First Friday "Meet the Maker" featuring Urban Terrain @ Retro Modern Furnishings

We are continuing our "Meet the Maker" event series with Durham-based maker, Aisha Sanders of the Urban Terrain. She will be introducing her geometric air plant displays to our store on First Friday, August 5! Aisha Sanders is a Living Art Designer and Botanical Curator. She discovers an amazing masterpiece in nature and “frames” it in a glass vessel or other display. Her terrariums and living art bring life to home and work environments and include care instructions to ensure success. Aisha’s work can be found at local markets and art exhibits throughout the Triangle. “The beauty of nature never escapes my mind. In the best of times and the worst of times I feel at home in nature. From the tiny, humble beginnings of a tiny seed to the flourishing greenery and glory of an intricate flower or fruit … I find pure joy and utter amazement.” ~Aisha Sanders

Southern Discomfort: the Art of Dixie @ Gallery C
Exhibition Dates: Aug 5-Sep 13

We expect to have over 25 artists participating in our 4th annual theme show providing fertile ground for the landscape artists, portraitists, figurative, conceptual, ceramicists and neon artists. The artwork could have a sense of “to the manor born” politeness or “married my cousin” impropriety. From trailer parks to Tara, there is a wonderful range of high-low to choose from.  There are so many wonderful, puzzling, weird and inspiring things about the South : Friday night football, William Faulkner, NASCAR, Duck Dynasty, Deliverance, debutantes, possums, the low country of Pat Conroy, moonshine, rednecks, the bible belt, hillbillies and Daisy Mae. Lord knows the South is a sultry place., We look forward to seeing what they come up with!

Cost: $5 on First Friday night only, all other times free to the public
