Meet the potters:

Christina Bendo grew up  helping her parents grow food in the red clay rich soil of Virginia.  It seems a natural progression that she now works in a craft that uses the same raw materials needed to grow food to make objects used to serve it.  After earning her B.A. at the University of Mary Washington, she went on to complete a three year assistantship with Trista Chapman.  She has been a resident at LibertyTown Arts Workshop, the International Ceramics Studio in Hungary, STARworks Ceramics, and Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts. Her current body of work uses local clay slips collected from her ramblings to add another physical and symbolic layer to her pots.

Brooke Avery grew up and currently resides in Trinity, NC. Always having a passion for art and creativity, she went on to study art and design at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. It wasn’t until there where she fell in love with clay. After graduating college, she went on to being a full time potter and teaching pottery classes at local art studios. Her background of art and design really shines through on each piece of pottery that is created. Brooke loves teaching and sharing her knowledge of clay with others, that’s why she is currently going back to school to get her Art Education license, so she can teach art in a public school one day. Outside of teaching, making pottery and going to school, Brooke loves to spend time with her friends and family.

Reception:
Tues., May 1, 2018 @ 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Lunch and Learn
Tuesday, May 29, 2018 @ 12 noon – 1 pm

For the month of May, The Randolph Arts Guild will be having the C.A.R.E. Artists in the Sara Smith Self Gallery, with the opening reception on Tuesday May 1st from 5:30-7:30pm and a lunch & learn on Tuesday May 29th from 12n-1pm. Here’s the C.A.R.E. Artists Mission Statement and their artists bios to learn more about C.A.R.E. and the artists in the gallery!

Our Mission Statement

We are creating a body of art to raise awareness of vulnerable and endangered species existing in our region. Our mantra is “think globally, act locally.” Some of the animals that attract us are not on any list of being threatened. Think of them as the supporting cast. They are the ones that perhaps will touch your heart to make you more aware and fond of the animal kingdom. There is a wonderful relationship between art and conservation. Art engages the viewer and is inspiring and informative. Art can evoke an emotional response, not only capturing the soul and essence of the subject, but also that of the artist. With the North Carolina Zoo, the Greensboro Science Center, Duke Lemur Center, the Conservators’ Center and many other rescue organizations in our region, we have a lot of art to create, and so as a group, we can be more effective. Our goal is to present this work for the benefit of the establishments where the animal resides. Our artists’ goals are to raise awareness, and to donate a portion of any artwork sold to the organization being sponsored at that time.

Artists of C.A.R.E.:
Karine Thoresen
Addren Doss
Andrea Hennings
Alexis Lavine
Tucker Bailey

Artist’s Statement – Karine Thoresen 

Karine Thoresen is a Nationally and Internationally recognized oil painter specializing in animals. Born and raised in Norway, she came to the US after high-school and studied art with the Hicks Art Center in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Almost 25 years would pass before making art her full time career. She started out painting canines because they have always occupied positions in the animal world that were closest to our affections and they continue to play roles that mirror the activities and needs of the humans they live with. Since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, her focus has shifted to birds, fearing great loss in the Gulf. This intensified her passion and interest in depicting and intimately portraying animals as ambassadors for their species. Her goal is to raise awareness of these animals through her art. Karine makes her home in Greensboro, North Carolina. You can visit her website at www.KarineThoresen.com

 

Artist’s Statement – Addren Doss

“Light falling across an object, tree, beloved pet. The broken color and textures created with pastels and oils. The whisper of the pastel as it glides across a sanded surface. The movement, push and pull of the oil paint as it is applied with a knife. These are the things that excite me and call for me to paint them.” Animals are one of Addren Doss’ favorite subjects to paint. Be it a beloved pet, a farm animal, or wildlife, they all speak to her. For Addren it is all about the eyes and the texture of the fur. Collectors treasure her pet portraits. Many say they can see the soul of the animal in the eyes, and many have described her cow and bull paintings as “full of attitude”. Addren has been painting professionally for over 25 years, and her paintings can be found in many private and corporate collections across the country and internationally. She studied painting, drawing and sculpture at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She also studied with noted pastel artists, Ann Tempelton and Albert Handell who has been her mentor for many years. She is a juried master signature member of Women Artists of the West, member of excellence of The Southeastern Pastel Society, associate member of the Pastel Society of America, member of the Pastel Society of North Carolina, and a founding/charter member of The Piedmont Outdoor Painting Society. She is represented by Peacock Alley in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and Tyler White O’Brien Gallery in Greensboro, North Carolina.www.addrendoss.com

