Marcella Slade talks with Triangle ArtWorks intern, Colin Gallagher, in main hall of the Gallery.

Pittsboro is home to the newest arts space on the Triangle Scene – Smelt Gallery.  “A non-conventional Art Gallery within an old smelting plant.”, Smelt describes itself as “an inclusive, multi-discipline, multi-cultural space that hosts a variety of exhibitions from monthly solos to pop ups, trunk, one night, collective and innovative shows for renown and up and coming Artist and Designers. We look forward to serving the Piedmont region, but are open to national and international work as well.”

Marcela wants the Triangle arts community to know that they are open to show the work of artists of all disciplines, alone or in groups for everything from events, to exhibitions, to installations. “We are open to everything from folk art to contemporary, but specifically looking for artists or groups of artists who can fill the large space with their work, or a unified installation or show.” You can contact Marcela through Smelt’s Facebook page.

Smelt Gallery opened in May and is located at The Plant in Pittsboro, so it is surrounded by “a diverse group of businesses aimed at developing local economy and resilience” such as Fair Game Beverage, Starlight Mead and Abundance Foundation.  You can check out the Gallery at its next event, the closing of its current show of Slade work on July 27. You can also listen to Gallery Director/Curator Marcela Slade talk about the Gallery recently on WHUP here.
