Workshop - Healing Vets Art Workshop: Opportunities for Expression - April 27, 2019

 

Healing Vets Art Workshop:

Opportunities for Expression

@ Arts of the Pamlico’s

Historic Turnage Theatre

Call for Military Veteran Participants only

Arts of the Pamlico & Pamlico Rose Institute for Sustainable Communities (Rose Haven)

is partnering to offer a Military Veteran Art Program for Eastern North Carolina.

The Healing Vets Art Workshop is part of that Program.

 

The Healing Vets Art Workshop: Opportunities for Expression is open to all Veterans throughout

North Carolina and sponsored by Veterans Services Foundation.

 

The Workshop will be a chance for Veterans to work with local Washington, NC artists William Aley and

MaryAlice Johnston to create Garden Art Sculptures. These art sculptures will be permanently displayed in

the emerging Healing and Artful Gardens at Rose Haven Center of Healing

at 219 East 3rd Street, Washington, NC 27889.

 

The workshop will utilize the faces of the participating Veterans to create

a living memorial.  The Veterans will work with the artists to create

life casts of their faces in plaster, and then create clay faces from

the plaster molds.

 

The Veterans will also create individual wall panels for the faces to be mounted for display.

The artists will fire the completed masks to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, converting them into ceramic sculptures.

Each mounted ceramic face will be incorporated into an outdoor living

memorial art display and larger Garden Art Wall within the

Healing and Artful Gardens.

ArtsMarket is a biennial (every other year) conference featuring dozens of showcases at the historic Carolina Theatre of Durham, and over 130 exhibit booths at the Durham Convention Center! 

SIGN UP to receive email news and updates about ArtsMarket applications, registration, deadlines, and more!  (non-members only) 


ArtsMarket provides three days full of opportunities to see world-class performances in the historic Carolina Theatre, to network with colleagues from North Carolina and the surrounding region, and to sit back and enjoy some Southern hospitality. Conference activities take place in downtown Durham, where theatre, exhibit hall, and hotel are all in one connected footprint. Durham welcomes hundreds of presenter, artist, agent, vendor, and service provider delegates over the course of the conference.  ArtsMarket features up to three dozen juried showcase performances, and 130 exhibit booths at the Durham Convention Center

Presenter delegates come from all parts of North Carolina and the Southeastern region and represent a wide variety of arts organizations and venues, including small concert associations, colleges and universities, mid- and large-size performing arts centers, and everything in between.  Many of them look to ArtsMarket to book a significant part of their future seasons. In addition to the showcase performances, networking opportunities are abundant in the exhibit hall and at other scheduled conference activities.

ArtsMarket is co-produced by the North Carolina Presenters Consortium (NCPC) and the North Carolina Arts Council. Our shared belief is that presenting is an act of collaboration – between artists, manager, presenters, sponsors, and audiences – and we have designed ArtsMarket to foster a spirit of collaboration and collegiality.


 

“The best value, most impressive and best-run conference I’ve attended in years and years.”

“The warmth of the organizers, the high caliber of showcasing artists, and the professionalism throughout the event made this conference enjoyable and valuable.”

“We all came back bursting with ideas for next season.”


Durham is the place “where great things happen!”  Visit the Convention and Visitors Bureau site to help plan your trip.


ArtsMarket is supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
