FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Wootini Gallery Roadshow & New Gallery Space Opening
Opening reception – Friday, September 3rd, 7 – 11pm
September 3 through September 30th, 2010
Carrboro, NC (August 23, 2010) – Wootini Gallery is excited to announce the opening of the Wootini Gallery Roadshow, a group exhibition of work from artists from the Wootini Art Tour, curated by Jess Wootini (aka “Team Sweet“). For two weeks this summer, Jess hit the road, traveling to Raleigh, NC; Philadelphia, NYC; Boston, MA; Chicago. IL; and Las Vegas, NV meeting artists along the way, interviewing them, snapping photos and collecting art to bring back to Carrboro. Because the participating artists range in backgrounds from street artist to photographer, the final art show will be an engaging, fun exhibition with a diverse body of artwork. The Roadshow will feature everything from mixed media work to handmade plush figures. As an added bonus to all of those who come to the opening reception, Boston-based artist, Evoker will be in attendance, doing some live painting around the gallery. Evoker is one of three Roadshow artists in Project SF, an impressive international art collective that produces innovative artwork seen around the world.
The opening of the Wootini Gallery Roadshow also marks the grand opening of Wootini’s new gallery and storefront location at 101 Lloyd St, a building that currently houses The Merch and MiniCassette Tees, and at one time was the Carrboro Jail.
