Lots of variety at the Fayetteville Underground, in both artwork and activities, largely thanks to our intrepid leader, Samantha.
Regular events include the Friday Morning Portrait Group which has been meeting on Friday mornings. Various artists from the community at large come to draw or paint from a 3 hour portrait sitting. All are welcome to participate.
Below is a photo from last week's session:

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.
