May 21 – June 28, 2019.
Artist Reception Thursday, May 23rd.
The Piedmont Painters consists of artists from the Hickory area, Lenoir, Morganton, and Denver, North Carolina.
The group was started by renowned artist and teacher, Jean Pollock in the early 80’s as a “critique” group with monthly meetings in members’ homes. Although the membership has evolved over the years, they continue to have monthly meetings where the artists bring recent works for all to view. Constructive critique and insight are offered as a means to encourage and advance each member’s artistic abilities. The group’s first member exhibit was in 1985 and since have exhibited frequently in galleries throughout the Piedmont area.
