Meet the Artists of “Reunion”
NoDa Company Store
4:30-6:00 p.m., immediately preceding 1st Friday Gallery Crawl
Artists Jerry Kirk, Raed Al-Rawi, Frank Haas and Rusk Masterton were part of the original group of artists that helped to develop the NoDa art scene beginning in 1991. They, as part of the group “Eclipse,” launched the now closed art galleries 23 Studio and Wrightnow Gallery on N. Davidson Street, which became important showcases for local art. While they have remained good friends in the years since, they have not had the opportunity to exhibit together until now. For their small group show at The Company Store they will showcase new paintings and prints.
Opening Reception for Charles Williams; CONTINUUM / DAY
New Gallery of Modern Art
In Charles Williams’ debut solo exhibition at New Gallery of Modern Art, the North Carolina based painter continues to explore the nuances of his emotional relationship with water — this time investigating thoughts, emotions and experiences from the past, so that what was once hidden has now become an artistic public journal for viewers to co-explore his aquaphobia, and stereotypes of swimming amongst African Americans in the South.
