College of The Albemarle – Dare Opens New Art Exhibition

College of The Albemarle (COA) is pleased to announce the opening of “Density of Light,” an exhibition of abstract paintings and works on canvas and paper by Jill Block.  The exhibition will open on November 11, 2022, in the Professional Arts Gallery at COA – Dare.

Block lives in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, and is a full-time, self-taught abstract artist. “My painting process is simple,” shared Block. “I choose a few key colors I know I want, and then go from there adding other pops of color that complement and balance the composition.” Block’s most recent solo exhibitions include Dare County Arts Council in Manteo, North Carolina, and Town Hall in Duck, North Carolina.

“Density of Light” will run from November 11-28, 2022.  The gallery is on the second floor of the Professional Arts Building at COA – Dare, 205 Highway 64 S., Manteo, North Carolina.  The public is welcome to visit the gallery Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The artist’s opening reception will be held on Friday, November 11th, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at COA – Dare.
