Shape Maker and Entertainer

Prospectus

Exhibit Title: SHAPE MAKER AND ENTERTAINER

Exhibit Summary: SHAPE MAKER AND ENTERTAINER focuses on the FACT nothing observed has lines around it or within it. Everything is perceived by overlapping objects and directional surfaces that have highlights and shadows.

Artists truly “came out of the dark” in the Renaissance and began pictorial representation in terms of light and shade. There was even a word for it: chiaroscuro, chiaro meaning light and oscuro meaning darkness. Artists also recognize that we can draw an object by drawing the space around that object. Thus, we became even more skilled at creating shapes without being dependent on non-existing lines around and within the object being portrayed. We became shape makers.

Our exhibition SHAPE MAKERS AND ENTERTAINER is seeking two and three-dimensional expression that gives emphasis to shapes NOT lines. We do also recognize the role of color both warm and cool as well as pattern that can be used to create shapes and entertain the viewer.

Submission Requirements: Artists are invited to submit a maximum of two works using these guidelines. Work cannot weigh more than 50 lbs. and cannot be more than 5 feet in any direction. Two-dimensional work must have adequate hanging devices and 3-D work must have its own support. Entries must be original and cannot have been exhibited at RAG previously. Photography, photo montage and collage are welcome.

Fee: RAG members, $20. Nonmember, $55 to cover membership.

Awards: $200 for 1st, $100 for 2nd, and $50 for highest popularity vote.

Important Dates

  • Submissions Due: June 6, 2022, Entries are due and received at RAG (109 W 9th St., Lumberton), between 9:00-11:00 AM and 4:00-6:00 PM.

Featured Artist: Bobbie Britt

Bobbie Britt is the first featured artist of the recently founded Robeson Art Guild.  Her large vibrant abstract paintings make powerful statements throughout the hall gallery, throughout the administrative rooms, and in the main sales gallery; her smaller works surprise our visitors in the kitchen, in the front room gallery and other locations.

Plans are for our featured artists to have the luxury of exhibiting in all available spaces throughout the Guild House while the Blue Room Gallery is designated for a year of shows open to the “combined work of many” artists from the community, the region, and the state in response to themed invitational exhibitions.  These theme-response invitational shows will be competing for cash prizes through judges’ awards and viewer awards.

All works in all galleries can be for sale unless the artists choose to reserve them for various reasons.  Meanwhile. . . as Stephen Colbert says, what and who is the “featured artist?”

Featured Artist Bobbie Brit Artwork

Bobbie is a surprise herself.  She was reared in Blytheville, Arkansas, and attended the University of Mississippi and was graduated from Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri.  She and her sister, George Anne, shared a unique childhood in the “land of cotton” and both remember fondly their adventures in the “Deep South” as they worked in their father’s country store and sold Saturday night popcorn and RC Colas in their company-store movie theatre. Bobbie’s childhood and teen years were experienced in technicolor for certain.

Featured Artist Bobbie Brit Artwork

Bobbie’s creative expression was rooted in her family. Mother and Grandmother loved decorating, quilting, crocheting, hooking rugs, and gardening, foods for the table and beautiful plants just for “the looking.” Surrounded by all of that artful living, Bobbie always managed to add a class or two in the arts to a somewhat “extended” college career.  She married and travelled with her husband to live in Japan for several years until she returned to the states in the ’70’s and began a traditional work career in mental health that lasted for more than 30 years. That and her four children absorbed her creativity for most of those years. She did enter one show with a watercolor and won first place but actually she put her art aside until 2010 when she began to explore art on the internet and once again took a few classes. 

Featured Artist Bobbie Brit Artwork

Her creativity was somewhat limited until 2018-20.  Her world and the world as a whole had changed dramatically.  She found much needed self-healing and the feeding of her soul in the art she made.  She credits God as the miracle worker in her life and she believes she has been given the gift sharing her creativity through her art as part of God’s love.  

Abstract work is her special love and Picasso is her favorite artist.  Bobbie’s featured artist exhibition will be on display until February 10, 2022and she will be teaching at the Guild House using acrylic, cold wax, oil and other mediums.