 

Artist’s Statement – Andrea Hennings 

Andrea Hennings was born in Koblenz, Germany in 1963 and currently lives and work in Greensboro, NC. Mostly self-taught, but inspired and supported by her likewise artistically talented father, she developed her realistic style, preferably expressed through acrylic on canvas. Andrea’s blog can be found at: http://ahennings.blogspot.com/

 

Artist’s Statement – Alexis Lavine 

My watercolor paintings appear to be realistic … but they are thoughtfully conceived, strategically designed, and carefully drawn around abstract shapes, values, colors, movement, and positive and negative spaces. I believe that my approach gives my work a more contemporary feel, and results in paintings which convey my personal reaction to my subject, not merely the visual facts. I have been a passionate “plein air” painter for many years, and take tremendous pleasure from painting outdoors, on location, wherever I am inspired by the landscape. Recently, I have been spending more in my studio, where I can slow down my brush and take more time to design and craft my paintings with the utmost of care, to create the most impact in my work and communicate with my viewers as effectively as possible. I have discovered a new fascination with the clothed human figure, and have been focusing on telling stories, through the use of grouping, cropping, and placement of the figures within my picture plane. Education is tremendously important. I earned two bachelor’s degrees and a master’s degree, before embarking on my path as a painter. I continue to study art whenever possible, and I also teach painting and drawing classes and workshops. I love to speak about art, share my experience and knowledge, and help my students achieve greater success. I was recently honored as “One to Watch” by Watercolor Artist Magazine. My paintings have been published in Splash, The Artistic Touch, The Best of Watercolor, and Watercolor Artist. Creative Art Press has published a six-DVD instructional series, called “Creative Watercolor Using Photographs” featuring my watercolor demos. I am a signature member of the National Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Watercolor West, North East Watercolor Society, and Southern Watercolor Society. My work can be found in galleries in the mid-Atlantic and Southern states, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.You can see many of my paintings and learn more about my art and my teaching by visiting my website. www.alexislavineartist.com

 

Artist’s Statement – Tucker Bailey

My goal is to depict my subjects with thoughtfulness, sensitivity and respect. I try to be true to the anatomy of each animal along with bringing out its personality and soul, making my sculpture at once an internal and external expression. My life has been one of studying art, animals and their way of being. I have always lived in the country surrounded by nature and my own animals, horses included, which are a great inspiration to me. I have several sculptures at the North Carolina Zoological Park and in private and corporate collections across the United Statesand Canada. I am a Signature Artist with the Society of Animal Artists and have won two Award of Excellence medals and the Evelyn and Peter Haller Award. My work has been included in many “Art and the Animal” tours at museums across the country, including a special exhibit at The National Geographic Society in Washington DC. I am also a Signature Member Artist with The American Women Artists and have won a Silver Medal (over-all) for Signature Members, the Leonard J. Meiselman Award and the Award of Recognition for 3 Dimensional. Other awards have been won at The Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club (Anna Hyatt Huntington Bronze Medal), The American Artists Professional League, the Allied Artists of America and the Pen and Brush. NPR did a segment on my art on Voices and Viewpoints and the Winston Salem Magazine did a story on me, my work and home in their Step Inside article.
More of my paintings and sculpture may be seen at my website.www.tuckerbailey.com

Teacher Profiles

As a graduate from The University of North Carolina-Greensboro School of Music, with a Bachelors in Music, Tamara has placed her focuses on the therapeutic side of music, and it’s effects on the brain.  She has been directing adult choirs for 17 years and  Children and Youth choirs for more than 10 years.

