thing itself, rather than a representation. All art, however, is the creation of something that wasn’t there before. So is writing. I’m drawn to the creative experience—that act of discovery that can change everything.

Martha Thorn

Martha Thorn is an artist based in Raleigh, NC. She got her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Graphic Design from Western Carolina University. She began painting in 2007, marrying her background in design with a process driven approach to painting. 

Her work has been exhibited at GreenHill, The Carrack Modern and other venues throughout the Southeast.

Artist statement

Line and drawing are the most important elements in my paintings. Texture and design follow, with color being only a vehicle through which I can persuade an audience to look at my work. I am a process painter who paints as intuitively as possible.

I begin by setting parameters for myself through canvas dimensions or tools that I allow myself to use and then try to approach the work while breaking all other parameters set for me or by me in the past, particularly as a graphic designer. This is the most critical and honest stage. Then I start to "clean up," hopefully reducing the chaos in a painting by just one degree so that it becomes a successful, cohesive painting bordering on the brink of disaster.

The dichotomies of chaos and peace, dirty and clean, and ugliness and beauty are recurrent themes in my work. Though these are not new themes in art my hope is to execute and present them in a fresh, authentic way.


Exhibit displayed from Oct 2nd through the end of November - also at Carrboro Century Center

Janet Sammons’ exhibit, “Birds, Beasts, and More” at the Carrboro Town Hall

Janet Sammons’ exhibit, “Birds, Beasts, and More” at the Carrboro Town Hall

Janet Sammons’ exhibit, “Birds, Beasts, and More” will continue for another month at the Town of Carrboro’s Century Center and Town Hall.  Fifty paintings will remain on exhibit between the two venues in which the acrylic artist showcases her love of nature.  Painting subjects range from birds and animals to lovely landscapes and flowers to seascapes and still life.  The exhibit runs through September 30, 2014.

Janet Sammons was born and raised in Salem Virginia, but received her B.A. in English Literature at The University of North Carolina and has lived in Chatham County for 26 years.  Thanks to the support of a loving husband, Janet chose to leave the stress of the corporate world in 2011 to pursue a long-neglected dream of becoming an artist, and learned how to paint using the bountiful resources online.  The artist states that she had previously attempted watercolor painting by taking various local classes on and off for about ten years without much success, but when she tried acrylic paints in 2011, she quickly made great progress using this medium.

Part of the impetus to pursue her long-delayed dream of becoming an artist was due to an illness that resulted in a short bout of optic neuritis in the year 2000, in which Janet lost her eyesight for 3 days.  The artist expresses her gratitude for the quick recovery in her own words as she states, “I thank God for his glorious creation all around us that endlessly inspires, and for the sight to experience the colors, and dance of light and dark.”

As part of the 2nd Friday ArtWalk the two venues will be open from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, September 12.  The Carrboro Century Center is located at 100 N. Greensboro St. in Carrboro and their telephone number is 919-918-7385. The Town Hall is located at 301 W Main St, Carrboro, NC 27510, and their telephone number is (919) 942-8541.  Except for the 2nd Friday ArtWalk, their hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.  Additionally, the Century Center, which houses Carrboro’s Cybrary, is also open Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Town Hall Gallery: Is featuring photographs by Alicia Stemper. Form her artist statement: Although I always had a camera around my neck in high school and college, I did not explore photography as a career option. I studied English as an undergraduate and I earned my masters in social work. As a result, words were the vehicle I used to function in my career and to reflect on my observations about the world. 

Mark Twain said, “The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.” My partner gave me a digital DSLR camera on my birthday in 2010 and everything changed. I now want to use photography to reflect my observations and tell my stories. Light, color, patterns, and personality are what I try to capture and I especially love documenting Carrboro. As the photographer for the Carrboro Citizen for several years, I had a fantastic outlet to explore my passion and develop my skills. I call photography my “new lens on life” and I am excited to share it with others.

Century Center: Come and enjoy the photographs on display by Barry Udis. Mr Udis states,” From the moment I first started taking photos, on the college student European whirlwind trip, I have been interested in combining the beauty of the scene being shot with an usual way of presenting it. For me a photo captures my attention if it displays beauty in an unusual way or the context makes a statement, but also has an aesthetic quality that would make someone enjoy the vision while being provocative in some way. 

 Now that I am retired from UNC, I have time to find all the many spots where there is so much beauty and interesting subjects to shoot and study. It has always been such a great challenge to capture them in ways that are most satisfying to view. I now have to time to go both out into nature and wander our cities and villages.
