About this blog

This is my blog on the arts scene of Carrboro, Chapel Hill and surrounding Triangle communities. I'll focus on visual arts and the 2ndFriday Artwalk and other visual art events but that doesn't mean I won't chat about music, literary events, film or anything else in the local creative world. Please email with ideas, links, comments or brickbats. [I have comment moderation on so if you don't see your comment right away that means that I haven't had a chance to approve it yet.

Come Out and Play!

[Photo from the press release]

The annual Come Out and Play Sculpture event has its opening this Saturday from noon til dark. It is great fun: wonderful people including the hosts Debbie Meyer and Eric Brantley, great and interesting art and a beautiful rural setting. For more info see this press release and directions on this flyer. Here's a teaser from the press release:


For the eighth year in a row, sculptors will display their creations in the Come Out and Play sculptor show at JimGin farm just outside Carrboro. Many of the works will be for sale.

The opening party will be held Aug. 29, noon until dark. Every Saturday thereafter through September, receptions will be held starting at 4 p.m. and running until dark. There is no admission, and all are welcome, including dogs if they are on leashes.

Sculptures of many media and form, created by 47 artists, will dot the landscape of this 17-acre horse farm at 150 Wild Horse Run, Pittsboro, NC 27312.

This show began in 2002 as part of a group of shows put on by Hunter Levinsohn, Jackie Helvey, Anke Gassen, Hollie Taylor, and Debbie Meyer to honor the victims of 9/11. Attendees, who loved seeing sculpture in an outdoor setting, and artists, who often don't have a place to display larger sculptures, asked for it to continue. Over 800 people attended last year's show during its five-week run.
