Emerging and Known Artists Exhibition to open at Hannah Block / Community Arts Center


A new art exhibition featuring the work of eight local artists spanning a range of mediums opens Friday, January 27th at the Hannah Block Historic USO / Community Arts Center.Two of the participating artists, Ivey Hayes and DA Pascua, stopped by the WHQR studios on Wednesday, January 25th to talk about their work.  And although we usually post audio files of our midday interviews, this file suffered serious damage and is, unfortunately, not publishable.

The opening reception for this new exhibition coincides with the Fourth Friday Gallery Walk, Friday, January 27th from 6 PM - 9 PM.  The event is free and open to the public. 

Featured pieces range from embellished pine needle baskets to jewelry to oil and acrylic painting to photography.  Ivey Hayes, an award-winning and prolific local painter, will unveil his first new work since 2010. 

For more information on this exhibition, visit www.wilmingtoncac.org. 

During our Classical block on Tuesdays through Fridays at 12:06, Jemila Ericson and other staff members host a celebration of the arts and culture of the Lower Cape Fear. They interview artists, actors, dancers, writers and creators of community events--all the inspiring movers and shakers who enrich our lives.
