Durham artists and art admirers will soon welcome yet another art gallery to the bustling Durham community. SPECTRE Arts, a art gallery with two studios, will celebrate its grand opening on May 17th, 2013 from 6-10pm at 1004 Morning Glory Ave.
SPECTRE Arts inhabits a newly renovated church built in 1910 located in the historic Golden Belt district in Durham, NC. SPECTRE believes that art is a vital form of communication and social engagement and is dedicated to promoting contemporary visual and performative practices by stimulating dialog between artists and the community. SPECTRE Arts will provide a welcoming environment that includes studio, workshop, and exhibition spaces along with a variety of programming in order to encourage collaboration and exchange.
The gallery will be exhibiting prints by Jeremy M. Lange from his work on the in-progress documentary film "Farmer Veteran". Loamlands Duo will provide music, Wine Authorities will be on hand to share from their spring selection, Ponysaurus Brewery will be debuting their fine, craft beers and Pie Pushers will be available to fill patrons' bellies.
For this special 3rd Friday event, The Bridge Bus will be providing FREE transportation to all gallery hoppers, running continuously through the night with stops at SPECTRE Arts/Golden Belt, The 9th Street District and Downtown Galleries.