Over the years, she has studied several instruments such as clarinet, sax, piano, guitar, and ukulele though her major focus has been on vocal styles such as classical and jazz solo work, chamber and chorale as well as modern and classic accapella styles.

She studied and played clarinet and sax in concert, jazz and marching styles, but after attending UNCG, fell in love with the Old Time culture of music, where she played acoustic guitar and ukulele with the UNCG Old Time Ensemble.

Following in the footsteps of her friend and luminary Adrienne Bailey, Tamara came to the Randolph Arts Guild to teach adult piano classes in hopes to expand music education to people of all ages.  While she believes “fun” is a vital element of learning music, her focuses in music education are based on a ternary system of technique, theory and history, in order to allow students a full music education on each instrument.

Performance Experience

  • Various vocal styles and settings, including popular (pop, rock and country), choirs, chorales, vocal jazz, accapella trios, and chamber settings.

  • Acoustic guitar and ukulele ensemble setting as well as accompaniment.

Mark Dillon’s life as musician started well before his birth. His grandfather was a founder of the 1930’s country act The Lonestar Players, a Depression era country band that played that played throughout the United States in the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s. His great uncle, Hank Jones, in addition to being with the Lone Star Players was the host of Louisiana’s Old South Jamboree from 1962 till 2001. Other members appeared on the Grand Ole Opry stage in the 50’s and 60’s. Mark was raised with the personal stories of Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, George Jones and other country greats. This is the foundation that Mark Dillon’s own music is built on.

Mark’s history as a professional musician is interesting in its own right. Raised near Rolling Prairie, IN (pop. 657) on land that was historically a Miami Indian campsite and a Methodist Minister’s retreat. He started playing guitar at the age of 5 and after graduating in the bottom quarter of his class, he went against all his parent’s wishes and studied music as (ha, ha, ha) a profession.  Mark established the repair shop at Front Porch Music in Valparaiso, Indiana and actually started to make a decent, respectable living. While in Valparaiso he established the Songwriters Association of Northern Indiana (SWANI) as well as studied songwriting and guitar with the likes of Norman Blake, Donovan, John Hartford, Steve Gillette, Martin Simpson and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

Mark began teaching English as well as directing high school band in Chatham County, NC.  He is often invited to speak at conferences and educational events on the subject of roots music education as well as music history. He currently plays guitar and banjo with The Zinc Kings, a band dedicated to preserving the music of the North Carolina piedmont. He also continues his solo career although it seems greatly slowed by the other demands of life.

Mark, who is currently the Music Technology Professor at GTCC, will be leading our Music Historical Series on the cultural influences of music in the U.S.

Performance Experience

  • Performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, (on tenor banjo)
  • Premiered jazz pieces with trombone legend JJ Johnson
  • Busked his way around Ireland.
  • He’s appeared on a Kerrville songwriters compilation with the likes of Steve Gillette, Kevin So, and Chuck Brodski.
  • He has appeared as multi-instrumental musician and producer on 15+ cds and in 2000 released his first solo album “A Certain Slant of Light” followed by “Apple Barn” in 2005.
  • His stage show is known for its diversity ranging from the country tunes learned in his youth to the 12 string Middle Eastern slide pieces he is known to undertake when the mood seems appropriate.

 .

Andrew John Miraran Lyon (A.J.) is currently a student at Randolph Early College High School as a Junior, and is double majoring with an Associate’s Degree in Arts as well as an Associate’s in Business Administration.  After graduation he plans on continuing his degree in Music Theory and Composition with aspirations to become a choral and orchestral composer.
With over ten years of experience as a pianist, A.J. frequently plays for recitals, various NC piano competitions, as well as accompanies various church choirs in the area.
As a private piano instructor at the Randolph Arts Guild, he hopes to share the experiences he has learned over the years to help others become skilled pianists, while having fun.

A.J. is currently accepting new students ages 7-18.
