Group Show Flyer, final-02Inspired by universally felt energies and fears, Acme Art Studios will be transformed into an experience that is rarely felt in Wilmington. Through performance art pieces, video and sculpture installation, interactive art, and even the food being served, we will ask the audience to visit emotional and psychological depths to cleanse through action and reflection as they travel through the space. 

Visitors are encouraged to enter through our 4th street entrance, behind Goat & Compass (710 N 4th St, Wilmington, NC 28401), to fully experience the exhibition.

Opening Reception June 24, 6 – 10 pm. On view June 24 – July 15 with events throughout, TBA.

International Art Residency

Le Petit Atelier du Monde 2012

From April 8-27 I will be working with Gerlinde Pistner from Nurnberg, Germany and Virginia Wright Frierson from Wilmingon, NC in my studio at Acme Art Studios. We will paint together in my studio. We will present an exhibition of our paintings in the Acme gallery April 27 (4th Friday) 6-10 PM.

This is the first of an annual international art residency I will host at Acme. Le Petit Atelier du Monde (The Little Studio of the World) will take place in the spring of each year, either April or May. 2012 will feature Germany and the USA.  Future studios will involve artists from Macedonia, Denmark, Slovenia, France, among others. We will paint for three weeks and host an exhibition of the work. The exhibition will segue with the Wilmington 4th Friday Gallery tours. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.

The Le Petit Atelier du Monde 2012 exhibition will be Friday April 27 from 6-10 PM

Fourth Fridays

The Fourth Friday Gallery Nights art walk, a loosely organized self-guided tour through downtown Wilmington’s art galleries and art spaces, is halfway through its 2011 season.

The art walk, which takes place from 6-9 p.m. on the fourth Friday of each month, now has 27 stops, the most since it began in 2003. The grassroots event is also attracting more people than ever as it continues to strive for stability.
