What a night at Visual Art Exchange! So many people out in the West Martin Street area. “The Treasure Ship” looks wonderful in the gallery, all lit up. My family met up with our friends: Tristen, Bryton and Matthew for a tour of the C.A.M. as well as the V.A.E. Just before that, we had some delicious “Hot Truck”: Chicken Tacos and a “Porchetta” sandwich (MMMMMMM!) It was a meeting of the VANS before the tour (no, I don’t receive any commission for that plug!) Can you guess who had which shoes on? What type of Vans will I have at the next Gallery opening…find out next month when we’ll stop by the Durham Art Guild.
We also saw some great kinetic sculptures by Kevin Duval at 311 West Martin Street Galleries. After speaking with the artist, he told me that several of his fabricated metal sculptures were created from reclaimed metals as well as “found” ones. All in all, a GREAT FIRST FRIDAY in Raleigh!
