Every First Friday I try and get around to as many of the shows as I can while still hanging around long enough to actually enjoy the show. This September I spent most of my time at Vanness & Fellows as they were hosting my “Beer, Birds & Dirftwood” show. I also made sure to check out the first big show of Oak City Hustle contributor, Caroline Cockrell. While checking out her incredible showing I stumbled across the work of Seni Side. I was so impressed that we set up plans to do an Oak City Hustle feature on the fascinating process he has taken in creating his woodwork. On the way to the car I stumbled across the “Inside Out Project” from one of my favorite active artists in the world, JR. Wow.
As always First Friday Raleigh was an impressive showing of Raleigh culture. Let’s keep the rally going my good people!
