The GreenHill Center for North Carolina Arts has big plans for its fall calendar at the gallery and studios – with presentations of artist talks, a variety of First Friday entertainment and a whole lot of artmaking fun for both kids and adults. In addition, this fall, Greenhill is offering opportunities for art and wellness through yoga classes and workshops.

The First Fridays events at GreenHill include Tristain Walsh and Dancers’ performance of “Intermittent Presence,” on Friday, Oct. 7 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and by Fair Sound on Friday, Nov. 4 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

On the first Friday of December – December 2 – the Greensboro College Chamber Choir will perform “A Night of Festive Music” at the Greenhill Center at 200 N. Davie St. in Greensboro.

Visitors to First Friday events will also be able to create their own art in GreenHill’s newly refurbished studios which will be open and free to the public.

According to program promoters, First Fridays visitors have been “captivated” by the performance of Tristan, Chloe and Aiden from UNCG’s School of Dance at past performances.

“Children danced along, couples paused in silence, and people gathered by the columns of the gallery, enamored by the fluid and at times emotional dance of these talented college students,” Greenhill staff stated.

In addition to art exhibitions, the center will also feature artists’ talks this month including one by Clarence Heyward and Alia El-Bermani on Wednesday, October 12 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

There are physical and mental well-being exercises as well. There will be “Yoga in the Gallery” sponsored by Dancing Dogs Yoga, Greensboro. A trained instructor will lead attendees through a 45-minute Vinyasa flow session while they’re surrounded by works of art. This “gentle” session will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 19 from 6 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. If you’re planning on participating, bring a yoga mat and a water bottle.

There are also several events this fall planned at Greenhill specifically for kids with an artistic flair.
