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.....]

More publicity for the Carrboro Film Festival!

Thanks Valerie!  Already 23 films received as of today.


KIng of Carrboro dead at 73

 I only spoke to Robert Harman once and, like many things in our wonderful town, it was an odd experience.  I enjoyed seeing him weaving around town on his or strumming his beat up guitar outside Open Eye Coffee.  Read the tribute at the Carrboro Citizen link below.
