Place of Sense

When: June 6-24 2017

Now in its fifth year, the Creative Mentorship Program of the Durham Art Guild teams high school students with the accomplished visual artists among its ranks. This year's presentation, Place of Sense, is the result of twenty-week collaborations between five students and mentor artists to complete projects of the students' design. The results demonstrate a diversity of artistic visions, from a mixed-media work that examines the notion of home to a combination of photography and painting that explores female empowerment and cultural heritage. Elsewhere, one young artist and his mentor incorporated the nontraditional elements of role-play and narrative while another team looked at the concept of courage through adversity by means of iconography from graphic novels. Uniting these efforts is an attempt by the young artists to reflect on their place in our tumultuous times. After this opening reception the exhibit runs for most of June. —David Klein
