It's First Friday and we've got so much for you feast your eyes on -- starting with the opening reception for Optical Allusion and Freedom!

OPTICAL ALLUSION is a group exhibition that presents the artistic imagery of 5 local photographers. The pairings allow the viewer to experience varied interpretations of the work that, on its own, covers themes like nostalgia, growing older, the disenfranchised and LGBTQ and the overall experience of being in nature. Featuring Robert Carl Swann, Tara Ballard, Jennifer Sanderson, Sanjé James and Walter Ballard (no relation).

FREEDOM is a solo exhibition featuring the collages and paintings of Rolf Anthony Young (SC) who draws inspiration from the abandoned industrial spaces of downtown LA and the beauty of the low country of South Carolina.

PLUS --
- Help us welcome Joel Tesch, Maureen Seltzer and Jerry Siegan to the Gallery as a resident artists.
- A 25% off sale of works by Annette Buckner Hall.
- And visit some of your favorites who've been busy creating new work for you: Susan Miller, Annie Kinney and Matt Hirsheimer.

t's a beautiful day in downtown Raleigh. Come check out this piece by Anne Stagg!

"When it comes to cast off and forgotten things, I like to consider their past life, past value and imagine future uses so when I came across a bale of industrial wool felt remnants, I was immediately drawn to the fuzzy surface, perforated forms and residual marks of industry. I have been exploring this material through cutting, sewing, gluing, weaving and painting in search of new possibilities. I'm working with ideas about what we cast aside and how we ascribe value, loss, failure, absurdity, and function."

"I love seeing people’s reactions to my cut paper pieces. From a distance they appreciate the designs, but when they step in close … that’s where the fun begins as they slowly realize the artwork is made from layers of paper, each painstakingly cut by hand. Photos just don’t do these pieces justice." - BJ Smith Art

Congratulations to the winners of Landscapes and Seascapes. I didn't win (boohoo!), but I do have a couple of pieces that are included. See you tonight at the opening reception!
I sent my piece to Allen Clapp for the Black and White show back in October. He emailed me on Oct 31 to let me know he couldn't accept the piece because it was shipped with peanuts. I went back to my shipper, who packed and shipped the piece, to send a return label so the piece could be shipped back to me. I have yet to receive the piece. The tracking number reveals the piece hasn't been shipped yet. I've contacted Allen Clapp numerous times and he keeps telling me that he will get it done. What do you think I should do next? I'm on the west coast and my piece is in North Carolina. Has anyone worked with Allen Clapp? Does he normally forget things like this? It is possible that he is going through some things and this is all out of character for him, but I don't know that. If anyone has any information I would like to know that my piece is accounted for and on its way back to me. Thank you!
I am happy to be in this show!
Getting ready for First Friday September 1! Jim Hallenbeck Fine Art is Studio 8 - come check out Raleigh scenes, Blue Ridge Mountain scenes, NYC scenes, and more.
