We'll be hosting a "Holiday Extravaganza of a First Friday on November 7th, and I promise that more details will follow.

If you'd like to extend your weekend of artistic fun in The Sandhills, please also mark your calendar for the Saturday show at The Country Club of Whispering Pines. A few of your favorite artists from Artist Alley will be in attendance. You can expect to see Kathleen Miller, Amy Smith, Charlie Oliver, Jaeja Jackson, Wayne Black, and Yours Truly too.

I hope to see you at both events!

Artist Alley announces its final call for North Carolina Artists in 2008. Artist Alley, located at 167 E. New Hampshire Avenue in downtown Southern Pines, currently represents the work of more than fifty North Carolina Artists and Fine Craftspeople. These include jewelry makers, sculptors, painters, potters, glass artists, wood craftsmen, and others.

“We display an amazing array of affordable artwork here at Artist Alley.”, explains gallery owner, Jean Skipper. “Our body of work evolves constantly as our existing artists continue to express their talents while new artists join us. With a deadline of November 14th, this call for artists represents that last opportunity that North Carolina Artists will have to join The Alley before the holiday season. Specifically, we’re seeking watercolor painters, metal artists, and additional glass artists; but North Carolina Artists in all media are welcome to apply.”

Founder Kathleen Miller adds, “Artist Alley was established as an artists’ coop in Moore County in 1999, and the gallery continues to maintain the cooperative spirit that’s been the foundation of its success. There’s a sense of community among the talented individuals who showcase their work here, and they freely share their welcoming spirit with others.”

It won't be published or shared; but it is needed so that a reply may be sent. Applications are also be available in person at Artist Alley.
