What’s Up
February 1, 2008

By Michele Natale, Correspondent

Raleigh’s First Friday walk announces the opening of another downtown gallery, a second floor space on Hargett Street run by Adam Cave, who, as former gallery director of Ridgewood’s Gallery C, is a familiar face on the Raleigh art scene. His grand opening announces a slate of gallery stable artists: Stephen Aubuchon, David Hewson, Wayne Taylor, Donald Furst, Wayne Trapp, Matt Lively and Jennifer O’Connell, and includes exclusive Raleigh representation of his father, accomplished painter Joseph Cave. The new space is a light-filled suite of rooms in a turn-of-the-century building. Along with the reincarnation of the former Glance space on Martin Street as a mix of galleries and art studios, and the anticipated opening of Rory Parnell’s new gallery on Fayetteville Street, the downtown Raleigh art scene abounds with impressive signs of new life. 1151/2 E. Hargett St., 2nd Floor, Raleigh 838-6692

The First Friday Agenda: February 2008
Finally after what could be called the Raleigh Art Scene’s winter (with the death of two staples of exhibit space, Glance and Bickett), we have Spring. Two new galleries are opening their doors this Friday– Adam Cave Fine Art and The Body Center. Whether or not they will fill the void left by Glance and Bickett is yet to be determined, but ACFA has a beautiful space in the old Heilig-Levine Building and The Body Center’s hybrid of meditation and progressive art may just be weird enough to work.

The Hargett Street Crawl
The Hargett Street art crawl (a conveniently walkable section of the night’s activities) starts at The Longview Gallery (corner of Hargett and Blount), presenting Artists Make Altars. Longview’s exhibits of spiritual work are usually a bit more subtle than this one: in their collective statement, the artists “hope these altars make explicit what is frequently left implicit – that making art is a spiritual practice.” Next up is newcomer Adam Cave Fine Art (second floor of 115 E. Hargett, above the Landmark). Adam comes from Gallery C and brings with him a more conservative style to Hargett Street. Featured artists this month include an amazing line up: Steven Aubuchon, Joseph Cave, Donald Furst, David Hewson, Matt Lively, Jennifer O’Connell, and Wayne Taylor…
