Forum Member Eric Saunders Exhibit Opening April 25th!

April will be a busy month for Forum member Eric Saunders! In addition to his open studio tour, as a part of the Fearrington Village Art in the Village promotion (see previous post), he will be part of a 3 person show at the Hillsborough Gallery of Art.

Eric won't say if this image will be in the exhibit. You'll have to go and find out for yourself!

In a show titled: Branching Out, Eric will be exhibiting along with artists Michael Salemi and Chris Graebner. The Show will run from April 25th through May 22nd. The Opening reception will be on April 29th from 6-9pm.

For more details go the Hillsborough Gallery website here. Lets all get up to Hillsborough and support a fellow Forum Artist. As we all know, Eric is a big supporter of everyone here at the Forum, and a fixture at art openings around the Triangle. So lets reciprocate some of that love and make a point of attending Eric's opening and see the show!

Second Annual Fearrington Village Studio Tour Preview

The 2nd Annual Fearrington Village Studio tour will take place Saturday and Sunday, April 9th and 10th. Saturday hours will be from 10am - 5pm, and Sunday from 12pm - 5pm. For directions and more information go to the artists website here.

If you really can't wait that long to see some art, there will be a Pre-tour Exhibit and Restaurant Menu Sampling at The Fearrington Barn this Sunday, April 3rd from 7-9pm.

Check out the art and be sure to see our own Eric Saunders!

Our own Eric Saunders will be exhibiting so let's all try and get out to support a fellow artist. There may also be snacks involved as well... not that we should need a bribe to get out there. But if that's what it takes, well, who are we to argue?

So mark your calendars and make it a point to go out, support Eric, and see a lot of other terrific art!

Christer Berg Picks Up More Awards!

Our own Christer Berg is now the proud recipient of not one, but TWO Addie Awards at the recent American Advertising Awards ceremony! Christer won for the work he did on the recent ad campaign for the Carolina Ballet Company.

Christer with both awards!

If you have attended any of our meetings earlier this year, you would have seen some of the work he created. (If you didn't, where were you???) It was fantastic! So don't miss out seeing some of the best photography being created in the Triangle. Come to the VAE on the first Wednesday of each month and see what you've been missing.

Congratulations Christer for a well-deserved award!
