Stokes County Arts Council presents "Hal Tenny Fractal Concepts"

Jul 1-31

The Stokes County Arts Council is pleased to announce the opening of our upcoming exhibit of original pottery and fractal art by Hal Tenny of Hal Yeah Pottery in the Apple Gallery during the month of July. An in person opening will be held on Friday, July 9, 2021, from 5:30p.m.-7:00p.m. in the Apple Gallery of the Stokes County Arts Council 500 Main Street Danbury, NC. Tenny is currently retired and spends most of his time creating art and reading. He is an avid science fiction fan and has written and published two novels, two short story collections and several single short stories that are available on Amazon and Kindle books. He also enjoys woodworking and has a complete woodworking shop that shares space with his pottery studio. He and his wife currently live in Danbury with their son and daughter and two grandchildren. The images in this show are of various themes, though for the most part, Tenny’s work is science fiction and fantasy based. He also has some abstract and organic like images being exhibited. They are all fractals created with a combination of math formulas and adjustments of their given variables. In some images he has composited into the work real life objects and plants to create surreal images. A portion of his pottery is traditional such as plates, bowls and coffee mugs, but he also likes to manipulate clay into unique designs, almost like sculpturing. “Clay can sometimes be UN-cooperative, and it takes a certain patience to get what my mind comes up with. I like to create potter that almost seems alive,” explained Tenny. Over the years, Tenny has received several awards and recognitions for his work. He received a best of show award at the Hammondsport Art Festival in New York. His fractal work was selected as one of the 25 winners in the Benoit Mandelbrott Fractal art Contest 2011. That same fractal piece was chosen by the editor as the cover art for the magazine REDES. Tenny participated in an invitation only digital art exhibition in May 2011, sponsored by Paper New England. The event was titled The Digital Palette and was held at the Artspace Gallery in Hartford, CT. In 2017, Tenny’s fractal art was featured prominently in the Marvel film, “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2”. Much of his fractal work was further conceptualized by other concept artists as well as four or more visual effects companies. His art appeared exclusively on the planet 'Ego' and was used in part to create 'Ego's' palace, various floor and wall designs, as well as furniture and separate bedroom buildings. Much of the underground caverns were almost entirely based on his fractal work. Tenny received onscreen credit as a concept artist for his work. This exhibit will be on display July 1-June 31, 2021 in the Apple Gallery. The Stokes County Arts Council is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9:00am-6:00pm, Saturday, 10:00a.m.-6:00p.m. and Sunday 1:00pm-6:00pm. For additional information about the exhibit, please contact the Stokes County Arts Council at (336) 593-8159 or visit www.stokesarts.org.

Mayberry 4 Paws Rescue (a 501 c 3 non-profit organization) started in 2008 with funds from a yard sale. The original goal was to help increase affordable spay and neuter in our county, as a means to reduce the number of dogs euthanized at our local shelter. Through years of hard work and many volunteers, we have increased our efforts. We promote change to county ordinances to offer more protection for animals. In addition to that, we work tirelessly to continue to offer low cost spay and neuter services as well as helping to place more than 800 dogs, annually, with our rescue partners and into perfect homes. The funds from this tournament will help us continue with our efforts.

Museum on Main Street Tour 2021-2022: Crossroads: Change in Rural America

Dec 4 - Jan 9

Save the Date: December 4, 2021 to January 9, 2022 - VT/Reynolds Homestead to host "Museum on Main" --Introduction/Welcome to Crossroads: Change in Rural America. Hosted at the Patrick County Chamber of Commerce/Creative Arts Center, 334 Patrick Avenue, Stuart, VA. ? Sliding or flip-up panels explore different aspects of rural ife that experienced great change over the past century. Welcome to rural America, a crossroads of change in a vast land. American Indians who were already here, those who came in search of a better life, and people who were forced to move all contributed to the development of rural America. Throughout the 19th century, the majority of Americans lived in rural areas. They built their lives around the work of harvesting what the land could produce—the food, fuel, fiber, ores, and minerals crucial to a growing nation. They built communities at rural crossroads—small towns that became centers of commerce, politics, and culture. But conditions favorable to robust rural communities changed. Early in the 20th century, growing urban populations shifted economic investment and political influence from the counties to the cities. Since then, the pace of rural change has accelerated. Today, rural communities are at a new crossroads—a meeting point of ideas where they can chart their own future. With their innovations and creative spirit, rural Americans are helping to define and shape the future of the country. Subtitle: Where people meet, ideas interest, and change is constant. ---Credits: Crossroads: Change in Rural America is a Museum on Main Street exhibition developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. Brought to you by the [state humanities council]. Funded by the U.S. Congress. [State] programming is supported by [state partners].
