One of my teachers and mentors, Edge Barnes is having an opening at Cape Fear Studios, 148 Maxwell St. in Fayetteville, NC this Friday, June 26 from 7 – 9 PM.
Although I was unable to participate, I was able to get out and see the annual Art and Craft fair at Pullen Art Center on Saturday. It was a gorgeous day, sunny and warm with a nice breeze.
There was jewelry, fabric, paintings, prints, beads, paper arts, and of course pottery.
It was good to see everyone from the center, and all their creations. I find it’s always a bit disappointing sometimes to see everyone’s work in progress and then miss out seeing the finished work when they pick it up and take it home.
I did go inside to rest at one point and overheard many nice comments about the current Circle of Eight exhibit in the lobby gallery. Beautiful work there. I tried to take some pictures before the accident, but the glass fronted cases made it difficult to get decent images. If you’re in the Raleigh area, definitely go check it out.
There’s a ‘participant’s work’ show in November, so I hope to get a piece or two of my saggar work into that.
It will run from September 2 until October 31, so if you’re in the area, check it out!
I know I’m looking forward to it!
