So this post is a little late since it is about First Friday in Raleigh. It is the 18th of June and just got word when I will be exhibiting in the front gallery of the VAE. It looks like it will be June of 2016. I was able to go to this year's first Friday and it was packed in ALL of Raleigh. I stopped in at Artspace to see the final juried FRESH show. Then walked to the warehouse district. Some streets were closed off for family movie night: The Goonies and it was creative street festival with food trucks, performers and tons of people on West Martin Street from the VAE down to the CAM. If next year is anything like this year, I couldn't have asked for a better time to be exhibiting work. So excited.
