First Friday & Other News and Notes

Tonight is the last First Friday of the year! Be sure to get out, check out the great art and support your peers. One item of note: there will be an exhibit opening and book signing at 311 West Martin Gallery (immediately next to the Visual Art Exchange) from 6-9pm of the retrospective on Ben Williams. In true Friday Art Walk form, beer, wine and snacks will be served. If the art can't entice you, the snacks surely will!

The exhibit at 311 West Martin Gallery features Ben’s work as an artist as well as works by some of his most well-known students. It also features a large version of the portrait of him created by our own Christer Berg. (If you've been attending recently you've seen it!) It's also the image that won Best in Show at this years State Fair.

Finally, also a quick reminder about the 6:30 get-together we have this coming Monday evening 12/8 at the Gregg Museum’s temporary space at the Historic Chancellor’s Residence on Hillsborough Street (just east of the bell Tower) to see the exhibit on John Menapace’s work. And afterwards, for those who may also be inclined, we can grab a beer/wine or a beverage of your choice across the street somewhere. Yay!

If you have any questions, just let me know. I hope to see many of you there!
