Precious Moment & more at Attic 506 Friday, March 8, 6-9pm

Attic 506 (new name for the Art Studios at 506A W. Franklin Street, 2nd floor)

open for 2nd Friday Art Walk in Chapel Hill:

March 8, 6-9pm

Featuring:

A hallway show by Brenda Goldstein (Durham) showing a series that explores her relation to space, color and light rendered in architectonic lines and curves in acrylic pencil & crayon.

Sourcing imagery from production sets, kitsch crafts, and prop designs, April Childers will present new paintings and sculptures in a show titled ‘Precious Moment’ at ‘My Room,’ Amanda Barr’s rotating exhibition space. Combining the principle of the carrot and the stick with gentle notions of instructional painting, mouse excrement and chintzy object references, the exhibition will be displayed as a ‘looping still’, taken from a narrative cycle involving authority and the rumination of it.

The Concern Newsstand run by Orvokki Crosby (Chapel Hill) open with new artist publications in store, plus video with original music by Clark Blomquist (Carrboro) of Tegucigalpan on display and a new publication by him called ‘Instant Ham’.

The debut of Jerstin Crosby (Chapel Hill) sharing a studio with Vanessa Murray (Carrboro). Jerstin will be showing his current work with sculpture, as well as video art by David Colagiovanni (Athen, OH) from Jerstin’s long running cable access video art show, Acid Rain. Vanessa will be showing painting & mixed media work from the past & present.

Lindsay Metivier (Carrboro) will have her photo studio open. In her space will also be a table ocomix collective The Weakly Group founders Max Huffman (Carrboro) & Andrew Alexander (NY). They will be selling comics, zines, prints & stickers.

Food of the Gods, solo show by Lydia McCarthy at Artspace

From September 7- October 27, 2018, go see 'Food of the Gods' a solo show by artist & photographer Lydia McCarthy at Artspace, downtown Raleigh.  We sell her limited edition book "Vision 5: The Vibratory Waves of External Unity," in store.

"Photography becomes a means of access to the unknown for New York photographer, Lydia McCarthy. Her saturated palette and psychedelic still lifes hover between the space of documentation, metaphor and material investigation. McCarthy strips her subjects of their context to exploit the idea that photography is able to capture a world beyond our comprehension."

Lydia is based in Alfred, NY but went to UNC CH for her MFA.
