August Art talks: Fayetteville Undergound

One of the Fayetteville Underground's goals is to present more regularly scheduled artist talks in the coming months. We really want to engage the community, allowing potential patrons to learn a bit more about the artists and the work that the Fayetteville Underground represents. Our first Thursday opening receptions each month are a fun and lively event, but sometimes due to the crowds and the reception atmosphere it is hard for those who are truly interested in learning more about the artists and their processes to connect.

Last month, we gave a talk about the photographs by the Institute du loop, the exhibition that was visiting from Taiwan. Visiting artist Matthew Lyman spoke about his paintings in the Revolver, and Gailen Hudson spoke about his pottery that was featured in the E Street.

For the month of August, Leilani Law will be speaking about the Shift Gallery Collective,visiting from Seattle, currently in the Revolver and Gregory Moore will be speaking about his paintings on metal in the Vault. Their talk will be Thursday night August 26th 6:30pm.

Megan Chapman will be speaking about the photographic works in the Hive Gallery by Christian Demare, a photographer from Paris, France and his exhibition,
Ghosts in the Landscape #2 on Saturday morning August 28th at 11am, on the final day of the exhibition.

In the future we plan to have dedicated days once or twice a month when we will have the artist's talks so that people can depend on them as easily as first Thursday. We are excited about offering these casual and more intimate gatherings for those in the community interested in learning more about our current exhibitions at the Fayetteville Underground.
