We invite you to join us for an evening reception with light fare, conversation with the artist, and a special peek into how the works are created.

Artist: Sharron Parker

Title: “Expressing Reality as Felt”

Exhibit Dates: August 2019 – January 2020

Exhibit Description: The Durham Art Guild and the Triangle Community Foundation present “Expressing Reality as Felt” featuring handmade felt works by Triangle-based artist Sharron Parker. “I use the ancient technique of feltmaking to capture something I’ve experienced, whether it’s very solid –I’m really drawn to rocks — or ephemeral, like reflections on water. My favorite quote is Robert Motherwell’s: ‘The function of the artist is to express reality as felt.'” 

About the Triangle Community Artists Gallery: As part of the Foundation’s focus on the arts, our office space also serves as a rotating art gallery. Through this partnership with the Durham Art Guild (DAG), we are supporting and fostering local artists, and to encouraging our community to connect and engage in meaningful conversation inspired by art. Each art cycle is celebrated with a reception featuring our newest artist, open to the public.
