This photo by Kirk Lanier depicts autumn, I think, but I'm looking for Spring . . .

First Thursday

What a great way to blast into 2014!
A serene front gallery installation by Nicole Howard has been much anticipated, and it delivers 100%.





Nicole's inspired ceramic vessels are home for various perennial plants: creeping Thyme, chili peppers and succulents.





The Main Gallery features paintings by our newest artist Stephanie Petet:











Stephanie's paintings adorned the stage alcove on the New Year's Celebration "Last Night," which featured Word Wars, Phunbags, and other Comedy performances. On New Year's Day, poetry readings infused the Underground with verbal images as well.
As always, there are plenty of surprises. Do come and see!

Looks like I got ahold of some misleading information.
The Underground IS participating as a venue for Last Night tonight, but we are the comedy stage, including Phunbags and much more!
Also,  along with our visiting artist, Jessie Ward, we feature a new and exciting installation in the front gallery by member artist Nicole Howard. Come, relax, enjoy. The new January exhibit is up!

On Saturday, Dec 8th, the Gallery opened to visitors at 10 and a performance at 3 o'clock. Mike and Sonya Davis Gutierrez and friends sat and played for about 45 minutes on the floor of the main gallery. The performers coaxed strange music from their toys. There are some notable pieces of artwork in the galleries this month. Of special note are several small horizontal landscapes by Doug Randall. A steal at less than $100 apiece. Robert Lemming has wowed us again with imaginary use of ordinary materials. Two large wall mounted pieces using dark grey foam and hot glue or silicone. Also affordable. Examples of three separate series by David Bachman. A great variety of teapots are on display from Siegele and Haley. Lots of Greg Moore stuff. Too much to mention it all. Come see it! We'll be open late on Weekends for the next few weeks.

Next week our Opening will be Thursday from 5-8pm. Kate Baer and Stacie Florer join the usual suspects with plenty of new work to show.







As we move into a new year, it is interesting what has been accomplished at the Underground, with some highly regarded new members, their energy, and desire to make the organization all it can be. What that is, of course, is not perfectly clear, but one thing is for certain, we have begun to broaden what we offer to our visitors and supporters. All of us are committed to provide the highest quality art possible.

One key element in progress has been our gallery manager, Samantha Sigmon, who, once she has had her coffee, is a veritible whirlwind of activity. Samantha has provided a single minded effort toward making our space at 101 W. Mountain Street into a first class gallery. We are very fortunate to have her.

Cold, cold sleet 'n snow. For those who brave the elements this Thursday, Fayetteville Underground is undergoing its last transformation of the year. As promised, William Mayes Flanagan (seriously, call him Bill) has finished a barrage of 5x5 paintings featuring Luna, his favorite model.





Jan Gosnell is showing a variety of offerings including this figurative abstract or abstracted figure, or something . . .




One of our brand new artists is Kate Baer, bringing distinctive jewelry to the gallery gift shop.

Kate Baer Fossils



Also in the giftshop find Ed Pennebaker Ornaments of various kinds:


Does anyone recognize this guy?





Martha Molina can probably be persuaded to tell you about him. . .

In Kirk Lanier's studio yesterday I was with a gallery visitor looking at Kirk's photographs. She was trying to decide which she liked best, possibly thinking of making a purchase. For a moment she thought one was best, then another. She skipped back and forth among 5 or 6 photos and never could decide. I understand, since I feel the same way. They are all great!
