Come to Triangle ArtWorks Durham Mixer!
Triangle ArtWorks has been busy busy busy these last six months, as our work is really starting to take off. The word is getting out about what ArtWorks is doing, and what we are trying to do, and the “buzz” is building! But there are still many people who don’t know about us, or just want to learn more.
So, we are having a little get-together! The Carrack Modern Art in Durham has been kind enough to offer us their space for the event. If you have not been to the Carrack and seen what they are doing to support the arts community, then this is a great opportunity! … Read More

I’ve been going to the Under the Radar Festival in Manhattan for the last several years. It is organized by and largely run out of the downtown citadel of off-beat theatre, the Public on Lafayette Street and LaMama just a few blocks away. Over the last 8 years I have seen theatre companies from Belarus, Argentina, Japan, Holland and Belgium, England, Italy and even Austin, Texas. I’ve seen theatres from across the 5 boroughs, too. What I haven’t seen, alas, is any representatives from the southeastern United States (sorry, Austin, you don’t count). This has worried me for awhile. … Read More

I met Carrie Knowles at her studio off Bloodworth Street in downtown Raleigh. The quiet neighborhood and her comfortable studio were the perfect spot to catch up with this busy writer/artist. We talked about her writing, visual art, the importance of collaboration, and her most ambitious and exciting project to date, the Cary Cross Currents Chamber Music and Arts Festival. … Read More

Have you ever thought about what in particular it is about the South, or the Triangle, that makes it such a creative place. Well, three “self-proclaimed creatives” are going to spend the next month finding out just that.
As explained on their website, “Something in Particular is a full-length documentary being filmed at over 13 locations across the Southeast and an accompanying interactive website. Both will chronicle the people and organizations driving creativity in the South today.”
This team kicks off its journey with a stop in the Triangle TONIGHT and has already set up many interviews with local people doing creative things from film to food. But in an effort to meet as many different people in the area as possible, from as many disciplines as possible, they are asking people to come meet them TONIGHT at Visual Art Exchange (309 W. Martin Street, Raleigh) at 6pm. They will be filming the events to get some general shots and sound bites from those interested in sharing a piece of their story. … Read More
