Artist Helen Dixon Shows at Burgwin-Wright

The Burgwin–Wright House and Gardens will have an opening reception for Helen Dixon’s Fourth Friday exhibit “Painting Outside the Box.” The reception will be held 6-9 p.m. July 26 at 224 Market St. Light refreshments will be served.

Inspired by her daughter’s advice to “think outside the box” and use different color combinations, Dixon’s pieces are bold and vibrant. Her goal as an artist is to create something that no one has ever thought of before, things “so original that when one sees it they know it’s a Helen.”

Dixon received her Bachelor of Arts in Art History from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Her work is shown in Wilmington, Raleigh, Sanford and Bald Head Island.

Built in 1770, the Burgwin-Wright House and Gardens is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Guided tours are offered on the hour from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Visit for more information about Fourth Friday, tours and other special events.
