In bloom, antje shiflett

thursday, january 31 - friday, march 15, 2019

Antje Shiflett was born in a small town on the North Sea in Germany and lived in many other countries before she settled in Alamance County a number years ago. Painting in oils, she creates landscapes and florals inspired by memories of places she has lived as well as her current surroundings. She has successfully participated in many art exhibitions and had numerous one woman shows; her style is her own and her palette recognizable. She is a member of the Alamance Artisans Guild and member and docent of Alamance Arts in Graham.

Shiflett says “The great part about being a painter is that I never stop learning and changing. Landscapes and flowers are my favorite subjects. I use oil paints and a palette knife which moves me away from precision and lines and helps me focus on how the push and pull of color and shapes create the image. I am braver now which makes it even more fun. What or how I paint has also a lot to do with which color excites me at this moment and the music I listen to. At the end of the day, I will have a smile on my face and hope that whoever looks at my work senses the pleasure I got and feels some of the excitement I felt during the time I put the paint on canvas.”

Mo.Arts arts collaborative

friday, february 22 - sunday, april 21, 2019

The notion of an art group was first introduced by Roger Moore, who believed it was essential to expose the hidden art talent in the community. Several artists needed a location where they could showcase their work, feel welcomed, and appreciated. Thus, the idea of a local art show stirred the works.

In spring of 2018, Roger began planning and promoting art shows at the H-Co Property building, located on East Davis St. in Burlington, NC. He united many local artists together and organized 3 successful shows calling them, Art Collab. Realizing the potential of these local shows he recruited Stephanie Ruiz, Karina Morales, Akuna Hinton, Billy Willis, and Ellen Barnes to establish the art group Mo Arts. Mo Arts aims to display a spotlight on all artists who would like to share their gift.

Our motivation sprouts from being able to share diversity in a city that lacks unity. All artists who have been featured in the shows have different upcoming, all with different stories. Not one artist is similar, from their choice of style to, their choice of medium. We’re able to hear one another and celebrate talents as a group. The artist’s role in our society, is displaying determination in one’s self. We’re able to publicize the importance of believing you can make an impact with just an intention. Mo Arts has been recognized as a group who innovates and encourages artists to brand themselves. We’re the energy they might need to pursue their dreams.

Mo Art’s future objectives are to expand into an extensive network of artists who would then own a local art studio or permanent art exhibit in Downtown Burlington. Our target is to not only showcase artists but to create a profitable customer base. This is only the commencement to an astonishing year of forthcoming projects. Featured artists are Karina Morales, Gregorio Morales, Beth Sheffield, Akuna Hinton, Carol Taylor, Daniel Frost, Billy Willis, Stephanie Ruiz, Ellen Barnes and Barbara Scott.

The Paramount Theater is open Monday - Saturday, 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm and one hour prior to all Paramount Theater events and productions.

friday, february 22 - sunday, april 21

A native of Alamance County, Mebane artist Milton Hall is a graduate of the School of Art at East Carolina University and retired in 2008 after a thirty-year career teaching high school visual art in the Alamance-Burlington School System.  During this time, he also worked as a freelance illustrator creating artwork for local, state and national publications. 

Seeking to explore a new medium, he began creating three-dimensional work using papier-mâché.  As a way of combing a lifelong passion for art and music, Hall began a series of realistic and abstract musical instrument sculptures.  These sculptures are painted in a faux finish to resemble stone or metal while remaining very light in weight.  Many of these works are in the collections of musicians and music lovers across the United States.  In his latest work, “Enter My Dream”, other subjects are also represented including faces, fish, birds and abstract geometric structures.

Following his retirement from public education, he continues to teach private lessons at his home studio and high school art classes at Burlington Christian Academy.  In addition to his current sculpture work, Hall also does commissioned portrait paintings.

The Mebane Arts and Community Center is open Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 pm.
