Triangle Community Artists Gallery
As part of our focus on 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 a meaningful conversation inspired by art.
Current Artist: Eliza Redmann
The Durham Art Guild and Triangle Community Foundation present "Folded Poetry," from Eliza Redmann.
"This work is inspired by the persistent visual disturbances caused by my traumatic brain injury. Often when I look at patterns, they appear to swim or move on their own accord, much like an optical illusion. Through this work I seek to capture the structure of regular patterns and shapes while adding a layer of geometric information which the eyes and brain can't quite make sense of. In representing the symptoms of my traumatic brain injury visually, I challenge viewers to perceive outside of what is normal or traditional, just as I must now live, adapt, and navigate the world in new ways."
The Impact of COVID-19 and Racial Inequity on the Triangle Arts Community
In our fifth episode of What Matters: The Video Podcast series, our guests highlighted what is it like to be an artist during this time, what the arts do for our community, how funding can play into racial inequity, and from the donor perspective why is it so important to support the arts right now.
