Current Exhibit at the North Carolina History Center - Duffy Gallery
Come Hungry (For Art) to a Visual Feast
About the Current Exhibit
Craven Arts Council & Gallery has moved from 317 Middle Street to 308 George St while renovations are underway at our historic Bank of the Arts building. Therefore, our newest exhibit is a "moveable feast" being dished out at the beautiful Duffy Exhibit Gallery of the Tryon Palace History Center at 529 S. Front Street. "A Visual Feast" opens May 10 during the Downtown New Bern ArtWalk.
This feast for the eyes is a multi-media exhibit of local artists' fare guaranteed to whet (and satisfy) your appetite for art. The food-centric theme of this exhibit is inspired by Tryon Palace's focus on food this year. The Palace has movies (Fried Green Tomatoes, of course), tours programs and more.
North Carolina's contributions to cuisine are known far and wide. We are the birthplace of Pepsi and home to the Krispy Kreme doughnut. From steaming hot hush puppies, to just -steamed blue crabs, to fresh fish just caught that morning, to the world's best BBQ, there's plenty to love. Pass the slaw and pour a glass of sweet tea!
So who's on the menu? Participating artists include: Sally Anger, Brenda Behr, Chris Bennett, Janet Dixon, Jill Eberle, Janet Francoeur, Robert Hennon, Bill Lease, Ed Macomber, GeeVee Meyer, Rob Rigsby Jr., Sally Rowe.
