New Art Gallery in Pittsboro, Fine Art and Fine Crafts
From The Pittsboro Gallery of Arts
The Pittsboro Gallery of Arts, near the center of downtown Pittsboro, began operating on Friday, Oct. 2. The Pittsboro Gallery of Arts is a for-profit organization, owned and operated by local and regional artists, whose purpose is to exhibit and offer an opportunity for art lovers and patrons to see, purchase and collect fine art and fine crafts. Additionally, the artists wish to raise awareness and appreciation for the visual arts and artistic crafts; promote artistic excellence and contribute to the cultural and economic welfare of the community.
The artists have been preparing to welcome the public to an exhibition of their fine art and fine craft. On display in the newly renovated gallery are the artistic creations of local and regional professional artists. The exhibit offers an opportunity for art lovers and patrons to see, enjoy, purchase and collect fine art and fine crafts.
The artists use a variety of techniques to create their pieces.
Paintings and drawings, done in oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel and pen and ink are among the selections of wall art exhibited in the gallery. Mixed media and collage images as well as photography, both black and white and color, add to the variety of art on display. Sculpture, mosaic, stained glass, decorative and functional pottery, elegant jewelry, tapestry and fiber art are all available.
The gallery is spacious, allowing for over 30 artists to show their creations, and there is an area for smaller artist-made gifts as well as space for art classes which are planned for the future.
The new gallery provides Chatham county and the surrounding region with high-quality fine art and fine craft created by regional artists and craftspeople. It is welcoming to see a new business in Chatham County that will contribute to the cultural and economic welfare of the community.
Because of the current pandemic situation, masks are required in the gallery, and while inside, please maintain social distancing.
