January 4th Friday 6 - 9 PM

It was 5 years ago, in January 2012, that we first participated in the Wilmington and New Hanover County Arts Council's Fourth Friday Gallery Nights. Since then, theArtWorks™ has continued to grow and contribute to Wilmington's art community and small business economy. We now have over 50 working artists, we host classes and meetings, and our Gallery Verrazzano has presented a wide variety of events including parties, fashion shows, and many different art openings. 

In 2018, we are more committed than ever to fostering a creative environment for artists, educational opportunities, and enhancing the community through art. As well, we offer thanks to everyone who has helped make this possible! 

Looking forward to Al Dimarco entertaining!

Niki Hildebrand's "Dreams of the Lungs of the Earth" theArtWorks™

Niki Hildebrand on display at @ ‪‎theArtWorks‬™ Wilmington North Carolina . Opens March 2nd and runs March 2nd to May 15th. 
Hildebrand just returned from an artist residency in the mountains and made 400 glass leaves which she has now melded into an installation titled "Dreams of the Lungs of the Earth". This is shown along with her other art. 
Hildebrand\\'s work spans ideas of memory, transience, collective consciousness of humans and the earth. Thoughts of energy, beliefs and existence flowing through, of what we don\\'t see and the connections of them. Engaged with the human condition and often the human body, her work captures sensory parts of existence, creating a play between the physical presence of solid visuals and the awareness of the nonphysical indefinable matter. 
Hildebrand graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design and the Rhode Island School of Design. She has shown in exhibitions internationally and sold in England, Ireland, Sweden, New Zealand and United States. 
Hildebrand received grants and awards, including the ‪‎WH Mellon Foundation Grant as well as funding and scholarships to the ‪Pilchuck School of Glass and Penland School of Crafts. She has taught art at ‪UNC‬, ‪Cameron Art Museum and assisted at ‪‎Rhode Island School of Design and ‪Penland School of Crafts.

 Charlie started her love of painting after years of marriage and moving throughout the state of NC with her husband of 31 years, Phil.  When they would move, she found herself looking for things to, so she became a crafter.  Being an evolving character, she picked up a paint brush one day and hasn't put it down since.  Charlie can look at something and study it until she figures out how to do it...well as long as it isn't cooking.  Lol.  But that is how she learned to paint, at the beginning.  Now She goes to conventions and workshops every year to increase her knowledge in the art world.  She is a certified instructor with acrylics and WOILS, and teaches two classes a week.  Charlie has won awards with her paintings and creative thoughts.  She has even been published in an art book for one of her designs.  Charlie is a mother to 3 beautiful children, Philip-30, Samantha-27, and Hunter-23.  She has a daughter-in-love, Kim, and two grandchildren, Bella-5, and Trace-7 months.  She also has four legged children which help to calm her spirit when needed.  Charlie and Phil are looking forward to being a part of this great community, getting to know the other artists and making new friends.  If ever asked what makes her happy she will always tell you creating....but especially her family.  So if you ever need a break from creating, come to her studio and pull up chair, grab a diet coke from her refrigerator, and spend time talking about your family, pets, travel, or your art.  There is always an open door at Charlie's Studio.
