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.”

Emily Weinstein

friday, December 21 - February 18, 2019

For over forty years, Emily Weinstein of Chapel Hill had made a living exclusively through her art.  She originated Murals-by-Many and Pet & People Portraiture in the eighties.  Through the NC Artist-in-residence program, she has brought art to under-served communities.  Her formal art education took place outside of London, a foundation year in Paris and a Bachelor degree from the Virginia Commonwealth University.

Early on in her career, Weinstein’s first manuscript was written during her three year sojourn living in a van, painting the unwinding scenery of America and Canada.  While that could read like the most telling and essential chapter of the artist's metaphorical book, it's really just the introduction.  


A champion of both environmental causes and animal welfare, Weinstein’s work is full of passion and storytelling whether it's the portraits of pet owners which drew her closer to animal causes, her moon paintings which illustrate ordinary landscapes bathed in magical moonlight, her lush floral and landscape paintings, or her monoprints of fascinating, quirky cats. But it's not just a love for places and animals which defines Emily Eve Weinstein. As a muralist, portraitist, and teaching artist, she has graciously encircled people into her work. While creating murals in various towns over the years, she realized that many of the youth were drifting about and getting into trouble. In response to this, Weinstein would hand them a brush and send them up the scaffolding to help. Recognizing their value to the community, she taught the youth important skills which enhanced their self-esteem.  As a result of encompassing the youth into her work, murals soon began to foster a new and intrinsic community value. Additionally, the work of Weinstein's legacy involves teaching volunteers to embellish furniture for "The Painted Chair and More Auction,” which benefits Independent Animal Rescue.

The most noteworthy and important work is her 25 Year Handmade Book Series which comprises her memoir and paintings presented together in a thematic book, released one per year as a volume, chronicles and reflects upon her work. Each book is of historical significance and documents what is currently taking place both in Weinstein's life and within society.

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 am - 5 pm.
