Third Friday comes early this January! And Third Friday in Durham each month brings art gallery openings across the city. Here at The Scrap Exchange, we are kicking off 2010 with a great new gallery show titled "Heironymus Bosch Meets Three Artists", featuring the works of three local artists: Charron Andrews, Sara (No H) McCreary, and Leigh Werrell.
This exhibit promises a world of dazzle, paintings that dance, and the everyday. Charron Andrews’ shrine assemblages are a garden of earthly delights made from the cast-offs of daily life. Leigh Werrell offers a strong line-up of riveting portraits that are quietly compelling studies of ordinary people. And The Scrap Exchange’s own Sara McCreary turns discarded house paint and recycled canvas into wildly undulating patterns of color that make you want to dance.
We open this exhibit on Friday, January 15 from 6-9 pm with live electronic music provided by the Mystic Minstrels duo of Matt Gantt and Patrick Brown. As always, the public is invited to attend the opening for an evening of art, music, food, drink and friendship. We look forward to see you Friday evening, January 15th, at The Scrap Exchange!
