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. Sorry, but the spammers.....]

UNC Ackland Art Museum store opens on Franklin Street

The long awaited Ackland Museum Store opens today (3 minutes ago actually) on the corner of Franklin and Columbia in downtown Chapel Hill, just a stones throw from the Museum itself.  Here's what they say about the store:
The Store's inventory includes home d├ęcor items such as pottery, glass, and metalwork; kitchen and tabletop items; jewelry and accessories; children's toys and books; and stationery. Books about art history and criticism, contemporary art and design, and culture and lifestyles are also available, as well as books by UNC and regional authors and artists' monographs.
A dedicated gallery space features rotating exhibitions of original artworks in a variety of media by local and regional artists and artisans.

All proceeds from the store support the Ackland's exhibition and education programs. Store Hours:
Mon - Sat 10am - 5:30pm
Thu 10am - 8:30pm
Sun 12pm - 5pm
 I also encourage everyone (that, umm, includes me he writes sheepishly) to go by the two exhibits of 19th and 20th century German art now showing in the Museum -- along with a show by graduating MFA students at UNC.
