From the Facebook event:
Durham Arts Council proudly invites you to the free, public opening of the visual arts exhibit “Portraits of Durham,” a Durham 150 event, on March 15, at 6 pm. The exhibition features work by 64 local artists, from high school students to accomplished professionals, each sharing their interpretation of what defines Durham. The show runs from March 15-May 2 in the Semans and Allenton Galleries of the Durham Arts Council.
As part of the Durham150 commemoration, Durham Arts Council issued an open call to the community for artwork to be included in a group exhibit. Applicants responded to the prompt “Who or what represents Durham to you? The Durham Arts Council is asking visual artists to submit work that captures the spirit and diversity of the Bull City.” This public call for art yielded close to 200 pieces submitted by area creators. 95 pieces were selected to represent Durham’s people, places and lifestyle.
Join us on March 15 to celebrate Durham’s character and creativity, and lend your support to a stellar group of area makers:
