We believe that a strong commitment to the arts is an important part of our vision for the community. As part of Our Focus on regional cultural arts, the Foundation’s office space also serves as a rotating art gallery, for two main reasons: to support and foster local artists, and to encourage our community to connect and engage in meaningful conversation inspired by art. The Triangle Community Artists Gallery, housed within our office space at the Frontier in partnership with the Durham Art Guild (DAG), hosts juried artwork from local artists for periods of six months at a time. All of the art on display, unless marked, is available for purchase. We are proud of this partnership with DAG, our jury of community leaders and arts-minded fundholders, and the artists we have the great pleasure of showcasing each cycle.
The gallery is open during business hours (M-F, 8:30 am- 5 pm). We are located at 800 Park Offices Drive, Suite 201, Research Triangle Park. Please contact our Office Assistant Holly Moore at 919.328.4002 in advance if you’d like to stop by so that we are available to welcome you. We hold an opening reception at the start of each new exhibit cycle, you can find out more information and rsvp to current events here.
Current Art Exhibit
Artist: Moriah LeFebvre | Exhibit Title: Hometown Inherited | Exhibit Description: Moriah has spent the past three years examining the changing face of our city in her series “Hometown (Inherited).” She captures transitional moments by photographing local parents and their children in locations that are in a state of flux. From these images, Moriah has created a series of mixed media pieces, each composed of 20-24 photographic prints layered and collaged onto canvas and then hand-painted with acrylic paint. | Exhibit Dates: August, 2017 – January, 2018 | Art Reception: Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 4 – 6:30 pm. This event is open to the public.
