Greenhill, Greensboro’s center for everything visual arts, will be having an exhibition opening that features works from the artists John Beerman and Noé Katz tonight, April 11 from 5:30-8:30pm. The premiere exhibition is in accordance with their ongoing art series, Two Artists | One Space, which focuses on simultaneously exposing the talents of two artists in Greenhill’s 7,000 square foot gallery. This event highlights Greenhill’s purpose of promoting the work of contemporary North Carolina visual artists, and ArtsGreensboro is happy to be the presenting sponsor for this special exhibit!
Both Katz and Beerman are North Carolinians who have accomplished both national and international recognition for their artistic creations. John Beerman, who currently resides in Hillsborough, North Carolina, obtained a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. Following his schooling, Beerman moved to Nyack, New York to live and work for over 30 years. Much of his artwork depicts North Carolina landscape and he is also known for his number of beautiful works portraying the Hudson River Valley. His pieces have been featured in many establishments, some being The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. A mix of his new and recently shown works will be presented to North Carolina audiences for the first time at the exhibition opening tonight.
Fellow North Carolina artist, Noé Katz, studied at the School of Design and Handicrafts in Mexico City, as well as the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy. Katz is often compared to artists of Mexican Modernism in that his work is multi-disciplinary and is representative of two and three dimensional art forms. His experience spans drawing, painting, sculpture, and mural painting, all containing interesting blends of figures with objects and landscape. His intriguing creations have been included at exhibitions in the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City, the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, California, and the Tokoro Museum of Modern Art in Japan. Like Beerman, his pieces will be shown for the first time to North Carolina audiences at the exhibition premiere.
