A networking event for Modernist design fans
Gallery C in Raleigh, one of the Southeast’s leading fine art galleries, will host NCMH’s “Thirst4Architecture” (T4A) networking event on Thursday, September 18, from 6-8 p.m. T4A is free and open to the public.
Emilie Huin of Coldwell Banker, a specialist in Modernist real estate throughout the Triangle, is the T4A series sponsor for 2014.
During the evening, Gallery C’s founder and president, Charlene Newsom, will discuss mid-century Modern artists from North Carolina, which will include a special display of an abstract painting by the late Wilmington artist Claude Howell, who has often been characterized as the “dean of North Carolina painters.”
North Carolina Modernist Houses (NCMH) connects hundreds of Modernist design enthusiasts through its T4A events. The host business provides refreshments and other entertainment while attendees build relationships, create strategic alliances, and make new contacts.
“We welcome Modernist homeowners, architects and designers, artists, builders and contractors, furniture retainers, students, and anyone else with a huge crush on Modernist design,” said NCMH board chair George Smart.
Charlene Newsom founded Gallery C in 1985. Now located at 540 North Blount Street, the gallery reflects her expertise in contemporary art and historic Southern painting, cartography, and antique prints. It features over 30 contemporary artists as well as historically important North Carolina art, Haitian art, folk art, animation art and antique prints.
NCMH is an award-winning non-profit organization dedicated to documenting, preserving, and promoting Modernist residential design across the state. For the dates and locations of future T4A events, go to www.ncmodernist.org/t4a.
