This weekend, I was ecstatic to open my first art exhibition, which is now on display at Arts Manifold (7406-K Chapel Hill Road, Raleigh, NC 27607).
::Flashback to February::
I posted in February of 2013 about an Arts Entrepreneurs' Conference at UNCG that I was considering going to. However, I did not make it to the conference then, but this past February I registered and drove out to Greensboro, NC to attend this year. You can check out the social media feed using #SEAC2014. Anyway, the conference was very helpful and a great place for all kinds of artists to network. This is how my current art show got its wings.
I met Nicole Canty, Abstract and Experimental Artist and Owner of Arts Manifold at SEAC 2014. We exchanged information and as she was looking for artists to exhibit in her space, I found it to be a great opportunity and followed up with her about it.
Friday, March 28th was our opening Reception date for my show, but we have another reception being planned due to a lower turn out than expected. Below, please find two pieces that are on display, "The Drum That Spoke" and "Instant Message" along with my Artist Statement for the show and a short picture slideshow. During the reception, I got a chance to explain the inspiration and meanings behind each of the seven acrylic paintings being displayed. Stay tuned for more information about the show or visit www.artsmanifold.com for more information.
